Back Soon

The Nigeria international was taken off in the 11th minute against former club Arsenal last month with a hamstring injury, and he has been absent ever since.

However, the 23-year-old’s latest update suggests he could be return to the pitch in the near future, which will be a boost for manager Carlo Ancelotti who has barely seen the £34m addition in action.

Does Iwobi have a starting XI spot in an Ancelotti team?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Iwobi has hardly hit the ground running since his move to Goodison Park either, scoring two goals and providing one assist in 20 appearances in all competitions for the Merseyside outfit.

It will also be interesting to see where the experienced former Napoli boss sees the African fitting into his starting XI too, with Duncan Ferguson starting him on the left in his final caretaker match in charge against the Gunners.

Call yourself an Everton expert? How much did each of these January signings cost?

How much did Everton pay to sign Theo Walcott from Arsenal?

Iwobi has previously said that he prefers to play through the middle in more of a No.10 role, but if Ancelotti sticks with the 4-4-2 system that brought three points against Brighton on Saturday, it will be difficult for that to happen.

In other Everton news, the Toffees can do better than 27-year-old who lost possession 21 times in the win against Brighton
