Naija Players Abroad By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 06/12/2018

Alex Iwobi and three Arsenal players of Lucas Torreira, Bernd Leno, and Rob Holding all been shortlisted for the club Player of the Month of November.

The 22-year-old Nigeria international laid on an assist for Alexandre Lacazette in the 1-1 draw against Liverpool and also delivered an inch-perfect through ball at Bournemouth in the build-up to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang winner at Dean Court two weekend ago.

Torreira's outstanding start to life with Arsenal since his move to north London from Sampdoria last summer continued as Uruguay midfielder played a key role in Gunners draws with Liverpool at Emirate Stadium and Wolves, and plus the 2-1 win over Ediee Howie's men on the 25th of this month.

German goalkeeper Leno also continued the impress, making four crucial saves at Molineux Stadium before clawing an 89th-minute header away in the win at the Vitality Stadium but Holding has had a fine month too, impressing at the heart of the defence as he plays with increasing authority as a mainstay of the backline.

Arsenal was forced to a 2-2 score draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford on Wednesday night as Unai Emery are now 20 matches unbeaten but welcome Huddersfield on at Emirate Stadium on Saturday afternoon kickoff.
