Alex Iwobi has voiced his frustration with the weekend’s loss to Manchester United considering his side’s performance.
The Gunners lost to the Red Devils on Saturday evening no thanks to early mistakes which saw our side fall 2-0 down inside 11 minutes.
The rest of the match ended equal in goal return, but the game was very much one sided, with our boys nothing up over 30 shots, and David De Gea clocking up a whopping 14 saves.
Alex Iwobi has now declared his thoughts on the result, crediting Man United for being so clinical with their few chances on goal.
“I’m very frustrated. 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,” Iwobi said.
“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.”
The Red Devils walked away with all three points, which feels unfair when considering the display and performance that our boys put in, and had any other goalkeeper in the world been between the sticks, you would have to think that we would have at least levelled the game.
It’s going to be a tough few days getting over the match, and Thursday’s Europa League dead rubber with Bate Borisov will only prove to be a slight distraction no matter what the result.
Should we consider ourselves unlucky or were Man United simply more clinical in front of goal?
