Alex Iwobi says he’s delighted with his second assist for Everton against Crystal Palace on Saturday.
Iwobi stole the show once again as he created two of the three goals by the Toffees in the encounter at the Goodison Park.
He set up the first goal scored by Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who beat Palace defender before beating the goalkeeper from the six yards.
Everton’s win was rounded off in fine style five minutes from time as substitute O’Neil exchanged passes with Iwobi, whose backheel teed up his team-mate perfectly to seal an comprehensive win.
In an interview on the official Everton website, Iwobi admitted he’s playing with so much confidence and credited the role of manager Frank Lampard.
He said, “On a personal level, I am playing with a lot of confidence.
“The manager tells me, ‘Play the way you train’. You can see I’m very confident and I’m able to express myself on the pitch.
“For our third goal, I was able to do that with a cheeky little flick! I saw Dwight McNeil running with the ball and then Neal [Maupay] make a first run.
“I made a second run, Dwight spotted me, and I could see him continuing his run, so I played it into his path. It looked like a great goal, but I have to give credit to Dwight.
“The manager gives me so much belief and, when I have confidence and motivation on the pitch, I feel I’m almost unstoppable.”
Iwobi now has five assists for the Toffees, and only Kelvin De Bryune more scoring opportunities than him this season.
Iwobi is expected to be involved again, when Everton take on Fulham in their next Premier League fixture scheduled for Saturday, October 29, 2022.
