“Iwobi had a little problem during the training, we didn’t want to take the risk,” Ancelotti was quoted on Everton’s Twitter handle.
Iwobi has been impressive of late for Everton and was instrumental in wins against Arsenal, Chelsea, Leicester and Sheffield United.
Meanwhile, there is good news for the Merseyside club as James Rodriguez makes the bench for the clash against the Hammers.
The Real Madrid on loan star has been out with a calf muscle strain since December last year.
Everton are currently in fourth position on 29 points in the league table.
