EPL: What Iwobi said after making Everton debut against Aston Villa

Alex Iwobi, Friday, finally made his first appearance for Everton in their 2-0 defeat to Aston Villa in a Premier League game.

The Super Eagles star left Arsenal for the Merseyside club on a five-year deal in a reported fee of £40million on transfer deadline day.

After making the bench in the Toffees’ 1-0 victory over Watford last weekend, the 23-year-old was handed his first appearance for the Goodison Park outfit, replacing Gylfi Sigurdsson in the 61st minute.

Iwobi would have scored on his debut but was denied by the post with the score still at 1-0.

Writing on Instagram afterwards, he said: “Disappointing result but happy to have made my debut for Everton, We go again, Up the Toffees.”

The Toffees take on Lincoln City in Wednesday’s League Cup outing at Sincil Bank next.
