NigeriaIwobi and his fellow Toffees were in superb form as they recorded their best result of the season.

He featured in that game from start to finish and picked up an assist, his seventh of the season in the league, but Doucoure and McNeil stole the show with a brace each.

This weekend, they will have their hands full when defending champions and league leaders, Manchester City and Erling Haaland, visit Goodison Park.
