Carabao cup/Nigerians abroad: Iwobi key to Fleetwood’s downfall

    A fantastic display from the Nigerian International yesterday as he made his mark for Carlo Ancelotti’s team and ensured his presence felt by finding the back of the net and providing a crucial assist at the English cup league for the first time ever in his career.

    Alex Iwobi assisted teammate Richarlison who scored a brace before he compounded the woes of Fleetwood by scoring a peach of goal vital for a winner with Moise Keane coming on to seal the victory for the Merseyside blue.

    Everton has now progressed to the fourth round following their cruise to victory yesterday over Fleetwood and would face Westham next week in a graduated sequence.

    The extraordinary vivacity injected into the game by Iwobi is worthy to mention as he looks to deliver anytime he’s given the opportunity by the manager as there exist a stiff competition in the Everton squad. The 24 year old looks promising and looks eager to break into the starting XI of Carlo Ancelotti’s side who needs a reliable and consistent player to maintain his impressive 100% unbeaten run in the premier league.

    Iwobi had a brilliant evening, recording a total of five shots, four successful dribbles from seven attempts, 78 touches on the ball and 48 completed passes from 54 with an accuracy of 89%. He would have the Manager’s trust if he can replicate this wonderful performance when they face Crystal Palace on Saturday.
