Lots of Everton fans have been lauding a skill move from Alex Iwobi in the Merseyside derby against Liverpool on Saturday.
As per a clip shared on Twitter, the Nigeria international executed a heel-to-heel flick to get away from both Andy Robertson and Gini Wijnaldum in a relatively tight area.
Iwobi did not start the game and so was keen to impress Carlo Ancelotti when he came on as a substitute, and this lovely piece of footwork would have surely caught the eye of the Italian.
The 24-year old came under a lot of criticism from members of the Goodison Park faithful following his display in the previous derby back in June, but this piece of skill certainly pleased many Evertonians this time around.
Should Everton cut their losses on Iwobi?
It is perhaps safe to say that Iwobi has not had the best of times in his career at the Toffees so far, as he has only managed to score three goals and provide just three assists in 35 games in all competitions (via Transfermarkt), but pulling off this piece of fancy footwork against the Reds might boost his confidence.
