In his first club game after a scintillating outing for Nigeria Alex Iwobi made a cameo appearance for Arsenal featuring only in the last six minutes as the Gunners beat North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium, Extrasportsnigeria.com reports.
After the week-long previews that even preceded the FIFA break, it took only the two first-half goals from Shkodran Mustafi and Alexis Sanchez to end the debate.
And while it was party time for Iwobi it was the opposite for his Super Eagles teammates Wlfred Ndidi, Kelechi Iheanacho and Ahmed Musa who fell to league leaders Manchester City 2-0 at the King Power Stadium. Gabriel Jesus and Kevin de Bruyne ensured it was nightmare for the Nigerians.
Iheanacho came off the bench in the 67th minute, but Ndidi played from the start to the final whistle. The story was worse for Ahmed Musa who was not listed for the game as his long stay on the bench continues.
Chelsea handed a 4-0 win to West Brom at The Hawthorns but like Musa, continental award chaser, Victor Moses was not listed. is on the road to full recovery and did not travel to the West Midlands with the champions.
Alvaro Morata, Eden Hazard and Marcos Alonso scored to give Chelsea a 4-0 win and leap over Tottenham in the table to the third position with 22 points.
