Ahead of Everton’s crucial Premier League clash with Manchester United, Super Eagles striker Alex Iwobi has been advised by his manager Frank Lampard to improve on his activity in the final third.

The Nigeria international has been in imperious form this season, providing three assists in four of Everton’s last league games, and aiding them to back-to-back victories after a poor start.

Iwobi’s work rate saw him nominated alongside seven others for the Premier League player of the month for September but lost out to Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford.

Despite all of his brilliance, the 26-year-old is yet to bag himself a goal this season after eight Premier League matches.

Speaking ahead of their crunch clash with Manchester United, Lampard who has been impressed with the Nigerian midfielder’s performances added that he might need to work on his activity in the opponent’s defence area.

“Since I’ve been here he hasn’t changed. He has been a fantastic player for me in whatever position I played him in last year,” Lampard said as per Blue Mersey.

“In the summer I gave pause for thought and how we construct the team as you move forward, and I wanted to move Alex into a more central position regularly — to finish the season he was a wingback at times — because I just felt it would really suit his attributes.

“Then it’s down to him. Of course, having a good team structure really helps any player, but it’s been down to him.

“I’m just delighted he’s getting the recognition he deserves as being one of the top midfield players in the Premier League at the moment. That’s how I feel about him.

“Can he add more to his game? Yes. In and around the final third he can do more because his talent says so. In-game he can do more, he can assist more, maybe score himself a bit more, but I’m not complaining there, he’s been fantastic for us,” Lampard added.

Last season, the former Arsenal midfielder played a crucial role in Everton’s Premier League survival fight, and has so far, picked up from where he stopped.

Lampard will be hoping that his team shows up to the game when they play the Red Devils at Goodison Park on Sunday after back-to-back wins over West Ham and Southampton.
