Interview

Iwobi - I'm feeling so confident now

Alex Iwobi turned in another stellar performance in the win over Leicester, as he continued his fine start to the season.

After the game the Nigeria international spoke to Arsenal Media about the game and his own form so far this term.

This is what he said:
 
on what was said at half-time…
The fact we were able to get the equalising goal gave us the confidence and the manager basically said for us to just keep on going. We showed the fighting spirit to keep on going in the second half. We had the opportunity to score goals, not just the three we did, but we were able to get more as well - we looked very dangerous going forward. We have to continue doing that with the big games we have got coming up as well.
 
on why we are a second-half team…
I don't know why that is, but at least we weren't going in at half-time losing. As I said, we got that equalising goal so we had that momentum as well.

 
on the third goal…
I was just trying to keep up with it! I was trying to be involved and create movement. But some of the play, not just from Mesut, but from Hector and Aubameyang as well. It was great for us, and it's good that we have that mentality that even though Auba was on the bench, he was able to make the difference today.
 
on his own form…
Yeah, it's going well, I'm very confident now. The manager is always being very positive to me, he's always telling me to keep on going even if I make a mistake. That's what I'm showing, and also proving to myself that I can put in 100 per cent throughout the game, and that's why I'm shattered right now! Yeah, that's basically what he's been telling me.
 
on 10 wins in a row…
It's good, let's try and make it 11. That's what we want to do, and I'm sure the fans do too. We can't just dwell on it, let's keep on going and better ourselves.
