Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti says Alex Iwobi will be fit for the Toffees Premier League against Newcastle United next weekend, reports Completesports.com.
Iwobi has missed Everton’s last five games in all competitions after picking up a hamstring injury in the home clash against his former club, Arsenal last December.
He was replaced by Cenk Tosun in the 11th minute of the goalless draw against the Gunners after picking up the injury.
The Nigerian winger is however back in training, and is in line to make his first appearance under Ancelotti
