Alex Iwobi would be heaving a huge sigh of relief after he produced a sublime pass to put Hector Bellerin through on goal in the match against Bournemouth.
Arsenal struggled badly in the first half and the struggle continued into the second half as they missed the decisive Ozil and Sanchez- the latter expecting his imminent transfer away from Arsenal.
The gunners needed a moment of brilliance to get going and Alex Iwobi provided the moment in the 52nd minute as he threaded a through-ball to Bellerin who finished off the move.

Iwobi has been in the news of late for all the wrong reasons. He has seen a serious deep in form and was caught on camera partying few hours to a game.
His assist however drew praise from fans on social media. See some of the comments below
Get in there! Great pass from Iwobi and Bellerin with the run and somewhat fortunate finish. Hope it gives him some confidence. Good football in the build up 👌🏻

If Özil played that Iwobi pass then we would all be raving. Well done to him, that was excellent.

Bellerin of all people. Had arguably been Arsenal’s worst player until now. Great ball from Iwobi.

Iwobi with a class ball to put Bellerín in, nice that he’s turned up finally.
