Alex Iwobi trains with Arsenal first team ahead Man City clash

21 December 2015, 20:03

London - Alex Iwobi practiced with Arsenal's first team player in their final training session before their Premier League clash against Manchester City at The Emirates on Monday night.

The Nigeria international was one of the five youngsters drafted into the main team from the youth squad on Sunday, suggesting that his involvement against the Citizens cannot be entirely ruled out.

That said, the Arsenal U21s tackle their Aston Villa counterparts in the U21 Premier League Division 2 seven hours before the big game against Manchester City, meaning Iwobi is unlikely to feature for the first team if he is given game time against the Lions.

The 19-year-old has had limited playing opportunities for Arsenal this season, so much so that his advisers have strongly hinted that he may be loaned out to a Championship club in the January transfer window if the situation does not improve.

Having made his Premier League debut in the 3-0 win over Swansea City at the end of October, he made the bench the following week against Spurs and has been ignored by manager Arsene Wenger in the last four games in the top - flight.

The teenager has been prominent for the Arsenal U21s, scoring two goals (two assists) in eight appearances and has notched two goals in the UEFA Youth League so far.
