Nigerian Midfielder Alex Iwobi has revealed Everton still picked positives from their weekend 0-3 loss to Manchester City in the Premier League.
In a chat with EvertonTV, Iwobi hailed their ability to create champions against City who he tagged “best team” in the Premier League at the moment as a positive lesson as they prepare for crucial games vs Wolves and Bournemouth in their battle for survival.
“It was always going to be a hard game against one of, if not, the best team in the Premier League right now,” Iwobi told Evertontv.
“We can’t be too down. We have to take the positives, we still managed to create chances. We just weren’t able to take them.
“They scored two goals and a free-kick that you can’t do anything about. We’ll learn the lessons and go again.”he added.
Everton face Wolves this weekend before ending the campaign against Bournemouth. In their battle against relegation, the Toffees will fight for maximum points in both games.
“We just have to take the positives [from the City game],” Iwobi continued.
“We created a few chances against them and I’m sure against Wolves and Bournemouth we will be able to do it again.
“We had a big high against Brighton, and we aren’t going to stay too disappointed about this result against Manchester City.
Football comes around really fast, and we have another game coming up soon, we will have to prepare for that.”
Despite watching their team fall 0-3 to Manchester City, Everton fans stayed on to the end to applaud the players at Goodison Park, Iwobi admits the solidarity will motivate the players to fight for them and keep the club in the Premier League.
“The fact they are sticking behind us even with a disappointing result shows what the Everton fans are like and how much they care about the Club. It’s only right we fight for them – fight for us as well.
“Everton is a club that has to stay in the Premier League, and we want to be part of that history – one that stays up and never goes down,” the Nigerian Midfielder said.
