STATISTICS: ONLY TORREIRA HAS PLAYED MORE GAMES THAN IWOBI UNDER EMERY

Contrary to insinuations when Unai Emery took over from Arsene Wenger as Arsenal manager, Alex Iwobi is enjoying regular action under the Spaniard.

Only Lucas Torreira has played more matches than Iwobi under Emery reports naijasportsgrill.com.ng.

Iwobi has played in 38 matches so far while Torreira has featured in 39.

A breakdown shows Iwobi has featured in 26 EPL games, seven in Europa League, three in EFL and two in the FA Cup amassing 2,308 minutes. He scored five goals and seven assists.

Alex Iwobi celebrates his goal against Rennes in Europa league on Thursday.

After starting and scoring in Arsenal’s 1-3 loss to Rennes in the Europa Cup on Thursday, he will target his 39th game of the season when the Gunners engage Manchester United at the Emirates on Sunday.

It is equally worthy to note that the Nigerian international has played more matches than the team’s top scorers, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.

While Aubameyang and teen-sensation Matteo Guendouzi have featured in 37 matches, Lacazette has tasted action in 36.

Aaron Ramsey (33), Granit Xhaka (30), Skhodran Mustafi (30), Sokratis Papastathopoulos (29) and Henrik Mkhitaryan (27) complete the top 10.
