​Everton winger Iwobi: I'm giving more effort here than at Arsenal

Everton winter Alex Iwobi has spoken about how he rejuvenated his career with the Merseyside club.

Iwobi was seen as a floundering talent at Arsenal, but he has been impressive since arriving at Everton.

It is especially the case since Carlo Ancelotti took over as manager. The 23-year-old spoke about what has changed.

"This is a whole different game for me," Iwobi told evertontv.

"The Evertonians here, not just the players but the fans and staff… everyone wants to give 100 per cent.

"I am enjoying that side of the game. It has made me a new man in that sense.

"I wasn't particularly like that [before coming to Everton] but I have had to buy into it and show more hunger when I am playing and towards the fans.

"It is good for me. Here, I have to focus tactically when we do not have the ball.

"I have to track back a bit more, carry out more defensive duties.

"No matter who I play for, I give 100 per cent.

"Everton are making me do that and I am enjoying it."
