Everton fans slam performance of Alex Iwobi – before goal secures vital point

Everton supporters lashed out at Alex Iwobi for his role in Jamie Vardy's strike during the first-half of their clash against Leicester.

Having given the ball away to James Maddison shortly after Leicester equalised, Vardy was put through on goal with the veteran forward then rounding Jordan Pickford to slot into an empty net.

With the Toffees behind in the contest despite their ideal start, fans feared relegation while slamming the man they believed to be most at fault.

One comment said referencing his 2019 move from Arsenal: "£35 million for a pile of dog poo. Alex Iwobi."

A second added: "Actually can’t remember Iwobi picking out an Everton shirt."

A third agreed: "Iwobi gives the ball away again how many timessssssss!!"

A fourth posted: "Love to see how many goals conceded this season have come from Iwobi giving the ball away reckon it's double figures."

A fifth concluded: "Iwobi causing us tonnes of problems. Poor passing, weak tackling."

However, Iwobi would go on to score a second goal for Sean Dyche's men to join Caglar Soyuncu and Dominic Calvert-Lewin on the scoresheet as the spoils were shared.

The point leaves Everton second-bottom of the table with four games to go, with Nottingham Forest, Leeds and Leicester all a point better off on 30.

The fixture was a riveting one with both sides in desperate need of points, with the pressure taking a toll on both Maddison and Calvert-Lewin.

With the midfielder missing from the spot thanks to Pickford doing his homework, Calvert-Lewin missed a huge chance to score despite already scoring from the spot himself.
