Arsenal fans will be left feeling frustrated after Saturday’s 3-3 draw at West Ham United.
After all, those two dropped points probably signal the end of the club’s title bid.
Having led 2-0, Gunners supporters will be very disappointed with the way their side allowed the Hammers back into the game, especially as all three goals came via the same simple method – crosses to giant no.9 Andy Carroll, who scored a hat-trick.

But Carroll was arguably NOT the best player on the pitch.
The man-of-the-match accolade could easily have gone to Arsenal’s star attacker – Alex Iwobi.
Nineteen-year-old Iwobi provided two fine assists in the first half and continued to be his side’s best player after the break.
Having perfectly timed his pass to Mesut Ozil for Arsenal’s opener, Iwobi stylishly set up Alexis Sanchez for 2-0 on 35 minutes.
Iwobi’s technical ability is only half of what makes him so impressive.
Unlike the majority of his teammates, Iwobi is big, strong and – crucially – brave.
The lad has no fear. He is willing to take risks in possession in the hope of opening up defences, while he refuses to be bullied by tough opponents.
If only Arsenal had more tough nuts like Iwobi.

Iwobi is different to the rest – that’s why he’s so refreshing.
