Everton winger Iwobi enjoying switch from Arsenal: But they all laugh at me...

Alex Iwobi says he has been copping stick from his Everton teammates over his heading.

The summer signing from Arsenal has scored in the last two games with consecutive headers.

Not known for his aerial ability, Iwobi says he has been ribbed by his new teammates.

"I don't know what's been happening, they [Everton teammates] laugh at me when I try to head the ball in training,' Iwobi told the official Everton website.

"But the practice has been paying off. I was just trying keep it on target [against Wolves]. I didn't know I could jump that high."

He added: "I have been welcomed really warmly and I want to help my team with goals and assists whenever I can.

"I am enjoying myself and hopefully I will make more memories here.

"Our start has been okay and we will try to take that on after the international break. But there is always room for improvement."
