Arsenal Nigerian forward Alex Iwobi is fine despite the nasty tackle he suffered against Sutton United in the 2-0 win on Monday in the Emirate FA Cup.
The 20 year old caused a stir when he posted a picture of his leg wrapped in bandage on snapchat after the game against Sutton, which was played on a pitch he is not used to.
However the incident that lead to fears over his availability for Arsenal’s next game came in the 33rd minute when he was at the receiving end of a heavy tackle from a Sutton defender.
An Arsenal source told ESPN that the forward didn’t suffer much damage and should be fit for Arsenal’s game against Liverpool on Saturday the 4th of March 2017.
An update on the extent of the damage he suffered from the horror tackle will be provided by manager Arsene Wenger during his next pre conference.
