The gunners welcomed Watford at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday and the North Londoners struggled against the Hornets until Unai Emery introduced in Alex Iwobi, replacing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the second half of the match.
The Nigerian midfielder changed the game and added more flair to the Arsenal attack, and they got two goals in just three minutes.
Alex Iwobi has revealed what has contributed to improvement in his form as reported by the Daily Star.
I am more positive and more confident with the ball.
The boss has basically told me that if something doesn’t work, just keep going and don’t dwell on it, said Alex Iwobi.
He’s told me to stop being so critical and to just keep trying no matter what happens, no matter if things don’t go as I want them to.
That’s given me a lot more confidence to try a few more things, like beat a player, to shoot more. I’m always ready to get on the ball a bit more, so I guess it’s helped in that sense.
