Aston Villa vs Everton (8pm) Iwobi needs time to get fitter—Silva

There are slim chances of Alex Iwobi making his debut for Everton tonight following the revelation by Toffees boss, Marco Silva that the Super Eagles’ star needed more to get fitter.

Iwobi needs time to get fitter---Silva
Iwobi may not be in action today against Villa

Iwobi was on the bench last weekend when Everton won their first match of the English Premier League season with a 1-0 victory against Watford.
Ahead of tonight’s EPL game between Aston Villa and Everton at the Villa Park, the Portuguese manager was not sure if Iwobi would play any part in the match since the Nigerian is not in top shape because he didn’t take part in pre-season training before his move to The Toffees on deadline day.
Silva has hinted that even if the Iwobi is going to be considered at all, he may just come on as a second-half substitute against Villa.
When asked if Iwobi is looking forward to making his debut Silva told reporters on Thursday afternoon, Silva said: ”Yes of course! For sure he’s looking forward to it, and we all are.
“But he started really late, just now it’s his second week working with the team and he didn’t have a pre-season. We have to take care of the situation giving him enough time to get fitter.
“Of course if we need him during the games he is available to help us. Not for 90 minutes, but he’s getting better. If I decide, he’ll be ready to help.”
