Speaking on Aubameyang , Iwobi told arsenal.com: ”You can see that he’s got electric pace and an eye for goal as well.

”He was involved in the link-up play as well, so we’re definitely happy to have him and we can’t wait to see what he brings to the team.

”He’s fun. He’s learning faces but he’s definitely enjoying his time here and there’s still more to come from him.”

On Mkhitaryan’s three assists, Iwobi said : ”We’ve seen glimpses in training and we were just waiting to see it on the pitch. As you can see from today, he’s just an amazing player.”
