Alex Iwobi was all smiles with Chuba Akpom and Jeff Reine-Adelaide after the trio helped Arsenal beat Reading 2-0 in the fourth round of the League Cup on Tuesday night.

Two goals from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain handed Arsene Wenger’s men victory and a place in the quarter-finals of the cup competitions.

Iwobi has developed into a star of the Arsenal first team in recent months after impressing for Wenger’s side in midfield.

And the Nigeria international seemed to be in high spirits as he snapped a selfie in the dressing room with his two team-mates after Tuesday’s win.

Iwobi shared the photo above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “Next Round Here We Come ⚽️🏆 #Selfie #TheJeff #AK #BIG17”

The midfielder will be hoping to be involved when Arsenal return to Premier League action with a trip to Sunderland on Saturday lunchtime.
