Am Enjoying The Moment - Iwobi

Arsenal Alex Iwobi turned in a man of the match display on his first Premier League start for Arsenal and achieved a rare feat in the process. The nephew of Jay-Jay Okocha has caught the eye mainly in cup competitions this season but took his chance to impress in the Premier League against Everton on Saturday and scored his first senior goal in the process.

Only nine other players have managed to score on their maiden Premier League starts for Arsenal since Wenger took over at the club almost 20 years ago.

Iwobi, 19, now sits in esteemed company alongside the likes of Emmanuel Adebayor, Samir Nasri and Thomas Vermaelen, as well as Joel Campbell who scored on his first Premier League start for the club against Swansea back in October.

Speaking after scoring his first goal for Arsenal, against Everton on Saturday:

on his first goal…
"It is not bad, I’m enjoying the moment. I’m just happy to help my team and that is a positive so we will take that into the next game."

on his partnership with Welbeck…

"It is a dream playing with him. He gives me confidence, he is helping me out and gives me advice."

on the buzz in the squad…
"It works, we are all confident in training. Even though we have had a difficult week, we are trying to put that aside and concentate on the league."
