Arsenal boss, Unai Emery, has hailed Nigeria international, Alex Iwobi, after their 1-1 draw with Liverpool on Saturday.

The Spaniard praised Iwobi for his superb impact off the bench against Liverpool but urged the winger to keep improving.

Iwobi started from the bench with Henrikh Mkhitaryan preferred on the right wing.

The Nigerian, however, came off the bench and set up Alexandre Lacazette’s equaliser with a brilliant pass.

It was his third Premier League assist of the season.

“We need every player and the characteristic each player has is important, and Iwobi he can impact hard in the match after starting in the bench,” Emery told BT Sport.

“Today, for us I think he would have started on the right, but he’s better left. This impact in some moment in the match, like for the goal, I think is important.

“His energy is also important, his quality, but he can improve, he can do better also because he scored against Chelsea and I want him to be more near the box to have chances to score more. And he can.

“I think he’s very young, and he’s improving, but the ambition because he can do more.”
