Alex Iwobi came close to matching a Nigerian record for the highest number of assists in a single season as Arsenal beat Burnley 3-1 on the final day of the 2018-2019 campaign on Sunday, May 12.
He provided the assists for the goals scored by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Eddie Nketiah, taking his total to six in the league this term.
The Hale End Academy product set a new personal best of 6 assists, surpassing his previous best of five which he achieved in the 2017-2018 campaign.
