Alex Iwobi went missing for Everton during a Premier League game on Sunday after returning from an international break in which he helped the Super Eagles of Nigeria qualify for the World Cup playoffs.
It was a tough outing for Alex Iwobi and Everton as they fell to a heavy defeat at Man City.
The 25-year-old winger came in as a 17 minutes sub to replace Gray, who was forced off after tweaking his groin but failed to make any impact for the Rafael Benítez side.
After losing 3-0 to the Pep Guardiola side, a lot of fans took to their Twitter pages to blast the Super Eagles star, calling him the worst player in the Premier League.
It doesn’t get spoken enough, but £34m for Alex Iwobi is one of the worst deals in Premier League history.

After a clash with Milan Skriniar in the second half of the match, the Super Eagles striker sustained a fractured eye socket and cheekbone
The 22-year-old will now undergo a surgery and may be out for about one month.
Napoli, currently top of the league with just goal difference fell to 3-2 defeat against the Simone Inzaghi side at the San Siro Stadium.
His outstanding man of the match performance was essential in the team’s first win under Claudio Ranieri.
Watford earned a well-deserved 4-1 victory thanks to the 24-year-old forward’s goal in stoppage time.
Emmanuel Dennis has now been directly involved in NINE Premier League goals for Watford this season (4 goals and 5 assists), second only to Mohamed Salah.
Gernot Rohr doesn’t call this Emmanuel Dennis to the Super Eagles of NIGERIA but invites a retired Odion Ighalo instead. Him and Ole go the same coaching school obviously. Cos what madness is this?!
