EPL: Everton boss Lampard delighted in Iwobi and Gray for Forest draw

Everton boss Frank Lampard was delighted with Alex Iwobi for their 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest.

Lampard also highlighted midfield partner Tom Davies.

He said, “I thought Alex Iwobi was fantastic. Receiving it, controlling it and breaking through lines and passing well. The movements of the back three and the angles of trying to play through, especially in the early parts of the game, were really good.

“Some of the performances were very good and players like Tom Davies were integral in the way we were playing. Those are the moments – when we were playing well and opening them up in that first 25 minutes – when it’s about getting that goal, because then the game looks completely different.”

On goalscorer Demarai Gray, he said: “I was really pleased with Demarai’s performance and the goal. Against players that are committed to defend in numbers, you need players that open the game up. Demarai did that with his movement, with his speed and with his one-v-one stuff. The goal was fantastic. It was a great ball from Jordan, there was perfect timing of the run and perfect control on the run, which is tough, and he slotted it in. It was great to see.”
