By James Agberebi: Super Eagles forward Alex Iwobi was rated average in Arsenal’s 1-0 Premier League defeat to Tottenham Hotspur in the North London derby at the Wembley Stadium in Saturday.
The ratings were done by mirror.co.uk who scored the performances of each players from both teams over 10.
Iwobi got five for his contribution after coming on for Mohamed Elneny in the 65th minute.
Commenting on the Nigerian’s performance, the British paper wrote: “Brought on for fresh legs but not able to make an impact.”
However, Iwobi was even rated higher than new £57m record signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and fellow new arrival Henrikh Mkhitaryan who both got four.
Harry Kane scored the only goal of the game as he powered in a header off Ben Davies cross, the striker’s 23rd league goal of the season.
It was his seventh goal in his last seventh game against Arsenal in the derby.
