Iwobi Thrilled With Season’s First EPL Goal, Arsenal Win

By James Agberebi:

Super Eagles forward Alex Iwobi has expressed his delight after scoring his first English Premier League goal this season following Arsenal’s 3-1 win against Stoke City at the Emirates on Saturday.

Iwobi who was brought on in the second half scored Arsenal’s third goal to seal the win and temporarily take the Gunners to the top of the league table.

Charlie Adams had given Stoke the lead from the penalty spot after Granit Xhaka fouled Joe Allen inside the 18-yard box.

Arsenal’s two other goals were scored by Mesut Ozil and Theo Walcott.

It was Iwobi’s second goal of the season after scoring his first of the season in Arsenal’s 4-1 UEFA Champions League win against Basel last week.

Reacting to the win against Stoke, Iwobi went on to praise his teammates for rallying back to win despite going behind.

“Great team performance to come back from behind and good to get my first Premier League goal of the season,” Iwobi wrote on his Twitter handle.
