And the Super Eagles forward while responding to a reporter’s question if there is added pressure with Tottenham playing in the UCL final, with Arsenal battling Chelsea in the Europa League three days earlier in Baku said: “We are not trying to focus on Tottenham. To be fair. I actually hope they lose but we are not trying to look at them.
“They have done well to be fair I have to be fair but we want to focus on ourselves and bring back the trophy," Iwobi added.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Arsenal fans are claiming that Eden Hazard and N’Golo Kante are both Armenian as they are keen to stop the Chelsea stars from featuring in the Europa League final in Baku.

Arsenal eggheads decided not to make the trip without the Armenian over safety concerns in Azerbaijan.
And without Mkhitaryan on the pitch, Arsenal fans took to the social media ‘claiming’ that Chelsea stars, including the pair of Hazard and Kante as Armenian Citizens’.
