Alex Iwobi has revealed how he has been able to sustain his place in the Arsenal team despite intense competition.

The 20-year-old broke into Arsene Wenger’s side last season, and has since gone on to become an integral part of the north London side this season, featuring in nine of the team’s 11 English Premier League games.

The Nigeria international said he understands the sort of commitment he has to put into his game in order to keep getting into the manager’s plan, especially in a team with good amount of world class players.

“Honestly I didn’t expect to be where I am today,” Iwobi told Arsenal Player.

“I thought a long time ago that I’d be on loan and probably get experience there before having experience in the first team, but the fact that the boss trusted me to jump into the first team as quick as I did, I’m just grateful for it.

“The same way I was able to break into it is the same way that I take the chance now.

“I play like it’s almost like my last game, I treat it like it’s my last moment here, so I do my best and I always put 100 per cent into whatever I do.”

“If you don’t do as well as you think you could’ve done, there’s other players, other international, great players, that can just step in,” he continued.

“So you just have to take the chance all the time and do your best when the time comes.

“The big thing is you need to stay fit and always need to give it your all. I mean, you’ve got to have the right attitude, you’ve got to be mentally prepared for whatever happens.

“Not everything is going to be smooth sailing for you so you’ve got to be prepared for all conditions.”
