‘Iwobi Is Playing Like Messi’ – Fans Hail Versatile Everton Winger After Display Vs Chelsea
Having played as a makeshift wing-back in his last three matches for the Toffees, manager Carlo Ancelotti deployed the Nigeria international in a more familiar position against Chelsea, playing him as a right-sided midfielder on the flank.
A rare Edouard Mendy error proved costly; Dominic Calvert-Lewin was fouled by the Senegalese and Gylfi Sigurdsson converted from the spot midway through the first half.
Chelsea had their moments to get something from the game but hit the woodwork in each half.
Despite the change in position, Iwobi continued his good form in recent weeks with an eye-catching performance against Chelsea and fans sang his praises during the game .
Here’s what they have been saying on Twitter about the Everton number 17:
