'I don't even know if Alexis saw me!'

No one played better against Brighton & Hove Albion than Alex Iwobi.

The Nigeria international put the seal on our 2-0 win with a powerful finish at the end of a classic team move, and he spoke to us straight after the game.

Here's what Alex said:

on the result…

Yes, we’ve been doing well, it’s been nice to win again and keep the momentum going and everyone’s confident. Also to get a clean sheet is an extra bonus for the team.

on our good form…

Obviously we had a heavy defeat against Liverpool, but ever since then we’ve reacted  well, we’re going on strong and yes everyone’s just proving to the Premier League, to the teams, to everyone around, that we’re able to contend for the title.

on Alexis and Lacazette…

To have such world class players in the team, they bring a lot to the team and they’re always going to create chances, always going to create goals. For those two to play with each other is just an extra, it’s special for us.

on his goal…

Well I don’t know if Alexis saw me, but if he did and he meant that, that was a special pass, like I didn’t know he was going to see me and find me. I’m just grateful for the opportunity, I just got my head down and had a shot and luckily for me it went in.

on his performance…

Well the thing with me, when I get an opportunity I just give 100 per cent. Obviously we’ve got a lot of great players in the team so I’ve had to be patient and I’m still young, but whenever I get the opportunity I always give my best and like today I was able to do that.

on challenging for the title…

Yes we’re always up for the challenge, we just have to be consistent, which is the key thing in the league. It’s no sprint, it’s a marathon, so we just have to keep on going and see where we end up.
