Iwobi will continue to frustrate and disappoint - he doesnt have it NT
He’s pretty much one of what currently seems like two clear options in that position as the attacking midfielder (behind James, who is the clear starter, assuming he stays with us).
I guess Gomes could be tried further forward - and personally I’d like to see Davies given a chance there - but Iwobi and Gray seem the most likely backup options, at the moment. And with James rarely playing much more than 60% of any season Iwobi may well get more of a chance in his preferred position.
Worth more of a look in the position he’s supposedly best in but has rarely been given the opportunity to show. I’d be concerned if James goes, tho.
Which I guess qualifies as a good game by his usual standards. Kean should have buried the header that stemmed from a move started by Iwobi.
I'd give first half MOTM to Townsend, second half to Gomes and PKs to Begovic, although all bar Gordon took their PKs well.
Not sure why people are again picking on Iwobi. Played first half left (has he played there before?), thought second half he was good until the substitution. Kean was poor, and I thought Allan and Doucoure also pretty poor. James was anonymous. Gomes added a lot of urgency after coming on and in case our passing was much quicker after the break which created some good attacks.
