Super Eagles midfielder, Alex Iwobi will be hoping to be on the starting lineup as Everton face Burnley in today's Premier League clash.
The 25-year-old registered an assist against Southampton as a substitute. A smart header found Abdoulaye Doucoure, and he smashed the ball home.
Iwobi then started against Leeds and looked decent, before scoring against Huddersfield Town in the Carabao Cup.
However, before the international break, the Nigerian international was on the bench against Brighton.
The Toffees – and Benitez in particular – will be under immense pressure to remain in the continental mix heading into the winter months, but with most of their rivals now set to begin the taxing European and domestic period, there is no time like the present for Everton to continue their rich vein of form.
Not since September 2019 have Everton managed to record three home wins on the bounce, and should Benitez manage to steer his side to another success in front of the Goodison Park faithful, he will surely start to win over the impassioned fanbase sooner rather than later.
