Arsenal all time top scorer Thierry Henry has defended the performance of Nigerian forward Alex Iwobi following Arsenal 2-2 draw against PSG.

Iwobi scored an unfortunate own goal,although it was credited to Lucas Moura but it was Iwobi’s weak header that deflected the ball past David Ospina in Arsenal’s goal.

Despite the disappointment, Henry says while Arsenal struggled to get a grip on the game in the first half, the 20 year old was the only player, who looked confident in an Arsenal shirt.

” It was a very flat first half from Arsenal, so many under hit passes and failed dribbles. Only Iwobi played like an Arsenal player”, he said during the half time break with scores at 1-1.

The full time result of 2-2 puts PSG on top of the group ahead of Arsenal even though both teams are on same points, the French side are top based on the away goal rule.
