Arsenal manager Unai Emery has urged Alex Iwobi and his Arsenal teammates to express themselves more on the pitch and not be afraid to make mistakes.
Iwobi has been a revelation this season for Arsenal churning out six appearances, scoring a goal and providing three assists.
“We can’t just stop at one mistake,” Emery told Arsenal’s official website.
“I think for Alex and our other players, we need to work on things every day.
“They think, ‘How can I improve?’ or ‘How can I do better in a different situation within the game?
“The mistake is to learn and to attempt another action.
“The confidence is giving them the possibility to do the things well and also, when they make a mistake, it makes them want to do better on the next attempt.
“I think my idea with the players is to give them confidence every day by working hard in every session, in the video analysis, with the videos we give them.
“We give them the opportunity to watch their action first, their good actions, their bad actions, and this is the way for them to take a lot of confidence or learn how to improve.
The 22-year-old will be aiming to make his seventh appearance in the English Premier on Sunday.
