Nigeria international, Alex Iwobi, returned to the Arsenal starting lineup on Wednesday but his 70 minutes on the pitch counted for less as the Gunners could only play a barren draw against West Ham United.

Iwobi and his Arsenal teammates were unable to find a way past David Moyes’ new resurgent team and thus had to settle for a point that does their minimum top-four ambition very little good.

On their part, Manchester City have set a new Premier League record of 15-consecutive wins after a 4-0 victory over Swansea at the Liberty Stadium.

The result means City have bettered the 14-straight victories Arsenal managed between February and August 2002.

City have now taken 49 points from 17 games so far this season, which represents the best-ever start to an English top-flight campaign.

Pep Guardiola’s men have dropped just two points all season, with the draw at home to Everton the only blot on their book thus far.
