Alex Iwobi suffered an hamstring injury during Sunday’s game between Manchester United and Arsenal.

Iwobi was on for the entire duration of the match which was also Arsene Wenger’s last game at Old Trafford.

Outgoing Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger confirmed the injury to the 21-year-old Super Eagles forward during a press conference after the match.

Wenger said in his post-match conference that Iwobi and some other Arsenal’s players are major doubts for their crucial Europa League clash in Spain.

“I took off Mkhitaryan because he had a little knock on his knee again, on the same knee – we could see that just looking at him in the dressing room,”

 “Ospina has a rib problem and Alex Iwobi has a hamstring problem, so we’ll see how well everyone recovers. Thursday will come very quickly,” Wenger said.

“Definitely? At the moment, no, but we’ll have to monitor them over the next 48 hours. We’ll know more on Tuesday,” Wenger added.

Super Eagles forward has added to Gernot Rohr’s worries after suffering a hamstring injury in Sunday’s premier league clash against Manchester United.

Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi  had eailer picked up an injury in a Premier League clash against Crystal Palace last weekend.
