Arsenal forward Alex Iwobi says the Gunners are a family fighting to help each other and not just the coach.

The North Londoners are unbeaten in 14 games(12wins, 2draws) including last weekend’s draw against Liverpool at the Emirates stadium.

Iwobi has delivered impressive performances in that period, assisting his teammates four times already this season.

The 22-year-old started on the bench against Liverpool but it was his pass Lacazette converted for Arsenal’s late equalizer.

Speaking to the club’s official website on the bond between the players, fans and the staff, he said:

“It’s basically a family and we’re all fighting for each other, not just for the manager and the players, but also for the fans.

“It’s one big family and we’re always going to fight for each other. We’re putting in an extra shift, not just in matches, but in training as well.

The Nigerian international player also talked about the boss and how he’s transmitting his idea to him and team-mates.

“Unai is very intense in training and he’s demanding because he knows how good we are. He always wants us to be at 100 percent, giving our best.

“It’s not just him, though. We know what we expect from each other, so we’re also trying to get the best out of each other in training.

“He’s always encouraging me to be positive with the ball. Always encouraging me to work hard off the ball for my team as well.

“It’s not just for me, he’s helped out my other team-mates as well and has helped every player individually.

“He’s always talking to them and if it’s not him then it’s his assistants, the other coaches talking to me. Showing me different clips, analysing my game, analysing opponents as well.

“His staff are always helping me. He’s given me that confidence in games and in training to go out and express myself.”
