Iwobi may be ruled out until 2020

Iwobi to be sidelined till New Year Iwobi to be sidelined till New Year

Everton FC's Alex Iwobi has been ruled out of football involvement and could be out until the new year after being forced of last game against Arsenal.

Everton manager, Carlo Ancelotti, gave the update on Iwobi's injury ahead of the Premier League boxing day clash with Burnley due to hamstring injury.

The 23-year-old has since been nursing the problem and may not play a further role for the Toffees this year as he is set to be sidelined for about ‘two to three weeks.’

“Alex Iwobi is not going to play in the next games,” Ancelotti told Everton TV.

“He is going to rest for two or three weeks, then start [training] with the team.”

Iwobi has made 20 appearances across all competitions, scoring two goals since leaving the Emirates Stadium last summer.

Everton, who are winless in their last three games, will hope to halt that unimpressive form under their new manager at Goodison Park.
