Iwobi nominated for Player of the Month

22/09/2022 3comments  |  Jump to last

Alex Iwobi's stellar form to start the season has been recognised with his nomination for Premier League Player of the Month for September.

The Nigerian international set a personal benchmark for his performances in the second half of last season when, under new manager Frank Lampard, he finally started to fulfil the potential that persuaded Everton to spend an initial £28m on his three years ago.

And he has carried that forward into the new season, becoming the Blues' most effective and important player in a side that has been improving week on week, culminating in last Sunday's 1-0 win over West Ham United.

Iwobi provided the assist for Neal Maupay to strike early in the second half.

The other nominees for the month are Bournemouth's Philip Billing, Tottenham's Pierre-Emile Højbjerg, Aston Villa's Jacob Ramsey, Manchester City's Kevin de Bruyne and Manchester United's Marcus Rashford.

Hope Alex wins it. Can't comment on the other nominees.

If he doesn't, then just keep playing the way he has, maybe take a few more shots and he will win another month. Really great to see the turnaround and seems a nice guy also.

Congratulations on Alex Iwobi for his almighty turnaround in form and play. I am / was one of his biggest critics but he has had me eating my words for about 6 months now and I wish him well, long may that continue. I am happy to eat Humble Pie!

Good luck, Alex.

Alex, I agree, I have had my fair share of humble pie on this one as well. It's hard to fathom why a player who had become a player of ridicule has suddenly become one of the first on the team sheet.

In comparison to where he was a year ago, his form has been stellar. Somewhere in the back of my mind I remember an interview where he said he thought his best position was No 10. Instead, every manager played him wide until now... he was right, it is his best position.

I hope he wins it... btw, that goal for Nigeria was brilliant, I hope he does that for us!
