Alex Iwobi is delighted to net his first Premier League goal of the season for Everton on Tuesday.

Carlo Ancelotti’s team went into the match without leading scorer Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison on the bench, however, Iwobi made that problem disappear inside five minutes.

James Rodriguez’s measured pass found Lucas Digne in space on the left and his cross found the unmarked Iwobi to produce a first-time finish into the bottom corner.

It was first league goal for the sin Super Eagles star since September 2019 and his second of the season in 19 matches for the Toffees.

After the game, an excited Iwobi wrote on Twitter : “That 3 Point Feeling’s So Sweet”.

The three points moved Everton to fourth position on the premier league table.
