Nigerian international, Alex Iwobi, is feared to have cupped an injury as his team, Arsenal, were beaten 3-4 on Sunday by Liverpool at the Emirates.
Iwobi was hauled off the pitch just before the hour mark with the Gunners surprisingly trailing Liverpool 4-1.
Philippe Coutinho actually scored a brace to help Liverpool to the 4-3 victory over Iwobi’s Arsenal at the Emirates stadium in the 2016/17 EPL’s first heavyweight clash on Sunday.
Walcott opened scoring on the half-hour after benefiting from Iwobi’s pass before Coutinho levelled seconds before half-time with a stunning free-kick.
Lallana netted moments after the break and Coutinho added Reds’ third on 54 minute.
Mane and Oxlade-Chamberlain traded goals in quick succession before Chambers made it 4-3 with glancing header.
The Gunners attempted to at least snatch a point but they failed as they have now only won one in their last eight opening game of the season.
