Why I feel unstoppable – Iwobi
Alex Iwobi has revealed the secret behind his impressive form for Premier League club Everton this season.
Iwobi has been one of the top performers for the Toffees this term.
The 26-year-old provided two assists in Everton’s impressive 3-0 win against Crystal Palace at Goodison Park on Saturday.
He was named Man of the Match after the game.
“On a personal level, I am playing with a lot of confidence,” the Nigeria international told Everton’s official website.
“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!
