Everton fans react to Alex Iwobi performance v Norwich City

Everton fans were impressed by the performance of the Nigerian winger.

Everton defeated relegation scrapping Norwich City in the Premier League this evening courtesy of Michael Keane’s headed effort. 

It was a good result for the Toffees from what was a fairly insipid display at Carrow Road. 

Not many of the Everton players found themselves in the fans’ good books on social media, but one who did was Alex Iwobi. 

The Nigerian put in an impressive display, particularly in the second half, as Everton battled their way to a narrow victory. 

Featuring on the right-wing, the attacker put in a tireless display in which he showcased some of his finer touches and qualities before coming off for Anthony Gordon in the 89th minute.

Indeed, one Everton fan even compared Iwobi to his uncle, Premier League cult hero Jay-Jay Okocha. 

Everton fans will no doubt be pleased to see such a display. For much of this season, Evertonian’s have been giving Iwobi some stick for his lack of impressive displays and telling contributions. 

Signed for a reported (Independent) £35 million after Everton struggled to secure the signature of Wilfried Zaha he has struggled to show himself worthy of the hefty price-tag. 

Everton fans will just be hoping it is the start of a consistent turnaround in fortunes for the Nigerian.
