However, Iwobi is not only outshining Everton players, but he is also playing better than the best of the best in the Premier League.
The former Arsenal star is playing better than Fernandes, who has been one of Man Utd's best players this season. Iwobi has more goal contributions (three assists) than Fernandes, who has just two goals to his name this season.

Nonetheless, the two players will get a chance to show who is better when Everton host the Red Devils in the Premier League on Sunday night.
