Pedro Rodriguez and Alvaro Morata put the hosts in front in the first 20 minutes of the meeting.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan reduced his side's deficit in the 37th minute after which Iwobi leveled parity for the visitors in the 41st encounter.

Iwobi said after the match that: "We started shaky, I don’t know, maybe we didn’t know what to do.

"But we picked ourselves up and got going. Unfortunately we weren’t able to take all our chances."

The Nigeria international, who graduated from Arsenal academy however said that they are prepared to work their socks off to impress new boss Unai Emery.

The former Sevilla coach has yet to win a game after two losses, following their defeat to Manchester City last week.

On Emery’s half-time team talk he said: "We were on a high. The message was to keep it going, keep our head and don’t lose ourselves. We fought hard for him.

"We enjoy training, everyone is buying into his ideas. It all takes time, a new manager, a new system and the fans and players know that."

NAIJ.com previously reported that Arsenal are reportedly ready to cash in on Super Eagles winger Alex Iwobi this summer.

Daily Star citing sources in Italy, the Emirates dwellers are willing to sell Alex Iwobi for £22.3m (€25m) as new suitors from the Serie A are in need of the Nigerian international.

Italy’s Il Messaggero reports, Iwobi is attracting a potential deal from Lazio, who are eager to replace Felipe Anderson who recently joined West Ham.
