Video: Alex Iwobi scores controversial third goal for Arsenal, but it’s another Mesut Ozil assist

Posted by

Alex Iwobi made it 3-1 to Arsenal against Burnley in their Premier League clash at the Emirates Stadium this afternoon.

However, some fans seem to think there was a hint of offside as the Nigeria international powered home from close range after another assist by Mesut Ozil.

To be fair, it looks a pretty close one to us, so we’re not sure the officials could have been expected to see it at high speed.

Ozil does well to thread a little pass through to Iwobi, who then finishes decisively to restore the two-goal lead for the Gunners and deliver all three points.

Earlier in the game, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored a fine opener in the first half and an even better strike to make it 2-0 in the second period.

Burnley then pulled one back but it wasn’t enough as Unai Emery’s side got back to winning ways after two consecutive defeats to Southampton and Tottenham.
