The Nigeria international is in the news for the wrong reason and he has not been spared by irritated football followers on social media.
Football fans have hit out at Alex Iwobi for his role in Everton’s 1-1 draw with Tottenham Hotspur in Sunday’s Premier League showdown.
After a goalless first half at Goodison Park, Harry Kane-less Spurs took a 63rd-minute lead after Dele Alli capitalised on Iwobi’s sloppy pass.
63 – Loose pass from Iwobi gifts us possession and @dele_official shows great composure to give us the lead!

However, the game ended all squared thanks to Cenk Tosun’s 97th-minute equaliser in the keenly contested affair.
Nonetheless, the Nigerian did not escape the fury of fans who were displeased with his poor outing despite seeing every minute of action.
Below are some of the reaction selected from Twitter.
Iwobi should never play again

Was a shocking giveaway by Iwobi for Alli’s goal but Holgate’s defending there is beyond hideous ?

You can take the man out of Arsenal

£40m for Iwobi. Gets me every time. ???

Just a quick reminder that Everton paid us £60m for Iwobi and Walcott. Everton Football Club appreciation tweet.

Seriously, Iwobi and Walcott literally represent us breaking into Goodison Park and stealing 55 MILLION in cash.

‘Mistake by Iwobi.’ Still haunts me. Glad we sold.
