- Arsenal travel to the Merseyside to take on Everton in a Premier League fixture
Alex Iwobi scored a cheeky goal in training with Petr Cech in goal but Arsenal fans were left unimpressed.
The Gunners are preparing or a crunch Premier League game against Everton at Goodison Park as Unai Emery will be looking to keep their top four hopes alive with a win.
Arsenal have been blessed with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette firepower as they have scored 30 league goals between them this season.
However, footages of Iwobi who has only managed four goals in all competitions this season, emerged in training scoring a sublime goal.
In the video clip, the squad are running some shooting drills as they receive the ball on the edge of the box before taking a touch and striking at goal.
The Super Eagle star got the ball from a coach, touching it to the right, then lines himself up for the shot.
Iwobi's effort lacks power as he falls to the ground but it is all a disguise, as the 22-year-old’s shot is chipped over Cech, who has come out of his goal to narrow his angle.
The ball bounces off the post and went in, leaving the Arsenal goalkeeper amazed as Iwobi’s team-mates scream in celebration as he runs away.
