Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi is thrilled to have marked his return to the Premier League with a 2-0 victory over Sunderland on Tuesday night.

Iwobi who has now recorded 25 league appearances with three goals for the Arsene Wenger’s side this season, came close to increasing the Gunners’ lead with a sublime shot in 83rd minute but was kept out by Sunderland’s Jordan Pickford.

The elated Nigeria international took to Instagram to express his excitement after Alexis Sanchez’s brace ensured Arsenal's fight for Champions League spot stay alive.

"Back Doing What I Love #AFC," Iwobi wrote on Instagram.
