Alex Iwobi had a strong first half against Manchester City on Sunday, getting the better of Pablo Zabaleta before fading in the second half.
The Nigeria international was interviewed after our 2-1 defeat. This is what he said:
- Cech - The moment the game changed
- 'We've had an absolutely horrible week'
- 'They caught us cold in the second half'
- Read the match report from the Etihad Stadium
on whether we can still close the gap…Yeah, we’re gonna keep on going, fight until the end and see where we go. We’ll just have to continue how we were playing at the start of the season.
on what happened in the second half…I guess you could say we took our foot off the gas. Man City took advantage very well in the second half. We were up against a tough side today, we were just unfortunate to not keep the win.
on losing concentration…We started off very well but we weren’t able to keep it up in the second half and we were very unfortunate.
on what happens next…We just have to continue the way we were playing at the start of the season. We just have to get that back and kick on now and prepare well for the next game.
