Arsenal youngster, Alex Iwobi, is among the players who had a very impressive 2016. The Nigerian international was in fine form, getting more game time and earning himself a new deal at the Emirates.
Iwobi was on target on Sunday in the 56th minute at the Emirates stadium as his goal helped seal a 2-0 win for the Gunner.
He told the club’s official website: “It was a great feeling. It was a bit unorthodox but a goal’s a goal and I’m happy to start 2017 with a goal,”
“Playing against Barcelona and scoring Premier League goals – there were some special moments in 2016. But it’s all in the past now.
“I’m concentrating on the future and being the best that I can.
“We’ll just have to focus on our next game, take it as it comes. Hopefully we’ll see what happens at the end of the season.
