Ahead of the launch of FIFA17, Alex Iwobi sat down with The Football Republic to play the game and have a little chat.

Impressing more and more with every game, Iwobi has not only grabbed his chance since being thrust into the first team, he’s stuffed it in his pocket and isn’t giving it back.

Shining against Chelsea and then again against Basel, the Arsenal man revealed who the hardest player is at the club (hint – it’s not Granit Xhaka) as well as who is the best at the club at playing FIFA and a load of other things.

He also highlights that FIFA got his pace wrong because, as he says himself, “I’m actually not that quick.”
