The Super Eagles midfielders put in good performances for their respective clubs, with Iwobi having the last laugh at St. Marys.

It was a head-to-head battle between Aribo and Iwobi

Everton has won back-to-back games in the Premier League for the first time this season after a come-from-behind 2-1 win at Southampton.

Nigerian internationals Joe Aribo and Alex Iwobi went head-to-head as the Saints hosted Everton on Saturday.

Both players were relatively good for their teams but it was Iwobi and his teammates who left St. Mary's with three points.

Aribo scored his second goal of the season while his compatriot Iwobi grabbed an assist for the Toffees.

Former Rangers star Aribo scored his second goal of the season since his move to Southampton against Everton.

The 25-year-old kept his calm and fired in a wonderful left-footed effort to open the scoring at St Mary's.

However, his goal only lasted three minutes before the Toffees equalised via defender Conor Coady.

Aribo's compatriot Iwobi will complete the comeback when he assisted Dwight McNeil, who fired in majestically to seal the win.

The win sees Iwobi and Everton continue their revival with back-to-back wins while Southampton has now lost their last three matches.
