Top three runners in the Premier League

Alex Iwobi has been ranked amongst the top three players who have covered the most distance in the Premier League after 22 rounds of games.

The Nigerian midfielder who has been one of the if not the most brightest spark for Everton this season is receiving the recognition worthy of his effort.

Alex Iwobi has been played in different roles by different managers and in each role, he has done a great job.

His tireless runs, important tackles, blocks, and coverage, make him an important player for Everton under Frank Lampard and now, Sean Dyche.

Alex Iwobi’s work rate and contribution defensively were evident over the weekend as Everton secured a shocking 1-0 win against Arsenal.
