Many Everton fans were left slamming the display of Alex Iwobi despite their club’s 5-4 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup on Wednesday night.
The Merseyside club eventually came out on top in what was a pretty hectic game from start to finish, with Bernard scoring a fine winner in the first half of extra time at Goodison Park to book Carlo Ancelotti’s team a place in the quarter-final stage of the competition.
Should Everton cut their losses on Iwobi?
While there were some very good performances in a Toffees shirt on the night, Iwobi’s flattered to deceive.
The former Arsenal man lost out on no fewer than six of his duels in the match, and also failed to record a single shot, successful dribble, key pass or accurate cross, all while losing possession of the ball 14 times, the sixth-most out of any of his teammates, despite coming off in the 70th minute (Sofascore).
Everton fan reaction to Iwobi display
These Blues slammed his performance on Twitter, with one EFC supporter even going as far as to call the Nigeria international ‘useless’:
“Iwobi seemed to have gone missing again in recent games – with Coleman playing so well last night, could he be a RW option against Fulham?”
“Should have him playing instead of Iwobi, he’s useless. Thought Coleman was excellent going forward”
“Yeah agree. Iwobi just doesn’t have enough quality to take us to the levels required. I’d love us to get a rapid RW and RB and quality GK and we won’t be too far away then from where we want to be. Centre halves still trouble me, they’re not aggressive enough for me.”
“He is perfect for a 4-3-3 mate isn’t he, Richarlison needs to be put in the middle and Iwobi needs binning off, definitely need a couple of wide players in the summer”
“Not one of Mina’s better games, Iwobi hardly in the game…the rest gave their all…Be hard to drop Olsen after that too. Tom Davies best game in a blue shirt”
“Completely forgot Iwobi played, he was terrible tonight”
