Alex Iwobi was named in Everton’s starting line-up for their match against Southampton on Sunday, much to the dismay of some supporters.
All in all, it was a very disappointing day at the office for the Toffees. They went into the match on top of the Premier League table and unbeaten, but they were on the end of a 2-0 defeat by the Saints as James Ward-Prowse and Che Adams found the back of the net. Not only that, Lucas Digne was sent off late on for a dangerous tackle, leaving the Toffees to struggle with ten men at the end of the clash.
Iwobi’s display will certainly have done him no favours in the long-term. The Nigeria international managed just 45 minutes before being hooked at half-time. He lost possession 13 times, which in one half is very disappointing, and he spent most of the game as a passenger.
Should Everton sell Iwobi?
The Everton fans were clearly far from happy with his display, and they took to social media platform Twitter to share their displeasure.

That should be the last we see of iwobi for a while. Utter garbage today,lost the ball time after time and looked like bambi on ice. No confidence.

How do you coach a player like Alex Iwobi?
What does Ancelotti see in him than can be beneficial to the side?

Throw Iwobi and Sigurdsson into that and you’ve got a full on banquet. Cart horses.

Iwobi terrifies me – he likes too many touches and loses the ball too often. I do wonder what Carlo sees in him. Yes deffo need to sort out some back ups in January.
