Iwobi must continue to improve – Emery

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has challenged Alex Iwobi to continue developing after an impressive performance on Saturday.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has challenged Alex Iwobi to continue developing after an impressive performance on Saturday.

Emery turned to Iwobi to deputise for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at Huddersfield on Saturday and the winger made full use of his opportunity. Iwobi netted the opening goal in the 2-1 victory, his third of the season in the Premier League, and Emery was pleased with his exploits. However, the Spaniard believes Iwobi still has further room for improvement and has urged the 22-year-old to keep working hard. ‘He’s young, makes a big commitment and he has good physical condition,’ Emery said. ‘He needs to improve something tactically, maybe, but above all he’s calm with the ball in the attacking third [in order] to find better assists, finding the possibility to score with composure, or find the best option, whether that is shooting or dribbling. ‘He scored [on Saturday], got another very good chance and the possibility to assist [Alexandre] Lacazette, but I think his match – first starting with his attitude – was very big, and his performance was very good.’
