Super Eagles of Nigeria midfielder Alex Iwobi has taken time off to reflect on the 1-3 defeat handed to his Arsenal team by in-form Manchester City on Sunday.
Iwobi toed the part of his manager who believed that the officials of the match made poor calls in key moments of the match especially the third goal which gave Arsenal a mountain to climb just when they were trying to get the equalizer at 1-2.
”We were pushing to get the equaliser but unfortunately the referee wasn’t able to see that it was offside. There’s nothing that you can do, we just have to move on to the next game,” Iwobi said while speaking with arsenal.com.
Iwobi was partly culpable for the first goal conceded by the gunners as his poor giveaway was picked up by the citizens before Kevin De Bruyne converted for the only goal of the first half.
Iwobi believe that Arsenal dropped off a little after making a good start at the beginning of the match.
”Maybe we weren’t composing ourselves like we were in the first 10 or 15 minutes. ”
Iwobi concluded by saying the result was not a fair reflection of Arsenal’s performance.
”Man City are a very good team and you have to give credit to them, but I believe the result doesn’t show how well we did,” Iwobi concluded.
Aguero doubled Manchester City’s lead from the penalty spot in the second half, but a goal from substitute striker Lacazette threatened a brief comeback until a goal by Gabriel Jesus from an offside build up handed City a 3-1 win.
