Greg O’Keeffe has been left very impressed on the All Together Now podcast about Alex Iwobi’s recent Everton performances.

Everton looked doomed and destined for the Championship only a few weeks ago after a string of poor results, however, in recent time Frank Lampard has seen his side relinquish the ball and possession a lot more especially against Chelsea and Manchester United which has seen them pick up huge results.

Have you been impressed by Iwobi recently?

Yes!

Yes!

No!

No!

Lampard has also been able to get a lot out of some players who may have been written off in the form of Alex Iwobi who has just 14 goal involvements in 94 appearances, and Fabian Delph who’s had a public spat on social media with an Everton fan in the past, but have both been regulars over the last few games.

It’s the former that has left O’Keeffe stunned by how good he’s performed.

(19:03) “Alex Iwobi, I never ever thought he’d transform into the player he seems to be becoming, I’m stunned, absolutely stunned and I’m delighted for him.”

Which of these Serie A stars did the Toffees miss out on?

Iwobi’s performances certainly haven’t gone unnoticed as Match of the Day pundit Alan Shearer highlighted how good his work was defensively when they beat Leicester City last weekend as he tracked back and made some crucial interceptions, this is despite being signed as a very attacking winger.

If Frank Lampard is able to keep squeezing the most potential out of players who have maybe not been regulars, that could help the squad as a whole become more competitive in a whole load of positions, but also help save the club money in the transfer market if players themselves are improving.
