I think the movement and fluidity of some of the other players is helping to free up space for him, that he should be working himself.

He did play well today, but I'd want to see him do it for 10 games before I believe it's a proper change/adjustment.

I think he was really good on the ball today. Itís his work off it that isnít great. Even today so many times when it was out wide he offered  no support to the wingers, just doesnít seem interested when they have it

For me the big thing is Iwobi is trusted to control the ball.

That enables more players to move in anticipation that they wonít be running backwards straight away.

The game suited him today.

We obviously gave him a game plan and he worked himself into the space that we knew was going to be there.

Also saw more energy so maybe with some genuine competition for places he might move it up a notch.

Wouldn't be averse to seeing the front four move around more anyway and him find himself on the right occasonally for his deliveries. Beats Coleman's final third lottery.

Followed on from midweek where @stirlingblue said, his lateral movement was much improved.

Heís not going to get on the ball on the half way line and start spraying the ball.

But if he can drift wide, his crossing is excellent.

It's a decent weapon he has, I don't know why we don't make better use of it. He had a great reputation for it at Swansea.

I know there is an argument that with only DCL in there he hasn't had a lot to aim for but a quality delivery will always cause problems.

Think itís difficult to move out wide if when we then lose the ball it exposes the middle. 

He does a lot of work (shutting down lanes etc) that wonít show up obviously on a stat.

He's extraordinary off the ball, long distance running machine.

That one he chased down from their corner springs to mind

He was excellent today but he usually has his best performances against sides that play a more open passing game. I expect heíll be good again against Bournemouth but will go missing against Sheffield united.

So much crap written in here.  Why can't you lads just accept that he's a good footballer and he had a great game?  Is there nothing better to do than to cram in excuses and reasons why this represented a blip because he was excellent?  Get behind the team.

   spot on.  I'm surprised to see the amount of posters claiming he is lazy.

We have been on TV 2 games in a row. over here.  4 different pundits and all agreeing that Siggy is a great player and important part of our team... But then again they probably know nothing about football and the Everton way... one of the 4 was Lars Jacobsen by the way
