Aside from the said season, Alex Iwobi scored a total of six goals and provided nine assists in 51 appearances in all competitions which made the 2018-2019 season the best of his football career.

Interestingly, Iwobi has broken his Premier League goalscoring record in the 2023-2024 season thanks to the consolation goal he scored against Wolves on Saturday, March 9.

During the said game, Iwobi scored in the 98th minute but that was too late for Fulham to stage a comeback as the game ended 2-1 in Wolves’ favoured.
