Manager of Arsenal Arsene Wenger has reacted to his team’s 2-0 win over Reading in the English Football League cup, particularly on the perfromances of some first team players.
Two well taken goals from Alex Oxlade Chamberlain was all the Gunners needed to see off Reading at the Emirates to secure progression to the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup.
Wenger who fielded a much changed squad, filled with fringe and young players picked from the academy of the club, was full of praises for goal scorer Chamberlain, goalkeeper Damian Martinez and Alex Iwobi.
Wenger on Oxlade-Chamberlain: “The quality of his concentration is sharper and more determined. He’s worked a lot and it comes out everyday”
Wenger on Martinez: “We have 3 top class GKs & as long as we’re in this competition he knows he gets this game & has something to focus on”
Wenger on Iwobi: “What we want from him now is the finishing. He’s too nervous at the moment when he has the possibility to finish.”
