Alex Iwobi limps off the pitch in tears after sustaining an ankle injury in a collision with Dutch left-back Tyrell Malacia. The 22-year-old Nigerian was taken off on a stretcher after sustaining what appears to be a serious injury to his ankle following a challenge from Malacia.

It comes after the Toffees’ 3-1 thrashing at the hands of Manchester United on Friday night, which saw fans unfurl banners calling for the club’s board to be sacked as pressure mounts on manager Frank Lampard following a run of poor results.

Next up for the Toffees is Southampton.

With the match level after the half-hour mark, the Toffees were eager to get ahead early on in the third-round FA Cup tie at Old Trafford.

But as Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi went to chase a long ball down the right side of the field as part of a counter-attack, he was brought down by Malacaire.

Speaking after the game, Lampard added: “It’s an ankle injury. We’re hopeful it’s a minor one, but I don’t know how bad it is.”

He left the stadium in crutches.

However, the challenge did not lead to a penalty for the visitors, as the ex-Feyenoord striker won the ball in the tackle cleanly.

As his team-mates swarmed around him to see how bad the injury was, club skipper Seamus Coleman was one of the first on the scene to help. The former Arsenal star made it clear he was in pain as the Toffees medical team ran on to the pitch as he shielded his face with his jersey.

It is unclear how serious the injury is, but it is unlikely he will be available for Saturday’s match against Southampton in what is shaping up to be a relegation battle. Iwobi, 26, has been a key player for the Tofferes this season under Lampard, providing six assists and one goal in 21 appearances so far. He joined the club from Arsenal in 2019 on a one-year contract for a fee of £26,7million, with a view to staying until 2024.
