“I believe that we have two uncertainties,” Wenger told Arsenal.com before yesterday’s game. Welbeck, who had to come off after the warm-up against Bayern due to sickness and Iwobi who on the day of the game couldn’t turn up as well due to the same problem.”

Iwobi, has played 22 English Premier League games for Arsenal this season, has been included in the Nigerian squad that will play two international friendly games later this month. The Super Eagles will take on Senegal on Thursday, 23 March, before locking horns with Burkina Faso on Monday, 27 March.
