Iwobi admits Arsenal players ‘are working harder’ under Emery

Arsenal midfielder Alex Iwobi has revealed that he and his teammates are now working harder under new Gunners boss Unai Emery then they did during the Arsene Wenger era.

The Gunners got their season off to a difficult start by losing both their opening Premier League games to Manchester City and Chelsea, although they have now won four games on the spin, with their latest victory a 4-2 Europa League victory over Ukrainian side Vorskla Poltava at the Emirates last night.

Nigeria international Iwobi admitted after last nights win that the Arsenal squad are fully committed to taking their new coaches ideas on board.

“He’s a new manager, a new system,” Iwobi told ESPN.

“Like I said, we are buying in to new ideas so it will take a bit of time but we’re slowly getting there.

“Obviously we are winning games now, we just have to keep being consistent and keep on pushing.”

“He demands a lot, we are working a lot harder in training, running a bit more. But as you can see, we are buying into his ideas and we are enjoying our time with him.

“We are not going to dwell on the past, we are always looking forward to the next game.

“We learn from our mistakes, like we have done.

“We have got four wins on the bounce now so we have just got to keep on going keep this momentum going and try to get as many wins as we can, like I’m saying.”
