Arsenal midfielder, Alex Iwobi has apologised to fans for the defeat to North London rivals, Tottenham, and has called on the supporters to continually believe in the team despite the loss.
The defeat no doubt angered a lot of the Arsenal supporters as it left them seven points behind Tottenham and in a difficult race to make a Champions League place.
Harry Kane scored in the 49th minute to give Tottenham all three points in the derby.
Iwobi was brought on for Mohamed Elneny in the 65 minute, and created a goal scoring opportunity for fellow substitute, Alexandre Lacazette.
This is not the first tine Iwobi is apologising to fans this season as he had earlier in the season also apologised for partying a night before an FA Cup game.
Addressing the Arsenal supporters, Iwobi wrote:
“Being an Arsenal fan myself, Saturday’s defeat was very disappointing and hard to take.”
“I know it’s hard to believe but we know exactly how you are feeling.”
He then called on the Arsenal fans to support the team in their next encounter.
“We have another match in a few days and trust me we’ll be putting in 100% to try and make this right.
“Massive love to all our fans for your support. #BIG17.”
