Iwobi: Nigerian midfielder rues Fulham defeat to Wolves

Onana: Cameroon goalkeeper makes promise after impressing in Man United win

Alex Iwobi has rued Fulham’s 2-1 Premier League defeat at Wolverhampton Wanderers, describing it as a missed opportunity to be clinical.

Wolves took a 2-0 second half lead courtesy of Algeria left-back Rayan Ait-Nouri and a Tom Cairney own goal before Iwobi scored the Cottagers’ consolation goal deep in added time.

It was the Nigeria international’s fifth league goal of the season which was his best tally in the top-flight, and gave credit to Fulham manager Marco Silva for giving him confidence.

“It feels like an opportunity missed, we had an opportunity to be clinical, but it wasn’t the case,” Iwobi told the Fulham website.

“They took their chances, and my goal at the end was a bit too late. We lost concentration and focus and we spoke about it after the game. We need to be concentrated for the full ninety minutes. We can’t switch off at this stage, we go again.

“I enjoy playing under the gaffer and he gives me the confidence to keep going and play my football, so hopefully, the next goal will be on the winning side. It’s a bit of good form, and hopefully it can continue.”

Fulham will face Tottenham Hotspur in a league London derby next Saturday.
