The Spaniard was an absolute joy to watch on his day, and while Iwobi didn’t get to play too many games alongside him for Arsenal, due to injuries and poor timing, he clearly made a big impression on the Nigeria international.

The midfielder’s return to Everton’s starting XI following November’s international break has coincided with a sequence of four wins and one draw from six matches.

Iwobi, who has started Everton’s last six matches in different playing positions – wing-back and midfielder – hopes to continue helping Carlo Ancelotti’s side with his performances.

The hosts looked the more confident of the two sides in the opening exchanges, and were rewarded as Dominic Calvert-Lewin headed Iwobi’s cross off Holding and into the bottom right-hand corner of Bernd Leno’s net.
