(Video) Arsenal Youngster Alex Iwobi Skillfully Evading A 3-Man Press During Basel Win

Arsenal beat Basel 2-0 on match-day 2 of the Champions League, to go top of their difficult group. And One of the stars on the night was Alex Iwobi.

The young Nigerian has seen a meteoric rise into the team, having made his senior debut in the League Cup last season.

Iwobi’s playing style has been likened to a “combination of Jay-Jay Okocha and Edgar Davids”, by none other than his teammate Mesut Ozil. This comes as no surprise as Okocha is Iwobi’s uncle.

Their similarity in style is evident in the youngster’s skills and tricks, particularly his dribbles. In the match against Basel, he produced yet another magical moment, when he evaded a three-man press in a flash, by turning and changing the ball from one foot to the other in a slick movement.
