Super Eagles and Arsenal forward Alex Iwobi has been voted the Man of the Match during Saturday’s emphatic victory over Watford in a poll conducted by the club on its official twitter account.
The 19-year old Nigerian who scored and claimed an assists on Saturday was voted ahead of Chilean star Alexi Sanchez and Spanish star Hector Bellerin who were also on the Arsenal v Watford score sheet.

Iwobi was the star of the show as Arsenal kept the pressure on in the title race with a swaggering performance to beat Watford.
The Nigeria international was in electric form all afternoon, and took just four minutes to set up the opening goal as he picked out Alexis with a curling cross.
Iwobi then went close with a curling strike, before being involved in the move that saw Danny Welbeck fire just wide of the near post.
Having scored his first senior goal for the Gunners just before the international break, Iwobi doubled his tally just before the break when he finished off a slick move involving Francis Coquelin and Mesut Ozil.
Hector Bellerin added a third when his deflected strike beat Heurelho Gomes, before Iwobi cannoned a shot off the crossbar moments later.
