Everton fans believe Alex Iwobi is better under Benitez after Huddersfield win

However, they were pegged back when the Terriers scored via a Tom Lees header.

Everton were then handed a red card after Moise Kean clashed with Sorba Thomas before Andros Townsend scored the winner.

But it was Iwobi who caught the eye of the Everton support.

Last season was an underwhelming campaign for the attacker.

Despite playing 36 times across all competitions, the Everton winger scored just twice and assisted three goals. He is already 40% of the way to matching last season’s total in what has been a great start to the term.

The hope is Iwobi continues these performances for Everton after his Huddersfield display.

Competition for places in the wide areas is extremely high for the Blues. Andros Townsend and Demarai Gray have joined this summer, while Kean has returned from his loan spell at PSG.

You would not bet against any of the trio displacing the player. It is part of the reason why the ace needs to maintain his high-level of quality shown in the opening few weeks.

Failure to do so and there will be more questions over why the club spent £34m on him.

Here is how some Everton fans reacted to Iwobi’s performance…
