 'Iwobi At RWB Reminds Me Of Victor Moses' - Everton, Super Eagles Fans Hail Display Of Nigerian Everton returned to winning ways after suffering three consecutive defeats in the English Premier League by beating Fulham 3-2 at Craven Cottage on Sunday afternoon.

The Toffees were 3-1 up at half time, Dominic Calvert-Lewin with a brace and an additional tally from Abdoulaye Doucoure while Bobby Reid momentarily restored parity for the Cottagers.

In the 68th minute, Ivan Cavaleiro fluffed an opportunity for Fulham to get back in the game when he missed a spot kick but there was a quick response as Chelsea loanee Ruben Loftus-Cheek scored his first Fulham goal via a deflection.

Manager Carlo Ancelotti's tactical masterstroke to deploy Alex Iwobi as a right wing-back paid off as the Nigeria international put in one of his best displays in an Everton shirt and was involved in the build-up to the second goal.

Everton and Nigerian fans were impressed by the performance of Iwobi, especially in the first half, and took to Twitter to praise the number 17.

@NothingbutBoffo : "Iwobi playing like this reminds me if when Chelsea realised Victor Moses could be a wingback".

@Chris__Kringle : "Iwobi playing brilliantly so far but I don't get why playing as a wingback suddenly unlocks this ability to run at a defender when he was allergic to that playing as a winger..."

@zenghishan : "Iwobi: The Evolution to RWB (Victor Moses 2.0). They even have the same hairstyle. But one Sola from Ikorodu believes he should be starting for Arsenal..."

@BILLOblue : "Lets hope yom davies has been drinking what iwobi has and puts a good shift in".

@albie1405 : "Everyone sayin iwobi was good first half so why are they not giving him the ball this half ?"

@AlexMetcalfe79 : "Iwobi been brilliant today Al. Need that out of him week in week out".

@Iancroll1 : "Words you never thought you’d hear yourself say. “Give it to Iwobi”

@TheBiigJay : "Just imagine the uproar if ever Gernot Rohr decides to field Alex Iwobi as a wing-back for @NGSuperEagles. The question is: does he have the technical onion or power to throw such a curve ball?"
