Iwobi explains why Arsenal lost to Man United

Alex Iwobi has revealed his frustration at Arsenal’s defeat to Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday, and believes David De Gea was the reason for the defeat.

The Gunners were beaten 3-1 by the Red Devils at the Emirates on Saturday, with Iwobi coming off the bench in the first half after Skhodran Mustafi suffered an injury, but couldn’t do much to help his side to a win.

Two first half goals from Antonio Valencia and Jesse Lingard put Arsenal behind early on, but they fought back to score one shortly after the restart through Alexander Lacazette, and despite their dominance which saw them take 33 shots at goal, they succumbed to another Lingard goal to seal the win for United and iwobi has not been able to hide his frustration.

“I’m very frustrated. You could see the passion and the aggression we played with today but unfortunately it wasn’t to be and we just need to credit Manchester United,” Iwobi told the club website.

“We were pushing to get the equaliser, had a few chances, but credit to their keeper, he made a few good saves.

“We didn’t take our chances and they capitalised on that and made it three, which basically killed the game.”

Iwobi has scored only once in eight appearances for Arsenal in the Premier League this season.

And this was the Gunners’ fifth loss of the campaign which sees them drop to fifth in the standings.
