EPL: Lampard reacts as Iwobi’s error leads to 2-1 defeat for Everton

Everton manager Frank Lampard defended Alex Iwobi after his gaffe cost West Ham a 2-1 victory on Sunday.

The Hammers took the lead at London Stadium courtesy to Aaron Cresswell’s magnificent free-kick, but the Toffees equalized in the second half thanks to Mason Holgate.

Iwobi, on the other hand, gave up the winning goal by failing to control Michael Keane’s ball.

West Ham seized on the lost ball, and Jarrod Bowen pushed it into an open net.

Lampard has, however, chosen not to blame Iwobi for the mistake, but praised him for his versatility.
