      Arsenal youngster Alex Iwobi has been compared to an Arsenal legend by former Tottenham player Garth Crooks.

      Iwobi, who struck in victory at Everton on Saturday, was likened to Arsenal legend Ian Wright.

      “Iwobi's week started in the Nou Camp and ended with his full Premier League debut and his first Premier League goal,” ex-Tottenham striker Crooks wrote on his BBC blog. “Not bad for a 19-year-old.

      “The link-up play between himself and Danny Welbeck was fabulous at times and there looks to be the beginning of a wonderful partnership.

      “What is even more remarkable is that it was only Iwobi's 14th game for Arsenal in all competitions.

      “To be showing that sort of confidence so early in your career speaks volumes for Arsene Wenger and his coaching staff.

      “I think I'm going to keep my eye on this kid.

      “Arsenal may have uncovered another Ian Wright.”
