Nigeria international Alex Iwobi bagged an assist as Everton trashed Brighton 4-2 in their Premier League tie at Goodison Park.

Carlo Ancelotti brought in Iwobi as a 25th-minute substitute to replace Richarlison who is feared to have cupped a suspected ankle injury.


Iwobi did not disappoint as he provided the assist for Everton’s third goal which effectively saw them secure their fourth straight victory in the League and seventh across all competition this season.

It is 51 years since Everton last won their opening four league games. This was arguably the most impressive so far.

The former Arsenal star will hope his performance in Saturday’s game will help his chances in Ancelotti’s subsequent selections even though it was Colombian forward James Rodriguez that grabbed the headlines; with his brace that has shot Everton back to the top spot on the Premier League log.

Yerry Mina got a goal while Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who was called up to the England squad this week was also on target for his sixth goal of the season.
