Arsene Wenger Explains Why Jack Wilshere Didn’t Replace Iwobi In Loss To Watford


Manager of Arsenal Arsene Wenger has revealed the reason why Jack Wilshere didn’t come on in place of Alex Iwobi in their 1-2 loss to Watford in the English Premier League.


Arsenal took a first half lead through Per Metesacker, but Watford drew level from the spot in the second half before a late goal in stoppage‎ time from Tom Cleverly condemned them to a 1-2 loss at Vicarage road.

Manager of Arsene Wenger was about to bring on Wilshere for Iwobi with scores at 1-1but later had a change in mind, which the manager told the official website of the club that a calf injury to Laurent Koscielny made him have a change of mind.


“I wanted to take Iwobi off and they told me that Koscielny had to come off because of his calf,” said the manager.

“When I wanted to bring Jack on for Iwobi, it was our last sub and Koscielny could not go on, so I had to change Koscielny and bring a centre back on. That’s what happened.”he explained.
