Iwobi wants more Gunners impact after Old Trafford draw

Arsenal midfielder Alex Iwobi has said the Gunners must make more improvement as they face Huddersfield this weekend.

Iwobi who was reflecting on the 2-2 draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford said his club was so much in a rush for result hence United escaped defeat, having came back twice to level up scores.

“We knew it was going to be a difficult game because Old Trafford is always a tough place to come.

“ I guess it’s a hard one to take because we were ahead twice. Both teams fought hard, though, so I guess a draw is a fair result for both teams.

“Maybe it’s just a mental thing of staying focused. We got a bit excited and tried to rush forward where we shouldn’t have. Maybe it’s about just making sure we settle things down a bit.”

He also went on to state that the players are enjoying themselves under new manager Unai Emery.

“Twenty games unbeaten says it all. The fans can see that we’re back to our best and you can see that too on the pitch. Every team is playing well this season so it’s going to be tough, but we’ll just keep going. We can only focus on our own performances.

“We’re very happy with how we’re playing and everyone’s confident. Our manager is always trying to improve things, so we’re never settling. We’re just trying to get better game by game.

“There’s just the small details that everyone can improve on. We’ll go back into training and prepare for Saturday now.”

Iwobi is expected to return to action when Arsenal host Huddersfield Town on Saturday, December 8.
