Wenger hails Iwobi’s ta­lent

Fiji Sun - - Sport - Leonec@fi­jisun.com.fj Alex Iwobi.

Lon­don: Arse­nal man­ager Arsene Wenger is happy with Arse­nal’s 4-0 win over Wat­ford. “We scored goals and didn’t con­cede, and kept the game hav­ing a good flow even at 3-0 up,” he said. “I am pleased with Alex Iwobi’s ta­lent but even more with his at­ti­tude and his will­ing­ness to learn and to con­trib­ute with his team­work.”

Arse­nal kept their faint hopes of the Premier League ti­tle alive with an easy vic­tory over a poor Wat­ford side. The Gun­ners led inside four min­utes - Alexis Sanchez slot­ting in from close range - and con­trolled the first half. Alex Iwobi forced Heurelho Gomes into a stun­ning save and soon dou­bled their ad­van­tage by sweep­ing in from 12 yards to fin­ish off a su­perb team move. Hec­tor Bel­lerin’s shot de­flected in for Arse­nal’s third, while sub­sti­tute Theo Wal­cott com­pleted the rout.. -BBC
