Alex Iwobi is hoping to cause Carlo Ancelotti a headache as he seeks regular playing time at the club this season.
The 24-year-old started his first game of the season on Wednesday, contributing a goal and an assist as Everton cruised to a 5-2 win over Fleetwood Town in the third round of the Carabao Cup.
Iwobi: “[The performance] shows the confidence and the quality we have, and the strength in depth. We were able to rotate the team and got a performance so it shows we have a good team for the season.
“They changed their formation and became more attacking [after the break] but we were able to withstand it and go to the next round. We’re targeting every competition. We now move on to the next round and hopefully we can beat West Ham as well.
“It’s good experience for me to build fitness and I’m ready for all competitions so it’s good of the manager to give me this opportunity.
“It’s always good to score but the main thing is the team goes through to the next round. I’m glad I was able to help.
“Everyone wants to play and I’m trying my best to play in all competitions – hopefully I can give the manager a headache and play as much as I can!”
