EPL: Iwobi Has Done It Again – Lampard Assesses Super Eagles’ Star After 1-0 Win Over Man Utd

Everton manager, Frank Lampard, has hailed the influence Alex Iwobi had in their shock 1-0 win over Manchester United on Saturday.

The relegation battlers beat Ralf Rangnick’s men in front of their supporters at Goodison Park.

Lampard started Iwobi in central midfield, after previously using him in wide positions and was impressed by what the Nigerian midfielder offered.

“Alex [Iwobi] is one who people can see I rely on. We have moved his position, we have changed in and he has offered so much,” Lampard said as quoted by Liverpool World.

“I think you could feel the crowd’s reaction towards him today with his energy and qualities.

“I don’t know how many kilometres he has run this week but he’s done it again [on Saturday].

“It is about character and Premier League players get questioned in difficult moments. A lot of questions asked about [him] and me over the last few days, especially if you make those individual errors.”
