Alex Iwobi ticks all boxes as a RWB in Everton 3-2 win against Ola Aina’s Fulham

Alex Iwobi did everything right in a new position as a right wing back to help Everton to a 3-2 win at Craven Cottage against Fulham.

The Everton and Fulham game saw four Nigerian players go head to head with Alex Iwobi the only on Carlo Ancelotti side while Tosin Adarabioyo, Lukmon Ademola and Ola Aina turned up for Scot Parker side.

While the trio of Tosin Adarabioyo, Ola Aina and Ademola Lokman gave their best in their natural positions it was Alex Iwobi who grabbed the headlines.

The former Arsenal attacker who has played in all positions in the attack and a few roles in the midfield was deployed as a right win back.

The Super Eagles midfielder whose pace, commitment, stamina and work ethics cannot be questioned owned the new role.

Alex Iwobi was involved in Everton second goal as he was immense for the Toffees on the right go forward and defending.

In fact, he didn’t put a foot wrong as he completed 88% of his passes, 15 final third passes, made a remarkable 9 ball recoveries.

He completed 5 out of the 6 attempted take-ons made 2 interception, won 2 tackles and made 3 clearances.

It was a completed display from Alex Iwobi at the Craven Cottage on Sunday.
