One Arsenal fan has gone as far as to compare Alex Iwobi to Lionel Messi today as he tears things up against Fulham.
The Nigerian attacker has been a joy to watch for the Gunners so far, playing a key part in Alexandre Lacazette’s opening goal.

Iwobi has generally looked hugely improved under Unai Emery this season after a couple of years of making minimal impact at the Emirates Stadium.
Now, however, he looks a confident man ready to take players on and make things happen – with this video below of a filthy nutmeg attracting plenty of attention in particular…

Arsenal head coach Unai Emery deserves huge credit for the turnaround in the form of Alex Iwobi. I remember covering him play well at Barcelona v Arsenal in 2016 then scoring at Everton 72 hours later. A talent who lost his way badly. Amazing what a tougher training regime can do pic.twitter.com/wDghAFwnOP
