Watch: Alex Iwobi sends two Liverpool stars for a kebab with outrageous skill


Alex Iwobi has not had an easy time of things at Everton, but he showcased his incredible skills during the Merseyside derby. 

After signing from Arsenal for £35million in 2019, Iwobi has struggled to hold down a place in the first team at Goodison Park.

However, the Nigeria international made an eye-catching cameo against Liverpool and capped his display with an outrageous piece of skill in the closing stages.

He appeared to have taken the ball into a dead end, with Andy Robertson and Georginio Wijnaldum crowding him out on the right-wing.

But, Iwobi flipped the script on the Liverpool pair. Turning his back to them, he pulled a unique-looking flick to take both players out of the game. Perhaps feeling ridiculed, Robertson promptly fouled the midfielder.
