Alex Iwobi became a subject of derision after Arsenal’s torrid run of form away from home continued , as they fell 3-1 at Leicester City. It was the Foxes first victory over the Gunners in 24 years.
The Foxes defeated a ten-man Arsenal 3-1 at the King Power Stadium thanks to goals from Kelechi Iheanacho, Jamie Vardy, and Riyad Mahrez.
Young defender Konstantinos Mavropanos was sent off early in the match for hauling down Iheanacho. The disadvantage did little to help to already struggling Gunners, despite Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang briefly drawing them level.
For Arsenal it was once again a night of defensive errors and sloppy passing which let them down. But for all the faults across the team that evening, the brunt of the blame is being directed 22-year-old attacker Alex Iwobi.
However, Arsenal legend Ian Wright said Iwobi will improve under a new manager. “When you look at (Ainsley) Maitland-Niles, Iwobi, (Kostantinos) Mavropanos, Reiss Nelson, Joe Willock, if that’s all they’ve got (on Arsenal’s young players), I feel those players are good enough to go to the next level with somebody who is going to coach them and help them progress,” Wright said.
