Very unfortunate that Nigerian International football player, Alex Iwobi nodded into his own net to deny his club, Arsenal the maximum points in their Matchday 5 cracker with PSG at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night.
Arsenal were feeling all three points were already in the bag until Iwobi nicks Lucas Moura’s header past David Ospina and into the net in the 77 minute.
Asene Wenger rang the change, starting Olivier Giroud ahead of Theo Walcott after his late leveller against Manchester United.
Also, Kieran Gibbs was preferred to Nacho Monreal in defence, while Alex Iwobi replaced Mohamed Elneny.
On the other hand, Serge Aurier was refused entry into the United Kingdom due to an ongoing court case, so Thomas Meunier took his place on the right side of defence.
The visitors were the better side from the start and in the 18th minute, Edison Cavani slides in the opener from Blaise Matuidi’s cross down the left flank.
However, the Gunners crawled back when Giroud levels via added-time from the spot after Alexis Sanchez was brought down in the area.
Arsenal came out after the interval with a different approach, putting the pressure on the visitors which resulted in their second goal as the ball came off Marco Verratti’s leg into his own net to put Arsenal in front but Iwobi’s own goal brought PSG level.
The reverse fixture finished 1-1 with Cavani opening the scoring after 44 seconds.
