It really has not been a good start to the season for Everton so far.
The Toffees were busy in the summer transfer window, spending over £100m on new recruits, with Moise Kean and Fabian Delph amongst those to join. As such, there will have been hopes that the Merseyside outfit could improve on their eighth-placed finish in the Premier League last term.
So far, though, that is beginning to look increasingly unlikely. The Goodison Park side sit 15th and have won just two of their first seven matches. The pressure is already on Marco Silva to turn things around.
Against Manchester City, they were expected to lose, and they eventually did 3-1. Alex Iwobi, one of those new arrivals, came on after six minutes following Theo Walcott’s head injury, but was then subbed off again with 17 minutes left on the clock. That sums up his performance.
The Everton faithful were not happy with the Nigeria international’s performance, and they took to Twitter to share their thoughts. You can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.
Thought iwobi was terrible yesterday, flat on his feet throughout the game.

Can’t believe how bad Iwobi was yesterday. He looked like he’d never played at this level in his life. He was lost! Literally did not know where he was meant to be on the pitch! His touch was shocking and he was weak in the tackle every time.

Iwobi looked well off it, didn’t help Digne enough and at points looked like he was hiding

I think he’s been poor for a few games, doesn’t close down his winger but Iwobi was woeful yesterday and didn’t work as a foil for him
