Iwobi: Why I Feel ‘Almost Unstoppable’

Alex Iwobi has reflected on Everton’s comprehensive 3-0 victory over Crystal Palace and his player-of-the-match display and says he feels almost unstoppable.

The Nigerian provided two of the assists in the big win and is now second only to Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne in the Premier League assist list for the season.

He had 100% tackles won, 87% pass accuracy, 53 touches, 13 final third passes, 4 ball recoveries, 3 key passes, 2/3 long balls completed and two big chances created.

”I feel Saturday’s win was a real team performance. Everyone played their part.

”We’d had a tough run of results but we were back at Goodison – back at our home – and it was a great way to bounce back, with three goals and three points,’ Iwobi tells Everton’s official website.

Iwobi says he has been playing with a lot of confidnece as he made his 27th start in 27 appearances in the competiton since the arrival of Frank Lampard as the

Toffees’ gaffer.

‘The manager tells me, ‘Play the way you train’. You can see I’m very confident and I’m able to express myself on the pitch. For our third goal, I was able to do that

with a cheeky little flick!

‘I saw Dwight McNeil running with the ball and then Neal [Maupay] make a first run. I made a second run, Dwight spotted me, and I could see him continuing his run, so

I played it into his path.

‘It looked like a great goal, but I have to give credit to Dwight,’ added Iwobi who gave Lampard the credit for his turnaround in fortunes

since he joined Everton from Arsenal in August 2019.

”The manager gives me so much belief and, when I have confidence and motivation on the pitch, I feel I’m almost unstoppable.
