EPL: Iwobi’s Arsenal suffers defeat
By Sampson Adedeji
The poor form of the English Premier League side Arsenal continued on Saturday as they suffered 1-0 defeat to their London rival West Ham United.
Nigeria’s Super Eagles midfielder Alex Iwobi was in action throughout the duration of the match and was by far the Gunners best player in the encounter.
After a goalless first half, Declan Rice scored the only goal of the game in the 48th minutes of the game and all the effort of Arsenal to bounce back proved futile.
The loss ensured Arsenal failed to keep on pressure on 4th spot, the has 41 points in 22 matches and presently placed 5th.
A win for Manchester United in Sunday’s match against Tottenham Hotspur will drop Arsenal to 6th position on the table.
