EPL: Iwobi stars as Arsenal brush aside Leicester City

Nigeria international, Alex Iwobi, was one of the best players as Arsenal came from behind to beat Leicester City 3-1 at the Emirates stadium on Monday night.

Iwobi was handed a start by his manager, Unai Emery, and alongside German playmaker, Mesut Ozil, they were at the end of every good move made by the Gunners.

The 22-year-old playmaker created very good chances for his teammates, especially Alexandre Lacazette, who failed to convert any in a match the host started slowly.

The visitors, complete with their Nigerian duo of Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho, took the lead courtesy of a Hector Bellerin own goal in the first half.

However, Ozil equalised for Arsenal just before the break following a brilliant counter attacking move by the home side.

After the restart, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang came off the bench to put the game beyond the Foxes, scoring a brace as Arsenal clinched yet another wonderful win.

The victory means the Gunners have now extended their winning streak to 10 matches in all competitions with seven coming in the PL.

The Gunners move up fourth on the table on 21points, same as London rivals, Chelsea, who sit third thanks to their superior goal difference.

Up next for Iwobi and his side is a trip to Portugal, where they take on Sporting Lisbon in the Europa League before travelling to Selhurst Park for a date with Crystal Palace in the PL.
