Alex Iwobi played a vital part in securing Arsenal's 4-1 Premier League victory at Hull City on Saturday afternoon - read on for what the manager made of his performance.
More from the Hull City game:
I started him last year because I've seen that there's something in him that is quality of vision, quality of give and go, of movement. He can break the lines with a pass and individually as well, so there's a lot in the locker. Overall, he's only 20 years old so you could see that he has gained in confidence now. He can take people on much more and he has gained power as well. It's interesting what he has done.
on Theo Walcott…
He's getting slowly there. He is not completely ready physically but today I felt in the second half he was much better than the first. He has interesting qualities for us. He goes behind, many players like to come to the ball and he's one of the players who is very dangerous for the quality of his runs and his receptions. I think today in the first half he was influential on the ball. He scored one as well, so he's efficient and that's what you want.
on having faith in Theo…
Yes, because I look at the overall balance of the team. As I told you, we need players who go behind the defenders and he can do that well. When Sanchez plays up front, he likes to come to the ball. To have someone who goes behind at the same moment helps us to have many options.
