Super Eagles star Alex Iwobi was handed a standing ovation after a decent performance as Everton beat West Ham 2-0 to return to winning on Saturday, October 19, in a tough Premier League clash, at Goodison Park.
The Nigerian international was in action for 87 minutes and missed what could have been his second goal for Toffees, opting to go for power instead of precision and technique as he fired the ball against the shot-stopper.

However, Everton were rewarded with their second goal in the second minute of additional time through substitute Gyfil Sigurdsson, who incidentally replaced Iwobi.
Earlier on, Bernard netted Everton’s first after beating West Ham goalkeeper Jimenez Roberto in the 17th minute, with Everton holding on to claim an important win at the blast of the final whistle.
Iwobi has so far made his fourth start in the Premier League for the Toffees since his switch from Arsenal in the summer as Everton ended their four-game losing run in the English topflight.
