Carlo Ancelotti has declared Nigerian forward Alex Iwobi fit for Everton's Premier League fixture against Leicester City.
The 24-year-old was not involved in the Toffees 3-0 FA Cup triumph over Sheffield Wednesday at Goodison Park on Sunday, January 24.
He has really been enterprising for the Merseyside outfit this campaign having scored twice and creating three other assists across competitions.
The Italian-born manager also confirmed the availability of Lucas Digne for the meeting while Ivorian star Jean-Philippe Gbamin will not be available for the clash as he continues with his recovery. Ancelotti said in a press conference as reported by Goal.
"We have Digne and Iwobi back, and we have out Delph, Allan, Gbamin, and Nkounkou. The others are all good.
"We don't have a lot of injuries at this moment because Delph has started to train with us, so practically he is back. We have only Allan, Gbamin, and Nkounkou that can recover soon. The squad are all in good condition."
Everton are currently sixth on the table with 32 points in 17 matches - eight points behind league leaders Manchester United.
And the former Chelsea handler will be hoping the ex-Arsenal attacker will further help his side finish well at the end of the season.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Super Eagles star Alex Iwobi was on the score-sheet in Everton’s hard fought 2-1 win over Wolves in the English Premier League on Tuesday night, January 12.
It was the Nigerian’s first goal of the season as he put his side ahead as early as the 6th minute as he completed a well-stringed pass from the team.
Iwobi got his first league goal since September 2019 which featured some lovely build-up after jabbing home Lucas Digne’s pass.
