Alex Iwobi has highlighted one major change in Arsenal this season under Unai Emery when compared to Arsene Wenger’s final season at the club – more fight.

Speaking ahead of Arsenal’s game away at Watford where, thanks to Troy Deeney, everybody is talking about cojones, Alex Iwobi has delivered his view.

“There is a lot more fight in us this season,” Iwobi said.

“There is a lot more intensity.

“So, even though it’s been up and down this season, there are a lot more pros than maybe the previous one.”

It’s hard to argue with that assessment overall, even if Arsenal do still struggle on the road.

We’ve seen added bite in games against the likes of Tottenham, Liverpool, City, Chelsea and Manchester United, something that was sorely lacking in many of the same games under Wenger at the end.

Will it result in a return to Champions League football? Well, we don’t have long to wait to find out…
