Former Super Eagles skipper Sunday Oliseh has given huge praise to Alex Iwobi after a brilliant performance during Everton 0-0 with Liverpool in the Premier League encounter at Goodison.
The 26-year-old Nigeria international has been underrated at Everton but Frank Lampard has turned his career around since arriving on Merseyside early this year.
Dynamic Iwobi has been one of the top performers for the Toffees featuring as a full-back, winger, and attacking midfielder under the former Chelsea legend.
Former Arsenal ace received praise for another impressive performance in midfield for Everton against Jurgen Klopp’s men after he dominate the middle of the pack alongside summer signing Amadou Onana.
Iwobi provided crisp passes forward to Anthony Gordon and Maupay on several occasions, also demanding the ball in tight spots to give Everton a break.
Sunday Oliseh took to his Twitter official handle to react to Iwobi’s stellar performance in the first Merseyside derby of the season.
