‘Emirates was a party’ - Arsenal's ‘great’ Europa League start excites Alex Iwobi

The Nigeria international returned to the starting lineup after battling illness and showed no sign of slowing down as the Gunners secured victory

Alex Iwobi has hailed Arsenal’s ‘great’ start to their 2018-19 Uefa Europa League campaign after defeating Vorskla 4-2 in an Emirates atmosphere described by the midfielder as a ‘party’.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's 32nd-minute goal, off a brilliant assist from the 22-year-old, had the Unai Emery's men started.

Efforts from Danny Welbeck, Aubameyang and Mesut Ozil put the game beyond the visitors who managed to force a tense final moment with two late goals.

Iwobi, playing for the first time - since his goalscoring display against Chelsea in August - due to illness, took to the social media to hail his team's performance and also the Gunners faithful.

“Great to start the Europa League campaign with a win,” Iwobi tweeted.
