Alex Iwobi has revealed Everton’s players are thriving off Frank Lampard’s confidence.
The Toffees were unlucky not to take something from Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Manchester City at Goodison Park.
And Iwobi chose to praise Lampard when speaking after the game.
“I’m happy with my performance and grateful for the reception I got from fans when I went off but we wanted the result our performance deserved,” Iwobi told evertontv. “We can be pleased with how we played, though.
“We should have had a penalty. It’s been the talk of the changing room. We’re all shocked but it’s just something we have to get on with. The decision has been made and we have to focus on the next game now.
“The manager has given everyone the confidence that we are a really good team, can be very good on the ball. He just wants us to trust our ability. It’s not just me, we are all thriving off him and enjoying it.
“Personally, the manager’s support gives me the belief that I can go out and express myself and enjoy the games. It really helps me to show what I’ve got. It works for me and it works for the team. Long may that continue.”
