Super Eagles forward Alex Iwobi believes Arsenal's 4-1 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday was a confirmation that his side can move on from a bad patch following their recent bad run of form.

Iwobi and his team-mates have been without a win in 2018, losing three and drawing two. Their miseries were put to bed with four goals in the opening quarter of the encounter at the Emirates from the Nigerian, Alexandre Lacazette, Nacho Monreal and Laurent Koscielny.

Reacting to the big win against a Palace side who returned a better side after the break, Iwobi said: "We started with a lot of intensity, that was the key after our last few performances. We showed today that we can move on.

"When everyone is giving 100% we are comfortable. We have to push on against other teams now, consistency is key."

Up next for Iwobi and his team-mates is a midweek Cup tie against Chelsea at the Emirates on Wednesday.
