Alex Iwobi impressed in Arsenal’s 4-1 win over Crystal Palace in the Premier League and was amongst the best players on the Emirates Stadium turf.


The Gunners doubled their lead when Monreal laid off a low cross for Iwobi who had the simplest of tasks in picking his spot from close range in the tenth minute.

In the Arsenal player ratings by Football.London, the Nigeria international was awarded eight marks out of ten, the third highest score behind Germany playmaker Mesut Ozil and Nacho Monreal, who both got nine.

‘’Really good performance. He was direct, looked confident and caused Palace plenty of problems. Scored a goal and was unlucky not to get another,’’ wrote Charles Watt on the Super Eagle.

Iwobi was criticized for his performances earlier this season, but has shown fine form in his last two matches.

Yesterday’s tie against The Eagles was his 80th appearance for Arsenal in all competitions since debuting in 2015.
