Iwobi Starts In Arsenal Draw, Lukaku Fires United Past Bournemouth, Liverpool Slip

By James Agberebi: Super Eagles forward Alex Iwobi was on from the start as Arsenal found it difficult to break down a well organised West Ham side as they were held to a 0-0 draw in their Premier League clash at the London Stadium on Wednesday.

Iwobi, who later went off for Danny Welbeck on 71 minutes, had one of Arsenal’s rare opportunities but was unlucky to see his effort cannon off the frame of the goal on 31 minutes.

The 0-0 draw against West Ham means Arsenal have now gone three straight league games without a win and are now seventh on 30 points in the league table.

At Old Trafford, Manchester United put behind them the disappointment of losing to Manchester City at the weekend by edging Bournemouth 1-0.

Romelu Lukaku, who has been under serious criticism of late, was the hero for United as his 25th minute goal, off a Juan Mata cross, was enough to secure the three points for the Red Devils.

The goal saw Lukaku return to scoring form in the league after firing blanks in his last four games.

With the win, United are on 38 points, 11 points adrift of leaders City.

Tottenham returned to the top four after defeating Brighton and Hove Albion 2-0 at the Wembley Stadium.

A goal in each half from Serge Aurier and Heung-min Son in the 40th and 87th minutes secured the win for the North London club who are now fourth on 31 points.

And at Anfield, Liverpool were surpriseingly held to a 0-0 draw by West Bromwich Albion.

It is now back-to-back stalemates for Liverpool at Anfield following last weekend’s 1-1 draw against city rivals Everton.

Liverpool now occupy the fifth position and are on 31 points after 17 games.
