Everton fans have been reacting to the news that midfielder Alex Iwobi will spend another period on the sidelines due to his latest injury.
The 23-year-old has suffered a hamstring injury that he sustained against Arsenal on Saturday and new boss Carlo Ancelotti expects him to be our for between “two or three weeks”.
Iwobi, who signed from Arsenal for £35m in the summer, was forced off just 11 minutes into their 0-0 draw with his former club and has since been nursing the problem.
