Lampard hails Iwobi for effort v Forest as the Nigerian hits Everton milestone


Frank Lampard has hailed Alex Iwobi for his immense contribution in Everton 1-1 draw against Nottingham Forest in a league game on Saturday.

The Nigerian for the third game in a row dropped a man of the match performance in the midfield.

Alex Iwobi was everywhere on the pitch mopping things and also creating for his team.

Against Nottingham Forest at Goodision Park, Alex Iwobi won 100% of the tackles he went in for, had 68 touches of the ball, made four key passes and completed two dribbles.

The highlight of his match arguably was a bit of defensive work as he sprinted back around 70 yards to stop a Nottingham Forest attack towards the corner flag.

That rightfully earned him a huge round of applause from all sides of Goodison as they continue to appreciate every ounce of effort he is giving for this side.

And Everton manager Frank Lampard only had positives to say about the Nigerian.

“I thought Alex Iwobi was fantastic. Receiving it, controlling it and breaking through lines and passing well,” Lampard said.

Meanwhile, the player has celebrated his 100th appearance for the club.

“Honoured To Have Made 100 Appearances For The Blues.” he wrote.
