Arsenal fans have expressed their disappointments over Alex Iwobi's below-par performance in the Gunners' 1-1 home draw with Tottenham Hotspur in the North London derby on Sunday at the Emirates, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Iwobi returned to Arsenal's starting line-up against Spurs after coming off the bench against Ludogorets in last Tuesday's 3-2 UEFA Champions League win.
However, against Spurs, Iwobi struggled to impose himself in the game, giving away possession s and also going on to miss a golden chance for Arsenal in the first half after being set free on goal by by Alexis Sanchez's perfect pass.
Iwobi was later replaced by Olivier Giroud on 70 minutes.
Reflecting on the outcome of the game, some Arsenal fans took to their twitter handle to vent their frustration on Iwobi's poor showing against Spurs.
Laura @Felmo stated that Iwobi failed to improve from previous poor performances.
"Iwobi wasn't good again was he?," she tweeted.
Rob @RHealyoo described Iwobi as the worst Arsenal player against Spurs: "Iwobi chief culprit."
Ozilosophy @Ozilosopl tweeted that he needs Iwobi to get back to form quicky.
"Need Iwobi back on form ASAP"
Mr Fane – @tfane87 listed Iwobi alongside Sanchez, Mesut Ozil, Giroud and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as players who didn't impress.
"Iwobi was atrocious, Ozil not up for the fight, Sanchez was poor, Chamberlain and Giroud looked disheartened and uninterested when they came on."
And according to other tweets: Ebi Preh @ebipreh: "Iwobi was atrocious… Has been poor recently."
Damai @LadyDMas:"Iwobi needs sometime out of the side to regain some confidence. Think we will see Giroud start at United after the international break."
Ellie @EllieSahal:"Sorry but Iwobi isn't as good as his hype."
MC @mediocer:"Iwobi should never have started."
