Many Everton fans were delighted with Alex Iwobi’s short cameo against Southampton on Monday night.
The Toffees edged their clash against the Saints 1-0 thanks to an early goal from Richarlison. It was an important victory for Carlo Ancelotti’s men – they are now just two points away from the top four with a game in hand over fourth-placed West Ham United (Sky Sports).
£22.95m-valued Iwobi (Transfermarkt) was only introduced with three minutes left on the clock, but he impressed even in that short period of time. No player attempted more than his six dribbles during the match (SofaScore), and the three he completed also led the way (along with Abdoulaye Doucore and Andre Gomes). One moment in particular, when he beat three Saints players in a tight space near the corner flag, was exceptional.
Should Iwobi start vs West Brom?
These Everton supporters were delighted with his “magic” and took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts. One even drew excited comparisons with Brazilian Ballon D’Or-winning legend Ronaldinho, so impressed were they with Iwobi’s display.
Let’s see what these fans had to say about Iwobi below
“Iwobi has these moments of ludicrous brilliance that are so endearing”
“Never mind all that what about Alex twinkle toes iwobi”
“Iwobi Wan Kenobi at it again!!!”
“I’ve really grown to like iwobi”
“Where’s The video of iwobi turning into prime Ronaldinho in the corner, admin?”
“I don’t think we are over achieving at all. I’ll settle for the points all day but I have to be honest we are a hard watch mate. I know its unfashionable but I love iwobi. That last minute keep ball was truly magic”
In other news, Ancelotti is ready to sanction the bargain sale of this ace.
