Nigerian international Alex Iwobi produced another brilliant performance in the Premier League as Everton shared the spoils with Leeds United on Tuesday, August 30.

The 26-year-old was phenomenal in the holding midfield role as he helped Frank Lampard's side secure a vital point at Elland Road.

Iwobi was the architect of the opener. He brilliantly set up Anthony Gordon with a slick through pass to put the Toffees ahead in the 17th minute.

Aside from the assist, Iwobi was also impressive defensively. The ex-Arsenal man recorded two tackles, four interceptions, and two clearances.

Impressed by Iwobi's dazzling display, some fans have taken to the microblogging app Twitter to praise the Super Eagles star.
