Arsenal boss Unai Emery is delighted with the way Alex Iwobi has responded to his management.
The Nigeria international is in career best form this season.
Emery said: “He is very young and I think he played here with improving moments in his career. We need to also push him more to improve because he has the quality and the capacity. The first thing is with the behaviour in training, finding ways to improve every day. And then, also to give him what he can improve tactically, individually.
“I think a lot of it is confidence, every player needs confidence. Not only with playing but when we are together and we are here. I want every player to feel this confidence but also with a very big demand from us and on himself also to work every day.
“It’s try, try, try and try. If you are doing a good action individually or not, continue with the confidence to try another, to try again. After that, good commitment every day, good behaviour every day and feel together with your team and respect decisions and respect your teammates.
“There is only one thing I know, work. You are working, you are winning this confidence every day, then your quality is there to be better in each match.
