Alex Iwobi has finally been punished for going on a night out less than 48 hours before a game by being dropped against Tottenham today.

According to Martin Keown the Nigerian international was filmed partying in the early hours of Saturday 6 January, the day before the shock 4-2 FA Cup loss to Nottingham Forest.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was angry at Iwobi but still selected him for the following match, the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final against Chelsea.

And Keown reckons his late-night antics over a month ago is a reason for it.

“Interesting with Iwobi, people said he wasn’t disciplined,” Keown said on BT Sport.

“But he’d be gutted today.

“I said that Wenger would wait before he hits a player for discipline.

“He’s not playing today and they’re might be something in that.

“He has a long memory Arsene Wenger.

“He would have done what’s right for the day but it wouldn’t have helped him let’s say.”
