Arsenal midfielder Alex Iwobi has revealed his delight as he is thrilled to have marked his return to the Premier League on Tuesday night when we played Sunderland.
The 21-year-old Nigeria international was yet to feature for the Gunners since April 2 when we faced Manchester City.
Iwobi was introduced to the game in the 69th minute for Kieran Gibbs at the Emirates Stadium; He took to his Instagram to express his excitement.
“Back Doing What I Love #AFC,” Iwobi wrote on Instagram Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Arsenal players want Sanchez to stay at the club next season, defender Laurent Koscielny revealed Wednesday even as speculation continues to swirl about the Chilean international’s future.
“Firstly, he scored a lot of goals for us but his first job is not to be a striker, it is more midfield but he is an unbelievable player. He just wants to fight and have the best result for the club,” Koscielny told Sky Sports.
“When you have a player like this in your team, to show the way we want to grow together, it is important and I think he has a lot of players behind him to keep him.
“I don’t think there are a lot of players like him and a player like this who can be the difference during the game, it’s rare. We want to keep him with us because we know he is so important for our team.”
Iwobi, who has now recorded 25 league appearances with three goals for Arsene Wenger’s side this season, came close to increasing the Gunners’ lead with a sublime shot in the 83rd minute but was kept out by Sunderland’s Jordan Pickford.
