Ex Chelsea Ace Explains Why Wenger Keeps On Picking Alex Iwobi Ahead Of Lucas Perez


Arsenal Spanish forward Lucaz Perez is reportedly unhappy over his lack of game time at Arsenal, where he is being made to play second fiddle to Nigerian teen Alex Iwobi.

Perez has been very effective for Arsenal in Cup games, with goals in the UEFA Champions League and the Emirate FA Cup, but he has found games hard to come by in the League and also in key games.

Arsene Wenger favours Alex Iwobi ahead of the Spaniard in key games, and according to former Chelsea left full back Celestine Babayaro, Iwobi best understands how Arsenal plays than the Spaniard.

” It’s simple to see why Iwobi is playing ahead of Perez. Iwobi plays the Arsenal way, which is running into space and playing others in but Perez is a Spanish breed, he wants the ball at his feet”, Babayaro told Owngoalnigeria.com.

” Perez has to change his style of play if he wants to be picked ahead of Iwobi. He has to adapt to the Arsenal way, attack the space behind the defenders and play others in quickly”.
