Many football enthusiasts wonder why Arsenal have crowned Alex Iwobi as ‘the Nutmeg Prince.’
The 22-year-old’s manner of putting the ball between oppositions’ legs too often earned him the name.
And here’s a clip of some of his recent nutmegs as shared by the Gunners’ media in celebrating his Premier League debut three years ago on Wednesday.

Iwobi who was introduced as a 73rd-minute substitute in Arsenal’s 2-1 over Blackpool on Wednesday has been a regular in Unai Emery’s team this season scoring a goal in 12 appearances across all competitions.
He will be hoping to play his eighth Premier League match of the season when the Gunners’ host Liverpool on Saturday.
