After the match, former Everton midfielder, Alex Iwobi who was in action for seventy-five minutes described the goals as ‘outrageous’, stressing the Cottagers need more than just good performances to move up the standings.

“Of course, it’s good to have good performances,” said Alex Iwobi as per The Athletic.

“But we need to turn them into results. That’s what pushes you up the table. It’s all good saying you performed well, but we need results. It’s fine margins.”

“The goals were outrageous,” said Iwobi. “We showed character and fighting spirit. It’s just unfortunate we didn’t take something.”

After 14 weeks, Fulham occupy 14th spot in the English Premier League, having won only four games and suffered seven defeats.
