Nigeria’s Alex Iwobi played for 71 minutes as Arsenal drew 0-0 with relegation struggler, Sunderland at the Stadium of Light in Sunday’s Premier League game.

Iwobi who has become a regular starter on the Gunners squad had an impressive game as he made some brilliant passes which were not utilized by his teammates.

He was later substituted in the 71st minute for Theo Walcott as they searched for the goal that could guarantee their Champions League spot next season.

The draw means Arsenal are five points ahead of close rival Manchester United who could reduce the point differential to two points if they win their next game.
