Alex Iwobi Outshines Ighalo As Watford goes Down



Nigeria youngster Alex Iwobi outshone fellow Super Eagles star Odion Ighalo after he scored in Arsenal 4-0 win to further endanger Watford’s survival hopes in the Premier League.
Arsenal put on a show. They toyed with Watford. They humiliated them. They passed and they passed and they passed. They let Watford chase shadows and drove them to distraction. They played as if they were in the fun bit at the end of a training session. Which, in some ways, they are.
At the centre of it all was Nigerian international, Alex Iwobi, whose appearance for Nigeria was limited after he recovered from food poisoning on international duty last week, struck after 38 minutes courtesy of an assist by Alexis Sanchez, who laid the ball into the path of the youngster who only had to slide home from inside the box.
It was the 19-year-old midfielder’s second goal in the Premier League.
The impressive Iwobi was later substituted in the 74th minute.
Ighalo, on the other hand, was replaced after 46 minutes when he failed to add to his 15-goal tally. Ighalo had a torrid time throughout the period he stayed on the pitch.
