James Rodriguez and Everton smile again with tough win at Fulham

French striker Lacazette played with Iwobi at Arsenal, and he has compared him to former Inter Milan and Brazil worldwide right-back/right wing-back Maicon, while Yannick Bolasie has praised him.

Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti said they have to plug their leaky defence after snapping a run of three straight defeats with a narrow win at Fulham.

New Super Eagles defender Kevin Akpoguma played 90 mins as TSG Hoffenheim were held to a 3-3 Bundesliga draw against VfB Stuttgart at the PreZero Arena while Jamilu Collins was cautioned in the 61st minute in Paderborn 2-0 win over St Pauli in second division of the Bundesliga.

According to WhoScored, Iwobi had a pass accuracy of 87.5%, took 75 touches, attempted five dribbles, made two interceptions and two clearances, and put in five crosses.

It may be a little too early for Iwobi to be genuinely compared to Maicon, a 73-time Brazil global who boasts European giants AS Roma, Manchester City, Inter Milan and Monaco among his former clubs.

"I think it's flawless for Iwobi".

"In the first half, he was our out-ball, and you could see just watching from the TV screen he was maybe a little scared to go too far forward, and he had his defensive mind on a little bit". I played with Maicon at Man City as well, who had great equity in the box.

But after an inconsistent start to life at Merseyside, Iwobi gave one of his finest performances in an Everton shirt after impressing as a makeshift right wing-back against the Cottagers.

"Got the result... DCL is that guy, is back, Digne levels....but Iwobi needs those plaudits today was different class first half", Bolasie tweeted.
