Arsenal whiz Alex Iwobi: I thought it was my goal!

Alex Iwobi accepts Alexis Sanchez will claim his goal in Arsenal's rout of Hull City.

Iwobi appeared to strike the opener for the Gunners, only for it to be given to Alexis thanks to a faint touch.

"I honestly thought I'd scored, but he kept on saying 'I got a touch, I got a touch!' Please, let it be my goal! At the end of the day, we won, so that's all that matters," Iwobi told arsenal.com.

"It gives me confidence in every game I play, I'm excited, I can't wait to play and can't wait to get minutes on the pitch. I'm also enjoying my football which is what matters to me."

On Alexis and Theo Walcott, he added: "They're such quality players. When I train with them I'm always learning and I'm still learning. I'm still young, I guess the more I play the more I'll mature on the pitch. Playing with them helps me."
