Midfielder Alex Iwobi helped his team Everton maintain their perfect record in this season’s Carabao Cup, after the latest win over Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday.

Iwobi and the Toffees went into the game at the back of their 2-0 shocking home defeat to Sheffield United in the premier league on Saturday.

 

The Nigerian was reinstalled to the starting eleven, along side Sheffield born Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who went on to score both goals of the game.

 

With just six minutes into the encounter, France defender Djibril Sidibe, served a lovely ball to the far post and Calvert-Lewin took one touch before lashing home an emphatic finish into the roof of the net.

 

Everton doubled their lead with another clinical counter three minutes later, Bernard played neat pass in to the path of Alex Iwobi whose pin-point cross was stabbed home by the unmarked Calvert-Lewin.

 

However Wednesday wasted several first-half chances on their own, with another Nigerian Dominic Iorfa the biggest culprit.

 

The youngster headed off target at the back post, before Adam Reach fired straight at Pickford after the ball had fallen for him inside the box.

 

Iwobi has now recorded a goal and a assist in two Carabao Cup games this season.
