'The chemistry is good and you can see that'

Alex Iwobi

Alex Iwobi is enjoying a stellar season, and he added another masterclass as we beat Leicester City to make it 10 wins on the bounce on Monday night.

The Nigeria international and Shkodran Mustafi spoke to the media after the match and this is what they said:

on the second-half performance
SM: I think we finished the first half well and it was important to score that equalising goal, that gives you a lot of motivation to go into the second half and keep pushing which we did for the last 15 minutes of the first half. Then in the second half we did some brilliant play, we have to give credit to the whole team because some of that stuff started with the goalkeeper and that gives us confidence for the games ahead of us. I am happy for Auba who came on and scored twice again, that shows every player in this team is important and everyone tries to give everything and overall we are happy.

on riding their luck in the first half...
AI: Leicester had a few chances but it shows that we have a winning mentality and were strong throughout the game and were able to withstand that and come out with another victory.

on Leicester's penalty shout...
AI: Honestly, you're testing my memory, I can't remember! But it wasn't given so that's good luck on our side.

on Mesut Ozil's display...
SM: I don't have to tell you he's a good player, he has shown that for the past years and when you give him the opportunity to  play in his favourite position just behind the striker he is capable of doing anything and I think he showed he can assist, score goals and make us look very dangerous going forward.

on what 10 wins in a row says about the team...
AI: We're very confident, everyone is excited, not just in matches but in training everyone is together, the chemistry is good and you can see that in the matches as well.
