Iwobi: What Wenger Told Me Before I Came On Vs Manchester UnitedAlex Iwobi was frustrated following Arsenal's 3-1 loss to Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday, December 2, especially as they dominated the game, had more possession and played the better football.

The Nigeria international, who initially started on the bench, was introduced just 15 minutes in after Shkodran Mustafi pulled up with an injury, with The Red Devils already two goals to the good.

''I’m very frustrated. You could see the passion and the aggression we played with today but unfortunately it wasn’t to be and we just need to credit Manchester United,'' said Iwobi to arsenal.com.

''We were pushing to get the equaliser, had a few chances, but credit to their keeper, he made a few good saves. We didn’t take our chances and they capitalised on that and made it three, which basically killed the game.''

Asked what he was told by manager Wenger when he came on, Iwobi answered : ''Just to be direct, go forward, create chances and to try and score a goal.''

Iwobi made his eighth appearance in the Premier League this season against the Old Trafford outfit.
