During the game which saw the Goodison Park club crash out on penalties, the Nigerian picked up a weak 4/10 performance rating (as per Liverpool Echo), which left supporters to fume over the 23-year-old.

Should Everton attempt to recoup some of the £34-million transfer fee for Alex Iwobi in January?
No, he can still improve
Yes, was a waste of money
So far this term, the former Arsenal attacker has featured in 19 games in league and cup, in which he has scored two goals and assisted once (as per Transfermarkt).
that’s a bit disrespectful on turkeys mate. Iwobi was very poor tonight

What do we think?
While the Nigerian has shown definite signs of promise in an Everton shirt, he has done it nowhere near consistently enough. He does have talent but it needs to be much more frequent for him to be worthy of a consistent starting spot.
