Arsenal midfielder Alex Iwobi believes that Unai Emery’s more demanding style of management will help him as a player.

The north London side have lost their opening two games of the season, having been blown away by Manchester City at the Emirates and then narrowly defeated 3-2 at Chelsea.

But the Nigeria international has been enthused by their performances so far and is confident the Spanish tactician will get the best out of the team.

“It’s exciting times to be fair,” Iwobi told Arsenal Player. “Everybody’s enjoying and buying into the new ideas. For me personally, I’m enjoying the new sessions, the new training methods and the new ideas, so I’m enjoying my time with him.

“He demands a lot. He’s a lot more intense, a lot of high pressing and keeping the ball so that it benefits us if we have the ball. It’s good for us, especially the attackers who like to have the ball a lot.

“It’s making me feel a bit sharper, I’m doing things with a bit more intensity. It’s not just for me, though, I feel like I’m helping the team a lot more. It’s benefitting me a lot more.”
