Rob Holding has taken to social media to claim that it was “about time” Alex Iwobi scored for Arsenal after Tuesday’s 4-1 win over Basel.

Both youngsters started the game in Switzerland as Arsene Wenger’s men secured an impressive win to top their Champions League group following PSG’s surprise 2-2 draw with Ludogorets in Paris.

Lucas Perez scored a hat-trick before Mesut Ozil set up Iwobi to net his first goal of the season for the north London side.

And Holding was quick to snap a picture with Iwobi on Arsenal’s flight back to the UK on Tuesday night.

Holding posted the picture above of the duo on his personal Instagram account and wrote the cheeky caption: “ob done! ✅ About time this guy scored 😏”

Arsenal will now turn their attentions back to Premier League affairs and their home clash against Stoke City at The Emirates on Saturday afternoon.
