Iwobi benched as Arsenal close gap on top-4


Nigerian international Alex Iwobi was named on the bench for Arsenal in their rescheduled Premier League match against Southampton Wednesday night.

Arsenal gunned down the saints 0-2 away from home at the St. Mary’s Stadium.

Two second half goals from Alexis Sanchez and substitute Olivier Giroud secured all three points for Arsene Wenger’s men who are still looking to nick fourth position and final spot to the UEFA Champions League.

Alex Iwobi has become a constant sore sight on the Arsenal bench as far as many Nigerians are concerned.

He has suffered relegation to the Arsenal B Team and on his return a change of formation ensured he no longer seems to have a place in the team for now.

The win means Arsenal go 5th in the table with 66pts, one point above Manchester United and just four points shy of Liverpool with a game less than the Anfield outfit.
