Alex Iwobi Reacts To Arsenal's 1-0 Win Vs Newcastle UnitedNigeria talent Alex Iwobi was delighted to play a part in Arsenal's hard fought 1-0 win over Newcastle United on Saturday evening.

The Hale End Academy product was one of the most impressive players on the Emirates Stadium turf, and had a chance to double the Gunners advantage in the 66th minute when he wriggled free in the box but his low shot was easily saved by goalkeeper Rob Elliot.

Television images suggest that Iwobi was replaced in the 72nd minute after picking up a knock, but both Arsene Wenger and the winger did not provide an update on the fitness of the Nigeria international in their post match comments.

Iwobi posted on ''Good To Get All 3 Points Today. Solid Performance From The Team! 🔴⚪ #AFC #BIG17.''

Iwobi has started Arsenal's last two matches in the Premier League, against West Ham and Newcastle United, taking his total appearances for the Gunners to 74 in all competitions since debuting in 2015.

Up next, Arsenal face West Ham United in the quarterfinals of the League Cup on Tuesday.
