Alex Iwobi is currently showing that he’s now one of the best midfielders in the Premier League right now, after displaying an outstanding performance on Wednesday night against Leeds United. where he grab an assist.
The Nigerian midfielder, who featured as Everton and Liverpool played out an entertaining goalless Premier League draw on Saturday, pulled a replica of Leeds performance against the Reds.
Alex Iwobi’s performance especially and in recent months has got a lot of Nigerian football fans excited and makes them so proud as a compatriot.
He possesses vision, physical prowess, speed, aggression, and—most importantly—complete self-confidence. All praise should go to Frank Lampard for also believing in him; this is fantastic for Nigeria and Everton.

Pickford, and Alex Iwobi put in standout performances as the Merseyside derby on Saturday ended scoreless. After Everton’s Davies hit the woodwork, Nunez and Diaz were both denied scoring chances by the goalpost as well later in the first half.
Coady’s close-range goal gave Everton the impression that they had taken the lead in minute 69, but VAR disallowed it because the defender spotted in an offside position during the buildup.
After that, both teams continued to have opportunities, and Pickford made some outstanding stops to deny Firmino, who performed well after coming off the bench, three times.
At the other end, Maupay and McNeil had good chances, but Alisson was on guard to keep Everton from scoring.
Everton will go to Arsenal in their next match in search of their first victory of the season after drawing their last four Premier League games.
Liverpool, meanwhile, will focus on their Champions League match against Napoli in the middle of the week before playing Wolves at the weekend in the league.

At Arsenal, Alex Iwobi frequently displayed great promise as a secondary playmaker and facilitator, accelerating the tempo of attacks and linking everything together. It’s awesome to watch him develop such abilities while wearing an Everton jersey.
The 26-year-old midfielder is performing at a higher level right now. It’s incredible to witness his intelligence, pinpoint passing, and fast thinking in the midfield.
Alex Iwobi is not a winger, he's been playing as a wide forward for club and country for a while. I've always said his future was/is centrally. The surprise so far for me has been that he's playing as a CM and doing well. I think we haven't seen all of him yet.

That magical star player has always been in him and luckily got a manager who believes in his abilities now. What a player the Super Eagles of Nigeria got.
