“It’s A Joy To Be Part Of Everton” – Alex Iwobi

Alex Iwobi says it is a joy to be part of Everton’s “fluid” and enterprising forward line as he scores his first Premiership goal for his new team.

The Nigerian international has scored twice in his first two Everton starts – admitting he’s surprised even himself by converting with his head in successive matches – and smoothly bedded into Marco Silva’s side following his deadline-day switch from Arsenal.

“The manager wanted me and Richarlison to stay wide and stretch Wolves as much as possible,” explained Iwobi.

“We did that and created space for Seamus [Coleman] and Lucas [Digne], which we used to our advantage.

“Everyone is buying into his ideas and it seems to be working.

“We knew how difficult it would be against Wolves, they have a strong team and are trying to compete for the top six.

“But we got the result, it has been a great start for me and we are back to winning ways, which is the main thing.

“We are playing a lot of attacking football, we score goals and have a lot of fluidity in the attacking third.”
