Carlo Ancelotti can turn Alex Iwobi into a star of his Everton side by making a daring team call and starting Anthony Gordon against Arsenal this Sunday.

In 27 U23s outings, Gordon has scored eight times and assisted four goals, and is considered by club chiefs to have outgrown the junior grades – and starting him at Arsenal will not only give the talented prospect a chance to show that, but help Iwobi make his £34m transfer a success.

While his output hinders the argument, Iwobi has been one of our most creative players this season with an average 1.4 key balls per 90 league minutes, plus 1.6 successful dribbles, 1.5 shots and 1.6 successful tackles, per WhoScored.

Ancelotti, however, can turn the tide on the 23-year-old’s slack output at the Emirates Stadium this Sunday by moving Iwobi into a more central role, rather than continuing to utilise the Arsenal product as a wide option.

Ancelotti is also said to envisage the academy product playing regular first-team football in the future and is excited to see what he can produce in the senior fold after excelling in the Under 23s.

Iwobi has so far featured just once under the boss, having sustained a hamstring injury at home to the Gunners on the day that Ancelotti was announced as Marco Silva’s permanent successor.

While Gordon may have never started a senior fixture with his 52 minutes of first-team football so far exclusively coming from the bench, reports by Football Insider claim that Ancelotti has been ‘dazzled’ by the 18-year-old’s technical ability in training at Finch Farm.
