Super Eagles star Alex Iwobi appeared confused over the formation Arsenal were playing against Brighton as he replaced Mesut Ozil at half-time.
The 22-year-old midfielder replaced Ozil in midfield at half-time and the Nigerian international was captured on television cameras asking team-mate Granit Xhaka what formations Arsenal were playing.
Iwobi, who has been performing well for Arsenal this season, took to the pitch in his place, but it seems missed a vital conversation with Emery in the changing room.
He appeared to ask Xhaka: “What formation are we playing.”
Arsenal went on to draw the game as the league’s top goal scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang opened the scoring before Jurgen Locadia equalised.
Fans on social media had a field day on the back of the exchange between the two Gunners stars, with one tweeting: “Iwobi didn’t even know what formation Arsenal were playing.”
However, Ozil lasted just 45 minutes against Brighton and after the game Emery stated the German was taken off for ‘tactical’ reasons, opposed to because of his performance.
Emery said: “It was only tactically.”We did before, in other matches also change the idea from the first half with other players.
“And today I did it with Mesut, that is only tactically, not another problem.”
