Super Eagles star Alex Iwobi provided an assist as Everton recorded their first Premier League victory of the season by beating West Ham United in a 1-0 scoreline on Sunday afternoon.
The Toffees and the Hammers went into the game at Goodison Park having both accumulated just four points from their opening six matches of the season.
However, Everton were still waiting for their first maximum haul of 2022-23, instead being reliant on a run of four successive draws to avoid being cut adrift in the relegation zone.
Frank Lampard’s side had impressed in the Meresyside derby two weeks ago, holding neighbours Liverpool to a goalless draw to give them confidence ahead of this fixture.
Although Everton did not replicate the standard of that performance, they were still able to get over the line courtesy of Neal Maupay’s goal early in the second half.
Alex Iwobi fizzed a pass into the feet of the summer arrival, who was waiting on the edge of the area, and the Frenchman turned sharply before lashing a volley into the bottom corner from 20 yards.
