'It’s a hard result to take having been ahead'

Alex Iwobi

Alex iwobi was a frustrated figure after our 2-2 draw with Manchester United on Wednesday night.

The Nigeria international felt that we did enough to win the game, and this is what he told the media:

on the game…
We knew it was going to be a difficult game because Old Trafford is always a tough place to come. I guess it’s a hard one to take because we were ahead twice. Both teams fought hard, though, so I guess a draw is a fair result for both teams.
 
on what we could have done to get a better result…
Maybe it’s just a mental thing of staying focused. We got a bit excited and tried to rush forward where we shouldn’t have. Maybe it’s about just making sure we settle things down a bit.
 
on the fans singing ‘We’ve got our Arsenal back’…
Twenty games unbeaten says it all. The fans can see that we’re back to our best and you can see that too on the pitch. Every team is playing well this season so it’s going to be tough, but we’ll just keep going. We can only focus on our own performances.
 
on 20 games unbeaten…
We’re very happy with how we’re playing and everyone’s confident. Our manager is always trying to improve things, so we’re never settling. We’re just trying to get better game by game.
 
on how much more is to come…
There’s just the small details that everyone can improve on. We’ll go back into training and prepare for Saturday now.
