Everton midfielder Alex Iwobi has now posted a four-word reaction to Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Fulham at Goodison Park.

The Blues welcomed Marco Silva’s side for the opening fixture of the Premier League, but it was a similar story to last season for Everton.

Indeed, despite creating a host of chances, Everton couldn’t find the net, with £15m forward Neal Maupay and last season’s hero Abdoulaye Doucoure, both guilty of wastefulness.

Nigerian international Alex Iwobi also could have found himself on the scoresheet were it not for Fulham goalkeeper Bernd Leno, and the Everton midfielder has now posted a four-word message following the defeat.

Taking to Twitter, the 26-year-old said: “Learn & Go Again.”

Iwobi is right, Everton must go again and try to learn from Fulham mistakes

Everton went into Saturday’s fixture without forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin and last season’s top goalscorer Dwight McNeil, while loan signing Arnaut Danjuma started the game on the bench.

Indeed, the Toffees look set to complete the loan signing of Leeds United star Jack Harrison, who could be a shrewd signing for Sean Dyche.

However, Saturday’s defeat highlighted that Everton’s lacklustre finishing remains a prevalent issue at Goodison Park, and one that has left Sean Dyche ‘very frustrated’.

Speaking with BBC Sport after the game, the Everton boss said: “Very frustrated with the outcome. We played well and the things to bring to a performance were there.

We limited them to no chances in the first half, while creating nine or 10 chances ourselves. The mix of a performance as good, but we have to score a goal.”

Former Everton defender Alan Stubbs was also frustrated, and asked on Twitter, ‘What’s changed’ following Saturday’s loss, with the club still in desperate need of a centre-forward.

Everton travel to Villa Park next for what will no doubt be a tough test for Sean Dyche’ side, so hopefully Iwobi and his teammates will learn from Saturday’s frustrating defeat.
