Frustrated Iwobi: We didn’t take our chances


Alex Iwobi has expressed his frustration at Arsenal’s inability to take their chances in yesterday’s 3-1 defeat to Man United.

The Gunners shot themselves in the foot, gifting all three goals to the visitors, while at the same time creating plenty up the other end.

Lack of efficiency in front of goal and a brilliant display by David de Gea ensured that Jose Mourinho’s team left North London with all three points, and that was playing on the Nigerian international’s mind after the game.

“I’m very frustrated,” he said. “You could see the passion and the aggression we played with today but unfortunately it wasn’t to be and we just need to credit Manchester United.

“We were pushing to get the equaliser, had a few chances, but credit to their keeper, he made a few good saves.

“We didn’t take our chances and they capitalised on that and made it three, which basically killed the game.”
