Alex Iwobi may be fit enough to play in Arsenal’s quarterfinals Emirates FA Cup game against non-league side Lincoln on Saturday evening. Arsene Wenger had initially revealed that Iwobi was a big doubt for the match due to illness.
However the youngster who has eight caps for Nigeria was pictured training with his team-mates on Friday evening. Iwobi was ruled out of the Gunners’ embarrassing 5-1 hammering in the hands of Bayern Munich on Tuesday due to the state of his health which Wenger attributed to a sickness bug.
Joining Iwobi in Friday’s evening training was midfielder Mesut Ozil who was also out with illness but curiously made an appearance in the Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich at the Emirates Stadium.
