Alex Iwobi has revealed why the team spirit at Arsenal seems to be so much better now than it was at times last season (via Arsenal.com).
Things are going brilliantly for Arsenal on the pitch as the Gunners made it nine consecutive wins in all competitions on Sunday.
The Gunners players seem to be enjoying their football at the moment in what seems like a very happy dressing room.
Now Alex Iwobi, one of the players who has improved immensely this term, has explained why he thinks things are so much better at the Emirates now.
“The team spirit is better. The confidence is definitely better,” Iwobi said after the match.
“We analyse the games a bit more and we’re proving to the fans as well as ourselves that we’re able to compete for the title.”

Iwobi was asked about what has improved for him personally.
“The manager has given me a lot of confidence, telling me that when I get the ball to just be positive,” the Nigerian international went on.
“Whenever I am called upon to play, I always try to give my best and make sure that I can impose myself on the game.”
Alex Iwobi has had a remarkable return to form and it falls in line with that of the rest of the Arsenal squad. It looks like a happy dressing room at Arsenal right now and let’s hope that can continue.
