Arsenal Fans Are Already Being Insufferable About Alex Iwobi

Arsenal fans are rather excited about the emergence of Alex Iwobi.

The teenager scored his first goal for the Gunners as Arsene Wenger's men bounced back from a pretty disastrous week to maintain any faint hopes they may have of a late charge for the Premier League title.

The 19-year-old Nigeria international was handed his first top-flight start in the match with Everton at Goodison Park, and showed brilliant composure to score the visitors' second shortly before half-time after Danny Welbeck had broken the deadlock early with his fourth goal in nine games.

The match finished 2-0, and Iwobi was unquestionably the stand-out player, and in fact, he was so good that some supporters are now comparing him to Anthony Martial.


Martial has been a diamond in Manchester United's otherwise glum season, scoring 11 goals despite being just 20-years-old.

Iwobi's guile and calmness under pressure earned him the comparison with he France international, but is it too soon?
