EPL: Iwobi subbed on as Everton lose; Man City thrash Watford 8-0

Super Eagles forward, Alex Iwobi was in action for Everton as they fell to a 2-0 home defeat against Sheffield United in the Premier League on Saturday.

Iwobi was introduced to the game in the 55th minute but a wasteful Toffees side could not match the zeal of their visitors.

A 40th-minute Yerry Mina own goal and a 79th-minute Lys Mousset strike condemned Everton to their firs defeat at Goodison Park this season.

Champions Manchester City bounced back from last weekend’s defeat at Norwich City to thrash Watford 8-0 at the Etihad Stadium.

City scored five goals in the first 18 minutes of the encounter, with David Silva, Sergio Aguero, Riyad Mahrez, Nicolas Otamendi and Bernando Silva all scoring.

Bernando Silva completed a hattrick in the second half, scoring in the 48th and 60th minutes to put the hosts 7-0 up, before Kevin de Bruyne sealed the rout 5 minutes to time.

Manchester United’s 9-0 win over Ipswich in 1995 remains the biggest victory in the Premier League era but City become only the seventh team to win a top-flight game by an eight-goal margin in the modern era.

Elsewhere, Burnley defeated Norwich 2-0 in another Premier League encounter that happened concurrently.

A brace by Chris Wood in four first-half minutes sealed victory for Burnley at Turf Moor.
