Like Iwobi, Like Eze
In another Premier League game, Eberechi Eze completed more take-ons for Crystal Palace against Aston Villa.
He completed more take-ons than any player in the first half and he also won more duels than anyone on the pitch in the opening half of their week 3 Premier League game.
Eze has started the season a personal note and has become one of the most important members of the Crystal Palace squad so far playing pivotal roles in their opening games against Arsenal and Liverpool.
