He was impressive in the Toffees 3-1 victory over Chelsea last Saturday, but Alex Iwobi is currently being trolled by users on Twitter.
The Nigerian international who was on for the full 90 minutes was mocked on Twitter for his reaction after he was dribbled by Chelsea’s Ngolo Kante.
The 23-year-old appeared to ‘dab’ after the Chelsea midfielder moved past him in the penalty area. Users on Twitter found it funny with some questioning Iwobi’s reaction.
I don't mean to distract you from Major General Buhari, Aisha Buhari, Rihanna, Seyi Makinde and all, but this video of Iwobi dabbing after being dribbled past by Kante is so funny. pic.twitter.com/rgDMpllsSr

What’s A Dab?: It is a popular dance style in hip hop which is also performed as a kind of celebration by football players. Players such as Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard are famous for doing the “dab” celebration.
Nevertheless, despite the ridicule, Iwobi had the last laugh as goals from Calver Lewin (2) and Richarlison secured a vital win over Ngolo Kante’s Chelsea.
Everton are currently 14th in the table with 17 points from 16 games, while Chelsea are fourth with 29 points from the same number of games.
