Alex Iwobi lived up to his promise of improving upfront for his team as Arsenal brushed aside Huddersfield 2-1 in a Premier League game at the John Smith’s stadium on Saturday evening.
Iwobi got his team into the lead after 15 minutes when he volleyed past Ben Hamer after teammate Sead Kolasinac have picked him out at the far post, the ball taking a huge deflection off Terence Kongolo on its way in.
The Nigerian had another chance to add further gloss to the scoreline in the second half but saw his shot parried to safety by Hamer following a swift Arsenal breakaway.
He was replaced by Joe Willock in the 88th minute after a very instrumental display.
At Anfield, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah scored to help Liverpool regain top spot with a 3-0 victory over Bournemouth.
