Iwobi returns to action, impresses in Everton’s 5-2 win over West Brom
Nigerian international Alex Iwobi returned to action in Everton’s 5-2 drubbing of West Brom on Saturday.
There had been much speculation about his place in the team this season following the addition of James Rodriguez, Abdoulaye Docoure and Allan Marques Lourerio to the squad.
Iwobi was snubbed in the starting line up in Everton’s first match of the season against Tottenham and their midweek EFL tie against Salford City.
However, Ancelloti restored the former Arsenal man into his team against West Brom when
Iwobi came in as a substitute for Calvert Lewin in the 71st minute as the Toffees overran the Baggies.
Goals from Calvert Lewin, James Rodriguez and Michael Jean ensured Everton sealed their second successive win of the season.
