Alex Iwobi has insisted that he is ‘grateful’ to play alongside the likes of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Mesut Ozil with Arsenal this season as the young star looks to help the Premier League side return to the Champions League this season.

Arsenal were able to claim a very comfortable win in the Europa League on Thursday evening. Nacho Monreal and Mesut Ozil netted for the Gunners while Ostersunds’ Sotirios Papagiannopoulos scored an own goal to complete the 3-0 scoreline.

Alex Iwobi has insisted that Arsenal still have two potential routes back into the Champions League as the Premier League club battle to take back a place in Europe’s top competition.

It was a superb outing for Arsenal on Thursday night as they put one foot into the next round of the Europa League. The London side were far too good for Ostersunds as the Sweedish side barely put up a fight.

Nacho Monreal and Mesut Ozil scored for the English side while Sotirios Papagiannopoulos scored an own goal as Arsenal ensured they returned to the Emirates with a healthy three-goal lead.

Arsenal recorded a comfortable 4-1 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon at the Emirates, after four goals in the first 22 minutes of the game.

Arsenal made a quick start to the game, as Alex Iwobi’s shot from the edge of the area was straight at Wayne Hennessey on six minutes. From the resulting corner kick, the Gunners took the lead. Granit Xhaka’s corner kick found Nacho Monreal at the far post and the defender headed home from close range.

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal suffered a 2-1 defeat at Bournemouth to fall further behind in the race for top-four spots. The big news prior to the game was Alexis Sanchez being omitted from the Gunners squad with speculation that he may be close to a move away from the north London club.

Bournemouth had the first attempt of the game on four minutes. Charlie Daniels cross from the left fell for Adam Smith of the edge of the area and the full-back pulled his effort just past Petr Cech’s left-hand post.

Matt Le Tissier has questioned Arsene Wenger’s inclusion of Alex Iwobi in the first-leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final with Chelsea, branding his selection ‘bizarre’, with Alexis Sanchez starting the game on the bench.

Arsenal were able to leave Stamford Bridge on Wednesday evening with their heads held high following a 0-0 draw in the first-leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final. The Gunners went to play their opponents knowing that any positive result would see them in the driving seat, with the second-leg due to be played at the Emirates Stadium.

On Saturday lunchtime, Arsenal host north London rivals Tottenham at the Emirates Stadium, as the home side attempt to gain ground on their local rivals in the Premier League.

Arsene Wenger’s side are currently four points behind Spurs in the table. However, a victory in this game could change the whole complexion of the race for the top-four spots.

However, victories in north London derbies have been hard to come by for Arsenal in recent years, as the Gunners only win in their last seven encounters with Spurs was back in 2015 in a League Cup clash at White Hart Lane.

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal recorded a comfortable 2-0 win over Brighton at the Emirates Stadium, with goals from Nacho Monreal and Alex Iwobi enough to give the Gunners three points.

Arsenal hit the front straight away and came close to taking the lead in the first two minutes. French striker Alexandre Lacazette smashed an effort from long-range against Mat Ryan’s post.

The visitors offered their first real threat on five minutes. Pascal Gross fired in a free kick, which saw Izzy Brown glance towards goal, but wide of Petr Cech’s left post. Arsenal started to dominate possession and Alexis Sanchez saw a low effort saved comfortably by Ryan.

Gunners produced un-Arsenal like display to draw at Chelsea 0

I have to say going into yesterday’s London derby against champions Chelsea I did not fancy the Gunners to get the win. However, a draw was always achievable if Arsenal decided to abandon Arsene Wenger’s football philosophy.

I thought that was very unlikely, yet low and behold the Gunners produced a very solid, always perfect away performance to draw 0-0 with the champions. The only thing missing was a goal on the counter-attack, which Aaron Ramsey came so close to scoring, but hit the post.

Europa League: Back Gunners at 20/1 betting odds for a strong start vs FC Koln 0

For the first time in 21 years, the Premier League giants from north London are not in the Champions League.

A disappointing domestic campaign resulted in Gunners finishing outside the top four last term, forcing them to settle for a place in a less alluring competition of Europa League. Arsene Wenger promises not to take this European challenge lightly, but is still expected to treat it the same way he treats the League Cup of FA Cup.

Europa League will be a perfect chance for certain players to gain match fitness and valuable international experience, while for others it will be perhaps the only chance to feel the pride of playing in the first team.

Alexandre Lacazette scores on Arsenal debut 0

Arsenal opened their preseason campaign with a 2-0 victory over Australian side Sydney FC at the ANZ Stadium.
The Gunners took the lead through a header from veteran German centre-back Per Mertesacker on four minutes. England international Danny Welbeck missed a penalty kick.

However, the big moment Arsenal fans will have been waiting for happened on 83 minutes. Club-record signing Alexandre Lacazette came midway through the second half and made a quick impact.

Alex Iwobi cut the ball back to the striker, who fired home to seal the victory for the Gunners. Everybody connected with the Gunners will be happy that the striker opened his scoring account so early his career at the north London club.
