Alex Iwobi was on parade as Swedish outfit Ostersunds beat Arsenal 2-1 at the Emirates stadium in their Europa League round of 32-second leg tie without former Kano Pillars forward Alhaji Gero on Thursday.Two goals within one minute condemned the Gunners to a halftime defeat following Calum Chambers' own goal and Sema's powerful left-footer moments later.After the break, Bellerín got to the byline before chipping a cross to the back post where Kolašinac had time to thump high past Keita to ensure the Gunners progressed with a 4-2 aggregate win.SETTING THE SCENEWenger made three changes to the Arsenal side that won 3-0 in Sweden last week. Mustafi dropped out - likely saved for the League Cup final this weekend - with Holding coming in. Kolasinac replaced Monreal on the left, while Wilshere, who was captain for the evening was in for Ozil in the playmaking role.
