Alex Iwobi started and finished a sweet move to earn 10-men Everton a win against Newcastle In the EPL.
Playing in his 17th Premier League game of the season, Alex Iwobi is scoring at Goodison Park for the first time since September 2019.
Also, This is Iwobi’s second of the season and the first time scored two Premier League goals in a season for Everton since his move in 2019.
Meanwhile, Iwobi endured a rough couple of years which has led to a fractured relationship with Everton fans.
The goal may kick start something new for Alex Iwobi and the toffees.
Everton fans had concluded he was a waste of talent and 40 million pounds after delivering tepid performances.
The arrival of former Chelsea coach Frank Lampard means a fresh start for the Nigerian.
By February, Lampard was praising the Nigerian for his fantastic work ethic and gave reasons why he is back in the team after the last playing in December.
“One of the beauties of coming in like this is it’s a restart for everybody. What Alex has done is trained at a great level,” Lampard said after the game as per Everton FC News.
“He demanded a place in the team with his performance… He had to do a lot of work off the ball & he did everything”.
The former Chelsea coach needs such faith from the fans and players in search of a good run of form.
Lampard’s faith shows glimpses of paying off as Everton ground out a result with ten men.
