Everton won out yesterday against Fulham as Dominic Calvert-Lewin once again inspired the Toffees to three points against the struggling Cottagers.
Calvert-Lewin scored two more goals to continue his fine run of form, with Abdoulaye Doucoure adding the decisive third goal.
Everton are still well within touching distance of the top of the table and Carlo Ancelotti will have been pleased to snatch the three points, despite Fulham’s spirited comeback efforts.
One man who did impress having come in for stick previously, was Alex Iwobi. The former Arsenal man played out wide and put in a fine performance both in attack and defence.
Iwobi’s performance also caught the eye of teammate, Yannick Bolasie, who despite getting nowhere near the first XI this term, took time out on Twitter to sing the praises of some of his teammates.
Got the result…DCL is that guy, 🐦 is back, Digne levels….but Iwobi needs those plaudits today was diff class first half💪🏿💙

Iwobi seems to be finding his feet a bit in recent weeks and played a key role in the consolation goal at Newcastle a few weeks back, too.
Ancelotti, then, will be pleased to see the former Gunner looking close to fulfilling his massive potential.
About time but good to see, from both players – TBR View
Everton fans have longed to see the best of Iwobi ever since he signed for big money from Arsenal and it’s only now they’re starting to see some of his better displays.
Iwobi is a threat. He has all the tools to be a good attacking player but he does strike you as someone who needs confidence.
He might just have that now, with Ancelotti driving him on from the sidelines. That, of course, is a boost for Everton and his display at Fulham was an excellent one.
