Carabao Cup: Iwobi Bag Assist In Everton's Away Victory

Former Arsenal winger, Alexander Iwobi was a provider for Everton in their morale boosting 0-2 victory over Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday Night.

Iwobi 23, was on display for the entire duration in the mid-week road adventure for the Toffees.
The attacking approach early in the game paid dividends after Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored twice in four minutes to guide the Premier League side into the fourth round of the Carabao Cup and ease the pressure on the Everton manager Marco Silva.

After defeat by Sheffield United on Saturday left them 14th in the Premier League and Silva in the spotlight, it was the turn of the boyhood Blades fan Calvert-Lewin to take centre stage at Hillsborough.

The 22-year-old struck after six minutes following a counter-attack which saw him cushion Djibril Sidibe’s ball and fire home off the underside of the crossbar.

There was a gleeful celebration in front of the Kop before he slotted home Alex Iwobi’s low ball from close range to double the score and essentially seal the tie with 80 minutes remaining.

Cameron Dawson denied Calvert-Lewin a hat-trick late in the first half but the damage had already been inflicted on Garry Monk’s team.
