Iwobi Injured As Everton, Arsenal Share The Spoils At Goodison Park

Iwobi limped off in the 11th minute and was replaced by Cenk Tosun.

Ancelotti was confirmed as Marco Silva’s replacement before kick-off, meaning Duncan Ferguson and Freddie Ljungberg remained in caretaker charge of Everton and Arsenal for the last time.

However, there was little for the new men to get excited about, with Jordan Pickford’s smart reflex stop from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s close-range shot six minutes after half-time the closest either side came to scoring.

  • And there I was expecting Iwobi to bite the fingers that used to feed with him by hurting Arsenal for only his second goal of the season.

    Unfortunately it was not not meant to be as the Super Eagles hard working midfielder had to make way earlier than expected due to injury.

    This is wishing Iwobi a speedy recovery.
