Fulham’s Alex Iwobi has cemented his place in the Premier League record books! In a recent match against Newcastle United.

Alex Iwobi played the entire 90 minutes, pushing his total Premier League playing time to a staggering 16,289 minutes. This achievement surpasses the previous record held by legendary midfielder John Mikel Obi, who clocked in at 16,218 minutes.

Iwobi’s journey to the top began with Arsenal in 2015. Since then, he’s consistently featured for his clubs, racking up valuable minutes on the pitch. This season alone, the 27-year-old has been a key player for Fulham, making 24 appearances and scoring five goals.

While Mikel Obi may have held the record for most minutes, his career boasts a cabinet full of trophies. During his impressive 11-year stint with Chelsea, Obi secured two Premier League titles, four FA Cups, and the prestigious Champions League trophy in 2012.


This record-breaking feat is a testament to Iwobi’s dedication and consistency in the Premier League. As he continues his career, it will be exciting to see if he can add even more minutes and potentially challenge Mikel Obi’s legacy with future achievements.
