Nigeria’s Iwobi On Target As Arsenal Beat Watford 4-0

Nigerian youngster Alex Iwobi was on target in the English Premier League on Saturday as he scored for Arsenal in their 4-0 victory against Watford.

Iwobi forced Heurelho Gomes into a stunning save and soon doubled Gunners’ advantage by sweeping in from 12 yards to finish off a superb team move.

Iwobi’s goal went in on 38 minutes after the Gunners led inside four minutes with Alexis Sanchez slotting in from close range and controlled the first half.

Hector Bellerin’s shot deflected in for Arsenal’s third, while substitute Theo Walcott completed the rout late on.

Arsenal had lost three straight home games in all competitions going into the match, but this was a routine win as they closed the gap to leaders Leicester to eight points.

Arsene Wenger’s side still need an unlikely collapse from both the Foxes and second-placed Tottenham to have any hope of securing the league title, while tough trips to West Ham and Manchester City await in their remaining seven games.
