Manager of Arsenal Arsene Wenger says Alexis Sanchez and Alex Iwobi are both claiming the first goal scored by Arsenal in their 4-1 win over Hull City.

Both players celebrated the goal at different intervals after it was scored, with Iwobi peeling away in one direction in celebration , while Sanchez went the other way celebrating the goal.

The goal was initially given to Iwobi but it was later changed to Sanchez, who stuck a foot out when Iwobi lashed home a left foot effort inside the Hull City box.

Wenger revealed in his post match conference that both players are refusing to let go as they both wants credit for the goal during his chat with them after the game.

“Alexis claims the goal! He said to me he touched. I thought it was Iwobi but we’ll see.” Wenger said.
