Alex Iwobi returns against Lincoln City

by on March 10, 2017

Super Eagles forward, Alex Iwo­bi is set to make a return to the Arsenal starting line-up when the Gunners host non- league side, Lincoln City in a quarter-finals game of the FA Cup at the Emir­ates stadium on Saturday.

Iwobi, who has played in 34 matches for the North London side in all competitions so far this sea­son, was excluded in the Gunners’ squad that suffered yet another 5-1 humiliation in the hands of Ger­man side, Bayern Munich in Tues­day’s UEFA Champions’ League round of 16 reverse match at the Emirates Stadium.

The 20 years old form has dropped in recent time and it be­came very obvious in Saturday’s EPL 3-1defeat at Liverpool, lead­ing to call by some frustrated fans of the club that he be dropped from the starting line-up for more enter­prising and experience players.

But knowing Arsene Wenger’s attitude and approach towards the Emirates FA Cup where he has al­ways played a mixture of experi­ence and youths, Iwobi, one of his most preferred forwards so far this season is favoured to get the nod to face Lincoln City.
