Everton will be banking on their return to winning ways and their talismanic midfielder, Alex Iwobi’s 100% win record against Fulham when they face the Cottagers at Craven Cottage on Saturday.
Iwobi was in imperious form last Saturday at the Goodison Park where he provided two assists to help the Toffees to a resounding 3-0 defeat of Crystal Palace with the Nigerian named as the official man of the match by the Premier League.
The 26 year old who has started in all the Premier League games he has featured in (27) since Frank Lampard took over from Rafa Benitez early this year has won all the three games he has played against Fulham.
The Nigerian started in all three games with two played as an Arsenal player.
If he starts on Saturday, it will be his 13th straight starts for Everton this term and a record consecutive start for him since he made his debut in the competition in October 2015.
From the 12 matches Iwobi has played so far this season, he has had two shots on target from a total of seven shots and has scored just once.
He averages 40 (39.67) passes per match (476 passes so far) with a pass completion rate of 82%, and has 5 assists.
Defensively, Iwobi has made 22 successful tackles, the second most by a Nigerian in the competition so far this season behind Joe Aribo. He has made nine interceptions and 14 clearances.
