Arsenal Forward Takes To Social Media To Apologise For Poor Performance Against PSG

Arsenal came away from the Parc des Princes on Tuesday night having earned a 1-1 draw with Paris Saint-Germain in their opening Champions League fixture.

The Gunners must have feared the worst when they conceded in the very first minute courtesy of an Edinson Cavani header, and had to withstand a barrage later on the half as PSG went in search of a second.

However, Arsenal had an especially wasteful Cavani and on-form David Ospina – surprisingly chosen ahead of regular number one Petr Cech for the match – to thank for keeping them in the tie, and equalised in the 78th minute through Alexis Sánchez.

Indeed, Arsenal could have stolen the win late on as Alex Iwobi had an effort saved by PSG keeper Alphonse Areola, and the 19-year-old has taken to social media personally to apologise for not being more prolific.

First taking to Snapchat, the 19-year-old lamented two missed chances that could have given his side the win…

On his Twitter account, Iwobi stated that he was glad to get the point in what was a tough game for the away team, but again expressed his disappointment at not being able to get the winner…

Iwobi was starting his first game since the opening day Premier League defeat to Liverpool – his less than stellar display can therefore surely be put down to rustiness.

That said, he was far from the worst player on the pitch tonight.
