Iwobi Targets First League Win With Everton In Two Months Ahead Brentford Clash

Iwobi Targets First League Win With Everton In Two Months Ahead Brentford Clash

Alex Iwobi and his Everton teammates will be hoping to win in the Premier League for the first time since the end of September when they head to West London on Sunday afternoon to face Frank Onyeka’s Brentford.

Everton will enter Sunday’s contest off the back of a 3-0 defeat at Manchester City last weekend, which followed a goalless draw at home to Tottenham Hotspur before the international break.


The Toffees made such an impressive start to the season under new head coach Rafael Benitez, but it has been a tough few weeks for the Merseyside outfit.

Everton have not been victorious in the league since overcoming Norwich City on September 25, while they have lost four of their last five in England’s top flight to drop down the table.

They are still 11th in the division, though, just four points behind sixth-placed Wolverhampton Wanderers, meaning that it would not take a lot for the club to move closer to the European positions.


Newly promoted Brentford have won three, drawn four and lost five of their 12 Premier League matches this season to collect 13 points, which has left them in 14th position in the table heading into the next set of fixtures.

Overall, it has been a positive start to the season for them, but it would be fair to say that their recent form is slightly concerning, having picked up just one point from the last 15 available.

They have not been victorious in the Premier League since the start of October, and they lost four straight games against Chelsea, Leicester City, Burnley and Norwich City between October 16 and November 6.

Meanwhile, Iwobi will be making his 11th league appearance if he gets to feature for Everton on Sunday.

The former Arsenal star has just one goal in the English top flight this season which came in a 2-1 defeat at Wolverhampton Wanderers on November 1st.

And for Onyeka, he will also make his 11th league appearance for Brentford in the current campaign.

The 23-year-old is yet to open his goals account, after his strike in last weekend’s 3-3 draw at Newcastle United was credited to Jamal Lascelles as an own goal.
