Iwobi Gets 'Mixed Ratings' In Arsenal's Embarrassing Loss To BATE Borisov In Europa LeaguePublished: February 15, 2019
Alex Iwobi played for 90 minutes as Arsenal slumped to an embarrassing 1-0 defeat to BATE Borisov in Thursday's Europa League Round of 32 first leg fixture.
Unai Emery's men are faced with the task of winning the second leg with more than a goal advantage.
These are how some of the media in England rated Iwobi on the night.
The mirror.co.uk in their appraisal of the performance of the Nigerian wrote:
"Alex Iwobi. 6 - Lively on the edge of the area but lacked the creativity to play a final ball."
The4thofficial.com considered the Nigerian as the Gunners' best outfielder on the night.
"LAM: Alex Iwobi – 6/10."
"He was Unai Emery's biggest weapon going forward, but he lacked the cutting edge in the final third."
ESPN. com gave Iwobi a 6 out of 10 which ordinarily is a pass mark albeit in this case a rather unsatisfactory showing by the Nigerian.
"MF Alex Iwobi, 6 -- The Nigerian tends to have one good game followed by one bad one.
"After a decent showing at Huddersfield at the weekend, he was poor on this night. He seemed more affected than most by the bumpy pitch."
For www.madaboutepl.com, it was a below par performance by Iwobi which earned him only a 4 out of 10.
"Alex Iwobi 4/10. Just like Guendouzi, Iwobi showcased immense work-ethic but he struggled to make his presence felt in the final third."
