Arsenal fans think Alex Iwobi might be in trouble with Unai Emery in today’s match after ignoring a rule the Spaniard has put in place.
The Gunners boss had introduced a new set of dietary requirements at the start of the season as part of a major fitness shake-up.
Previously, Arsene Wenger had allowed players to enjoy carbohydrates as occasional treats and allowed fruit juice to be consumed in the training ground.
But according to The Mirror, Emery’s primary change when he arrived at the Emirates was to ban juices and have them replaced with water.

The former PSG boss also placed restrictions on the use of mobile phones during mealtimes.
But in-form midfielder Iwobi uploaded a video to his Instagram story, of him enjoying his lunch. And fans reckon he had a big glass of apple juice with his meal.
Taking to Reddit, one user posted the video alongside the caption: “Iwobi is testing Emery here.”
“That better be freshly pressed apple juice or he’s in trouble for disrespecting the boss,” one suggested.
But others were more forgiving.
Another added: “I prefer this form of rebellion than turning up late to training.”
A third claimed: “He’s earned that juice.” And a fourth suggested: “I think Emery has only banned ‘packaged’ apple juice because those items contain a lot of added sugar.”
So far this season, Iwobi has made six appearances in all competitions, scoring twice and getting two assists.
And he will likely get a chance to add to that tally today when Arsenal travels to Azerbaijan to face Qarabag in the Europa League.
