Everton: Supporters rave over Alex Iwobi

Image for Everton: Supporters rave over Alex Iwobi

Everton supporters have aired their delight over the impact Alex Iwobi has made since signing in the summer.

The 23-year-old Nigerian signed for the Toffees from Arsenal and represents a fair chunk of the club’s £108-million summer spending spree, setting the Merseyside club back £34 million (via BBC).

Iwobi signed on a five-year deal for Marco Silva’s side and fans were delighted with how their man is progressing at Goodison Park.

The attacker has featured in 13 league and cup outings for the Toffees so far this term, bagging two goals and an assist over those games (via Transfermarkt).

He has been predominantly deployed in either the classic number ten role, or as a left-winger; in the latter particularly since the injury to Bernard (as per Everton).

With the 23-year-old flicking between the two positions, Everton supporters were clear on where their man should be playing for the Toffees.

What do we think?

While stationed on the left-hand side, Iwobi has an average rating, when deeper a 6.31/10, and when more advanced as a winger an average of 6.77/10 (as per Whoscored).

However, his best average rating comes when he is in the number ten role, with an average of 7.02/10 (per Whoscored), proving he performs best when centrally.

When Bernard returns from injury to occupy the left-wing again, the Toffees faithful should see the Nigerian move back, more centrally, where he has performed best.
