Alex Iwobi was at the heart of Everton’s midfield and stood out despite his side’s loss to Chelsea on Saturday in the Premier League.

Jorginho scored the only goal of the game from the spot to hand Chelsea their first win in five years at Goodison Park.

Iwobi who has played his way into Frank Lampard’s first eleven was all over the pitch and got cheers from the home fans whenever he was on the ball.

The visitors landed a significant blow before the end of the opening period when Koulibaly’s intelligent pass from the left flank found Chilwell in space inside the penalty area and, in a desperate last-ditch attempt to win back possession, Abdoulaye Doucoure brought down the Chelsea full-back, with referee Craig Pawson immediately pointing to the penalty spot.

Jorginho stepped up to convert from 12 yards, sending Pickford the wrong way to land a cruel blow after an incredibly tight first half.
