Super Eagles star man – Alex Iwobi, has consistently put forth outstanding performance this season as he contributed significantly to Everton’s 3-0 victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday.
The Frank Lampard men played Crystal Palace at Goodison Park for the first time since their incredible 3-2 comeback that ensured their survival in the Premier League.
This time, Calvert-Lewin, the game-winning player, started, and he once again managed to score against Palace, it was his first goal of the campaign.
Calvert-Lewin scored a fantastic goal after recovering the ball in the final third. Iwobi, who received it from Onana, located the Everton number nine player. He then slams it into the bottom corner after bouncing it around Guehi.
He has scored five Premier League goals against Crystal Palace, his joint-best return against a side in the competition and also against Newcastle.
Gordon doubled the lead for the home team in the 63rd minute, and just six minutes to stoppage time, Alex Iwobi turned provider yet again, receiving a pass from McNeil and handing it back to the winger for a close-range goal.

This season in the Premier League, Alex Iwobi has now contributed five assists. Nobody has more than Kevin De Bruyne.
Alex Iwobi vs. Crystal Palace:
– 53 touches
– 2 assists
– 87% pass accuracy (32)
– 1 shot
– 2 big chances created
– 3 key passes
– 2/3 accurate long balls

Another outstanding display ✨
In the Premier League this year, only Kevin De Bruyne (20) has produced more opportunities from open play from midfielders than Alex Iwobi (19).
Six of Everton’s past nine goals in all competitions have been delivered directly by Alex Iwobi. Six assists and one goal.
This has been his tale ever since the league Cup match against Fleetwood Town on August 23.
The Toffees secured the three points, a vital one and at the other end, the Eagles were totally quiet and were not able to find their rhythm in the final third, which will disappoint Patrick Vieira.
