Arsenal’s FA Cup victory over non-League Sutton United may have come at a cost as Alex Iwobi’s leg had to be wrapped up in a bandage after the 2-0 win. The Nigerian winger revealed his battle wound on Snapchat with the 20-year-old posting a picture of his foot along with a bandaged emoji. Iwobi was able to carry on after Jamie Collins’ poor challenge in the first half but he was eventually taken off in the 74th minute.Collins escaped punishment from Premier League official Michael Oliver during the highly anticipated FA Cup fifth-round tie at Gander Green Lane. Alexis Sanchez came off the bench to replace Iwobi much to the surprise of spectators and pundits alike. Arsene Wenger insisted star man Sanchez was not at risk by playing on Sutton’s much-talked about plastic pitch. ‘Alexis is more a guy who has very good co-ordination, he is light on his feet. I don’t think it was a risk.’ Iwobi will be hoping to be back in action in time for Arsenal’s Premier League clash with Liverpool at Anfield on March 4.  The Gunners are not in action this weekend as scheduled opponents Southampton are competing in the EFL Cup final against Manchester United on Sunday
