Iwobi: I Was Robbed Of My Hull Goal!

Iwobi: I Was Robbed Of My Hull Goal!

 

By Johnny Edward: 

 

Arsenal forward Alex Iwobi has cheekily expressed his 'displeasure' at being denied his first Premier League goal of the season by his teammate Alexis Sanchez at the KCOM stadium on Saturday.

 

Iwobi's goal-bound shot in the 17th minute was deflected in by Sanchez who claimed the goal to the dismay of the 20-year-old Nigerian international in Arsenal's 4-1 win over Hull City.

 

The Super Eagles star celebrated as if the goal was his before replays confirmed Sanchez had taken a touch. 

 

But Iwobi was happy with the maximum points recorded by the Gunners as a brace from Sanchez and strikes from Theo Walcott and a thunderous 30-yard strike from Granit Xhaka sealed the Gunners' third straight win of the season.

 

Iwobi, who had another impressive game for the Gunners, took to Twitter to express his 'unhappiness' with a crying smiley.

 

"Great performance today, got robbed for what I thought was my goal. Onto the next #AFC #BIG17 #COYG #3Points," Iwobi wrote.

 

Arsenal face Nottingham Forest in their next game away in the third round of the FL third round on Tuesday.

 

Iwobi has made four appearances so far for the Gunners in all competitions this term.
