But Ruben Neves volleyed home a brilliant strike to equalize for the home side eight minutes later. Michael Keane’s fine header midway through the second half, however, restored the visitors’ lead and proved to be the winner on the night. Iwobi has now contributed a goal and two assists in 15 appearances to Everton’s Premier League cause. The Super Eagles ace also boasts a goal and an assist in the EFL Cup for the Merseyside-based side.
