Super Eagles star to battle Manchester United’s Rashford, four others for Premier League POTM Award
The Super Eagles star has been one of the best midfielders in the Premier League this season, and he could earn a reward for his consistency
Iwobi has undergone a thorough transformation in the last six months. The former Arsenal man has risen from being one of the most taunted players in the Premier League to becoming one of the most celebrated.
After helping Everton preserve their Premier League status last season, Iwobi had steadily churned out great performances for Frank Lampard’s side this season, albeit in a new midfield position.
The 25-year-old has been a consistent performer for the Toffees, forming an integral part of Lampard’s setup. He has played 90 minutes in all eight of Everton’s games this season registering three assists.
In fact, Iwobi supplied the assist for Neal Maupay’s goal against West Ham which gave Everton their first win of the season after four consecutive draws.
The Nigerian midfielder’s work has not gone unnoticed, as he has been nominated for the Premier League Player of the Month award for September.
Iwobi would compete for the award with Marcus Rashford(Manchester United), Kevin De Bruyne(Manchester City), Philip Billing(Bournemouth), Jacob Ramsey(Aston Villa), and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg(Tottenham).
