2. A number of Everton fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Alex Iwobi’s performance as the Toffees beat Arsenal 2-1 at Goodison Park this weekend.

Nigeria winger Alex Iwobi is determined to make his stay at Everton a successful one.

Iwobi ended a 17-year connection with Arsenal when he moved to Everton in August last year.

The 24-year-old didn’t make much impact at the club last term and his beginning to this term was delayed by a strained left harmstring.

But he has become a regular feature in Carlo Ancelotti’s in recent weeks.

“Every day I try to prove to myself I should be here, that I should be playing for Everton,” Iwobi told Everton’s website.

“That I should be in the starting XI. That I should be representing my country.


“I always have that motivation.

“Especially because of what my family went through for me to get where I am.

“It gives me that hunger to improve myself and I work every day to try to do that.

“I had a lot of downs growing up. Moments when I was told I wasn’t good enough, times when I was almost released by Arsenal.

“I want to fight for not just me but the hundreds of thousands of Evertonians and the people who follow and support me.

“I feel I owe it to them to give 100 per cent every day.

“And I always want to do well for my family.

“Everything I do is for them.”
