A surprising incident in which Iwobi’s jersey was thrown back at him at Bournemouth overshadowed what was another decent showing for the Everton man.
The Nigerian could have set up a goal for the visitors but Nathan Patterson’s miss with 20 minutes remaining saw the Toffees squander their finest chance of scoring.
Iwobi has now fashioned five big chances in 2022-23, already surpassing his numbers in previous seasons on Merseyside.
The midfielder’s next assist will take him to six, matching his assists number in his final season at Arsenal in 2018-19.
Despite the supposed humiliation at the Vitality Stadium, Iwobi can be proud of his performances preceding the World Cup interlude.
