Some Everton fans have been slamming the display of Alex Iwobi against Arsenal in their club’s 2-1 win in the Premier League yesterday evening.
The former Gunner failed to impress some of the Goodison Park faithful against his old team, losing possession of the ball no fewer than 14 times in the game, the fourth highest out of any of his teammates (Sofascore).
Should Everton cut their losses on Iwobi?
He also failed to win any of his duels in the match, and also never managed to record a single shot on target or a successful dribble, earning him a quite measly 6.6 overall rating on Sofascore, the joint-fourth lowest score out of all of his teammates to have started the clash for the Merseyside club.
His defensive performance was also criticised by some Toffees, as he did not manage to make an interception or tackle (Sofascore), as he left Mason Holgate exposed on a number of occasions on the right flank.

Iwobi not doing enough defensively. We’re far too open down that side.

Iwobi has to track Saka better. Holgate coming out to mark Tierney and it’s leaving Saka free and holgate facing a 2 on 1

Carrying Iwobi here, get Coleman or Gordon on.
