By Johnny Edward: Super Eagles star Alex Iwobi has expressed his disappointment with Arsenal’s 1-1 Premier League draw against West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns on Sunday, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
A late penalty in the 89th minute from Jay Rodriguez earned West Brom a point from the game six minutes after Alexis Sanchez’s free-kick had deflected off James McClean into the Baggies net to give Arsenal the lead.
The result means Arsenal are yet to win back-to-back games away from home this season while West Brom are without a win in 19 matches, equalling the longest run in the Premier League since Aston Villa’s sequence ended in January 2016.
Iwobi who returned to the Gunners’ starting line-up in the absence of Mesut Ozil featured for 74 minutes before being taken off for Danny Welbeck.
He however thanked Arsenal fans for their support and wished them a splendid New Year.
“Disappointing To Only Get A Point Out Of Today. Thank You For Your Support This Year. Enjoy Your New Year Celebrations! 🔴⚪ #AFC #17,” Iwobi tweeted after the game.
Arsenal are fifth in the English Premier League table with 38 points from 21 games. They will host Chelsea in their next game at the Emirates on Wednesday with West Brom facing West Ham on Tuesday.
