Some Everton fans have been left blasting the display of Alex Iwobi as they went out of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night.
The Goodison Park faithful dropped out of the third round to Queens Park Rangers after a penalty shootout in which Tom Davies missed a decisive spot kick.
Should Everton cut their losses on Iwobi?
Lucas Digne and Andros Townsend had cancelled out two goals from Charlie Austin, but it was not enough as the Merseyside club crashed out of the competition.
Iwobi failed to take his chance to impress Rafa Benitez, as he lost out on seven of his duels, the joint-most out of his teammates, and also lost possession of the ball on no fewer than on 13 different occasions (Sofascore).
Given that he only had a mere 41 touches of the ball in total, the second-fewest out of any outfield Toffee to have started the game behind Andre Gomes (Sofascore), the former Arsenal man lost it roughly every 3.1 touches on average.
Everton fans on Iwobi display
These Blues blasted his performance on Twitter, with one EFC supporter even going as far as to claim that he is a ‘fraud’:
“Fair play that’s a tidy goal. Think VAR could’ve been interested in the offside call. Right what was needed. Iwobi dreadful finishing a few mins before”
“Iwobi really is pretty average. Clear through 1 on 1, bottled it! Bang average player. Left-back showing him how to do it”
“How has Iwobi not scored that? He’s dire”
“The most baffling thing I’ve encountered in my life is people who can defend Alex Iwobi with a straight face, he’s absolutely useless.”
“Shocking performance mate, that miss by Iwobi was embarrassing”
“Iwobi is an absolute fraud of a footballer. Needs binning off ASAP”
