    Iwobi deserves to be in our starting line-up this season. My only concern is having him in the forward line. As a cm he could be a broke man's Iniesta - that's good enough for us at the moment.

    He has the right tools for it.

    Have to go to bat for Iwobi - he's been good the last few games or so. He had a little dip after a great start to the season but his performances have picked up. I don't expect him to be a primary threat but he's more than held his own as a secondary one. I do wish he had more end product, he just gets the jitters when he has to do anything at the business end of the move, but I feel his progressive play is the best thing we have to look forward to in those wing positions. Nobody else is bringing the pain.

    I want to see him succeed, and build upon his performances. Does he have it in him?

    He definitely does have it in him. I can see why the coaches like him alot. His mental strength is incredible. Despite the criticism he gets from his own fans on social media, and during the games, he still gives 100% and never gives up or hides. He has shown consistent performances over the last 3 games now and he will improve his finishing and assist creation over time. I think it's telling that he seems to be the only creative influence we have had in the last few games and is showing that he is becoming a very influential player.

    Actually think he played extremely well , he's a guy that links play and makes the team function better , play him in a better technical attack he would be appreciated more .

    However if he's expected to be the main driving force it's just not going to work not for awhile .

    Works hard but lacks quality. At 22 we should be aeeing more, compared to other players at a similar age in top teams he is a million miles away.
