The Super Eagles star has been a consistent performer for the toffees in recent weeks
Everton fans have taken to social media to praise Super Eagles midfielder Alex Iwobi for his performance in the toffees’ hard-fought 1-0 victory against Manchester United.
The Toffees continued their struggle to avoid relegation when they welcomed United to Goodison Park.
Both sides were hardly convincing, especially in the attack. However, a moment of brilliance form Anthony Gordon, whose shot deflected off Harry Maguire and crept into the post, was all Everton needed to clinch the victory.
The Red Devils controlled the game but struggled to create anything solid in the attack.
Iwobi was brilliant in the game, he was involved in the build-up to Everton’s goal, and he helped in defense. The Nigeria international had two interceptions, one tackle, and one clearance.
The Super Eagles star has been consistent for Everton recently. The last time Everton won a game, Iwobi who scored the crucial goal against Newcastle.
Following his performance, Everton fans took to social media to shower praises on the 25-year-old.
Really pleased to see Alex Iwobi growing in confidence. Behind-the-scenes, he has fronted up to the cameras and spoken really well in a few difficult weeks for #EFC. Deserves his chance in his favoured position and put in a big performance today after promising signs this week.

Mykolenko & Iwobi today credit where it’s due. Both were superb.

After the error on Wednesday from Ben Godfrey I was delighted for him today, arguably his best game in a Blue shirt. Pickford was brilliant, Delph and Iwobi also super today. Much needed 3 points and confidence boost. On to Leicester now. Have a great weekend Toffees

The one player that ignored the criticism (rightly criticised I must add at the start) but just got on with it.

I’m speechless. How do we get beat by most of the bottom teams and yet Ronaldos mob. And with ten men as DCL didn’t turn up. Special mention to our Messi, Iwobi
