Alex Iwobi and his Everton teammates were outclassed at home by Brighton in their first Premier League game of 2023, losing 4-1 at Goodison Park.
Alex Iwobi was involved in the game, but didn’t make the much needed impact on the game.
It was a performance that further increased the pressure on the entire Everton squad and not just the manager Frank Lampard.
The Toffest welcomed the Seagulls to Goodison Park, hoping to start the new year on positive, but Everton simply capitulated 14 minutes into the game, with Kaoru Mitoma putting Brighton ahead with his fourth goal in six games before the break.
The home fans endured another horrible second half as the visitors scored three times to make it 3-0, courtesy of goals from Evan Ferguson, Solly March and Pascal Gross.
Damarai Gray got a consolation for Everton late on from the spot.
The Toffees have now recorded just one win in their last 10 matches and sit 16th in the Premier League table, a point above the relegation zone.
