Arsenal Coach Hails Game-Changer Iwobi : He Helped Us With His Quality
Arsenal coach Unai Emery has said that Alex Iwobi showed his quality after coming off the bench in his side's hard-fought 2-0 win against Watford at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Nigeria international first had to be content with a role on the bench, with the Spaniard opting to start Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey and Aaron Ramsey in the attacking positions, but made a big impact when he replaced the Welshman 17 minutes after the restart.

On 81 minutes, the deadlock was broken when Craig Cathcart turned into his own net after a low cross from Alex Iwobi.

''I wanted to win. My ideas were about how we could change,'' Emery told reporters at the post-match press conference.

''We need players when in the match to be hungry to help the team. Leno is working every day for his moment, today he did that.

''And Danny and Alex Iwobi helped us with their pushing moments and quality. I am very happy with the team.''

He added : ''He (Iwobi) is working well every day. Three weeks ago he was outside the team because he had an injury.

''I am very happy with him because of his mentality. I want him to stay nearer the box to score and fining assists. This is the way for him.''

Iwobi has been involved in Arsenal's last four games in all competitions, starting twice in the Cups and coming off the bench in two games in the Premier League.
