Twitter have been awashed with encomium towards Super Eagles midfielder,Alex Iwobi after he propelled Everton to a 2-1 win over Wolverhampton on Tuesday.
Impressed by the player’s intensity and resurgence after a poor start at the club, Everton fans have expressed their relief and delight over Iwobi’s performance as Toffees picked three points at the Monileux.
Iwobi lead was pegged back by Wolves but Michael Keane dug deep to grab the winner for the visitors; a performance that prompted a large number of Everton fans to described the Nigerians as one of the shining lights that inspired Carlo Ancelotti side on Tuesday night.
Iwobi came under a barrage of criticism from fans and club legend alike after he failed to hit the ground running following his big-money move from Arsenal. He was later considered for a move away from Goodison Park last summer but Ancelotti opted to give the Nigerian a second chance.
It is no big achievement that the Super Eagles midfielder has metamorphosed into one of coach Carlo Ancelotti finished product that has inspired Everton’s performance this season.
@ShoeyEFC1234 described Iwobi’s performance as absolutely astounding while Magee_316 said the Nigerian is beginning to show the club some of the qualities that made Everton splashed £40m on him.
“Alex Iwobi what a player he’s been these last few months. The end product isn’t always the best but he gives it his all,” said (@JakeMartinMagee.
