EPL: Iwobi Subbed Off As Aston Villa Overcome Fulham

Super Eagles midfielder, Alex Iwobi was in action as Fulham lost 3-1 to Aston Villa in Sunday’s Premier League game.

The Nigerian international, who was making his eight appearance, is yet to record a goal in the league this season.

He was substituted in the 82nd minute for Reed.

Villa took the lead in the 27th minute when Youri Tielemans snapped up a ball down the left wing and fired it across the goal, where Fulham defender Robinson turned it into his own net.

  • Iwobi need hard more grit to his game, a midfielder that can’t contribute minimum of 3goals to his team all season is below average if you ask me, with him Everton struggle for two consecutive season, battling with relegation all through and now Fulham is kinda facing the same shit. 
        I frown against this his move because it’s kinda demotion moving from Everton to Fulham, a midfielder shd be able to ship in goals to help his team here and there when in need, reason I will always choose a Frankie Lampard ahead of both Gerard and scholes anytime anyday.
