Iwobi Eager To Get Cracking For Arsenal Goals, Assists

Arsenal forward, Alex Iwobi is eager to fight harder and be resourceful with more goals and assists for the Unai Emery’s side, reports Completesports.com.

Iwobi has had a hand in 10 goals (three goals and seven assists) so far this season, a feat he knows he must improve on if he is to be ranked among the best forwards at the club.

The 22 year old Nigeria international also admits he is still evolving as a player and has been undergoing some mental work towards better development.

“This season I feel much better and I feel like I’m in control, especially going forward in an attacking sense,” Iwobi told Arsenal’s website.

“I have an analyst now who is always trying to help me, which I didn’t have in seasons before, so he’s sending me clips and saying what I can do better.

“That’s helped me and I’d like to say I’ve been involved in a few goals this season, even if it’s not the assist or the goal, I’ve been getting a few pre-assists which go unnoticed. But at the end of the day as long as the team does well, that’s my main concern.

“I would say each day I’m still growing and still learning, but negatives, obviously they’re always going to criticise me for my goals and assists, which I need to add to my game if I want to be compared with the people I’m playing with.

“The main thing is just to remain calm. We’ve even been doing some mental work to remain calm under pressure and calm when I’m on the pitch, and this is something I’ve been working on, not just in football but also off the pitch as well.

“Now I’ve done it, I look back and it wasn’t easy, especially with the things I had to go through, so I can always say it’s going to be hard, but the rewards are definitely worth it.

“What’s next? Life is like a movie, you have to stay tuned. I can’t really predict what’s going to happen. We will have to wait and see. All I know is that playing for Arsenal, to me, is always going to be an honour. I’m always proud to represent this club and wear the badge.”

Iwobi will hope to end his seven-game goal drought in the Premier League when Arsenal visit Huddersfield Town for their next EPL game on Saturday.

He last scored a goal in the EPL in December, in Arsenal’s 3-1 win over Burnley.
