How did Iwobi perform against Chelsea? 

Who would have seen this coming? Super Eagles Alex Iwobi played his part for Everton who secured a huge victory over high-flying Chelsea as Duncan Ferguson began life as interim manager with a win. Where was this sort of team performance under their sacked manager Marco Silva? I know it sounds like a cliché but today is when I finally came to appreciate the saying that ‘players play for their manager’. As for Iwobi, he has come under criticisms from some quarters recently. Amir Mir writing for remarked:”As for Iwobi, he moved to Goodison Park from Arsenal, but he has struggled to showcase any real consistent form.” And if you think about it, 1 goal in 14 Premier League matches is not a very healthy return for a 24 million pounds rated winger/centre midfielder. However Iwobi played his part today in an enthralling encounter that saw them tear to shreds any pre-match predictions by dismantling mighty Chelsea 3:1. Rating Iwobi for today’s encounter, Adam Jones wrote on Liverpool Echo:”Alex Iwobi – 6 Was a little sloppy in possession on occasion which he will be disappointed with, but the winger stuck to his task expertly, staying wide to stretch the Chelsea defence and get himself in dangerous position on a regular basis.”
