Alex Iwobi and his Arsenal teammates are preparing for the North London derby against Tottenham on Sunday, November 6.

Iwobi got a taste of what might turn out to be a feisty encounter in training when he got a nasty tackle from a teammate, Gabriel Paulista.

Although he is not expected to play in the game against Tottenham, Paulista was making an impression in training.

The Brazilian defender was also seen flying into tackles with Rob Holding.

Iwobi, however, was all smiles later, posing for a photo with Gabriel after they ended up playing and winning in the same in training.

Uno That Good Feeling Yeah ? That Winning Feeling,” Iwobi write on Instagram alongside a photo.
