Iwobi powered Gylfi Sigurdsson's cross to the back of the net in the 12th minute as the Toffees edged their visitors 3-2 win at Goodison Park.

During his stint at the Emirates Stadium, the Super Eagles star scored 15 goals across all competitions and only one came via his head.

After helping Everton secure a 3-2 win over Wolves - their second league win of the season - Iwobi will shift his focus on helping Nigeria during their international friendly match against Ukraine on September 10.
