“I thought Alex Iwobi was fantastic,” Evertonfc.com quoted Lampard as saying.

“Receiving it, controlling it and breaking through lines and passing well.

“The movements of the back three and the angles trying to play through, especially in the early parts of the game, were really good.”

Iwobi has scored 10 goals in 58 games for the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

Everton are currently 16th in the Premier League with one point after matchday three.
