Alex Iwobi insists Everton are “hungry and ready for the fight” as they prepare for a defining Premier League run-in – and believes the strong togetherness in the team and unstinting support of Evertonians can inspire the results required to retain the Club’s top-flight status.
Iwobi was a central part of a wholehearted and courageous Everton display in Sunday’s 240th Merseyside derby at Anfield.
And while Frank Lampard’s team did not have any points to show for their tireless efforts, Acoording to www.betastic.com Iwobi said the nature of the Blues’ performance means the squad will go into Sunday’s clash with Chelsea at Goodison Park with their “heads high” and intent on continuing their strong home form.
Everton have taken seven points from their past three matches at Goodison.
Iwobi, who has completed 90 minutes in each of Everton’s past six Premier League matches, told evertontv: “We are ready for the fight.
“It’s not going to be easy but we’re ready for it.
“We are not going to dwell on this [derby defeat]. Especially with the captain, Seamus, he is always helping us to keep our heads up and go again.
“We need everyone. It’s a team thing and everyone is ready to fight.
“We know where we are. We are going to focus on ourselves, prepare for Chelsea and try to get a result.
“We have great chemistry and great spirit in the team. I’m sure we can get out of this situation.”
