Iwobi fit to play against City

Contrary to speculations that  Arsenal striker, Alex Iwobi will be out of today’s League Cup final, Iwobi will be ready and dressed up to play against the Premier League table toppers Manchester City.


The fast rising Super Eagles attacker was seen training with the rest of the squad yesterday even as manager Arsene Wenger confirmed that he was fit to play.

Iwobi was replaced in the dying minutes during their shock 2-1 loss to Swedish minnows Ostersunds in the Europa Cup. Arsenal limped into the last 16 of the Europa League on 4-2 aggregate.

“He wasn’t injured. He only got a cramp,” Wenger said of Iwobi.
