<p class="">Alex Iwobi scored his first goal of 2019 in an FA Cup game against Blackpool.</p>

<h1>Super Eagles midfielder Alex Iwobi scored his first ever goal in the FA Cup as Arsenal beat Blackpool 3-0 in an encounter played on Saturday, January 5.</h1>

<p class="">After his heroics as Arsenal beat <strong>Fulham</strong> in a London Derby in their last <strong>Premier League </strong>encounter, Iwobi did not let up against lower division side Blackpool.</p>

<p class="">Named in the starting lineup by <strong>Unai Emery</strong>, Iwobi put up a good performance as <strong>Joseph Willock</strong> scored in the 11th and 37th minute to give Arsenal a comfortable lead going into the halftime break.</p>

<figure class="image" align="center"> <img src="http://ocdn.eu/images/pulscms/MTU7MDA_/dcf41de2a2ec08a4f244de7914d55851.jpg" alt="Joseph Wilcox and Alex Iwobi were Arsenal’s goalscorers against Blackpool [Reuters]"> <figcaption>Joseph Wilcox and Alex Iwobi were Arsenal’s goalscorers against Blackpool [Reuters]</figcaption> </figure>

<p class="">The Gunners held on to the their two goal advantage for most of the second half aiming to prevent their opponents from scoring.</p>

<p class="">Iwobi however sealed the result when he converted a rebound past the Blackpool goalkeeper.</p>

<p class="">He was substituted for <a href="https://www.pulse.ng/sports/football/bukayo-saka-happy-with-first-premier-league-game-for-arsenal-against-fulham/j40bkzc" id="23369968-c3e7-4dd3-b23b-cff78dab7469">Arsenal youngster Bukayo Saka</a> in the 86th minute following another improved performance.</p>

<p class="">Since he moved up to the first team in 2015, Iwobi had not yet scored in an FA Cup clash until against Blackpool.</p>

<p class="">He would hope to find the back of the net when Arsenal take on <strong>West Ham United</strong> in their next Premier League clash scheduled for Saturday, January 12.</p>
