Arsenal midfielder Iwobi: Wenger wants me to improve this...

Arsenal midfielder Alex Iwobi admits manager Arsene Wenger is demanding he improve the defensive side of his game.

Although the Nigeria international has yet to find the net he has provided three assists and was given the man of the match award, as well as being talked up extensively by the pundits, after the Gunners' demolition of Chelsea.

"At the moment, because I'm not really the best at defending, [Wenger] says I need to treat it how I treat attacking," Iwobi told Newsbeat .

"And that's something that's really rung true with me. I love attacking, but I hate defending and it's something I need to add to my game."
