Super Eagles midfielder Alex Iwobi has expressed satisfaction with his new role as a right back during Everton’s 3-2 win over Ola Aina’s Fulham.
The former Arsenal star was deployed as a right-back by manager Carlo Ancelotti as the Toffees seek their first win in five games, having lost three and drawn one of their four previous Premier League matches, while compatriot Aina was involved during 90 minutes for the Cottagers.
The Merseyside club got off to a great start when fit forward Dominic Calvin-Lewin put them in front after 42 seconds. Bobby Reid threw the level of the home side after 15 minutes. But Everton took a 3-1 lead late in the first half after Frenchman Lucas Digne set up Calvin-Lewin for his second and Abdoulaye Doucoure.
Fulham’s Ivan Cavaleiro missed a penalty in the second half and that proved costly, as he only scored once after that courtesy given by Chelsea star Ruben Loftus-Cheek to end the match 3-2. After the match, Super Eagles midfielder Iwobi tweeted: ‘RWB +3 We Mooove.’
Everton are now sixth in the major league record with 16 points, while Fulham’s struggles this season continue as they rank 17th with just four points after nine games in the 2020/2021 season.
