Iwobi plays down injury fears

Arsenal midfielder Alex Iwobi has played down injury fears and is hopeful he can regain full fitness for Thursday’s Europa League semi-final second-leg against Atletico Madrid.

The 21-year-old Nigeria international played 90 minutes during Arsenal’s 2-1 defeat at Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday but Wenger said after the match Iwobi was struggling with a hamstring injury.

“I believe it is very good. I am still being assessed but to me it is good and I will be okay,” Iwobi told Sky Sports.

“We will have to wait and see but I believe I will be okay and fit (for Atletico).”
