Arsenal youngster, Alex Iwobi, says the reason for his recent impressive performance for The Gunners is due to the help offered by his team mates especially Danny Welbeck.

The starlet has broken into the first team for Arsenal and has scored goals when given the chance after impressing in the youth team. Since making the first team, he has impressed keeping the likes of Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott out of the team.

Most surprising has been the quick transition to first team football, with the youngster having looked settled from the get goes unlike other starlets that take time when given the chance. The player insists Enbglish player, Welbeck is responsible since taking him under his wing and helping him feel comfortable.

“Danny Welbeck has taken me under his wing.

“He’s been helping me a lot because he is a young English player that came through at Manchester United, so he knows what it’s like.

“He came through at a young age so he is always helping me or having banter with me and making me feel comfortable. I think it is key [to feel comfortable] and they have all welcomed me,” the player told

Welbeck joined Arsenal in 2014 from The Red Devils for almost 13 million Pounds. The 25-year old centre forward has had a rough season with Arsenal due to the number of injuries that has sidelined him this season. The striker has only played nine games this season and has netted just three goals.

In the UEFA Champions League, the striker was injured in most parts. He played just two games in the string of matches against the Catalan giant, Barcelona, where they were knocked out. He did not score any goal in the Champions League this season.
