Carlo Ancelotti suffers blow just hours into Everton career as Alex Iwobi limps off with hamstring injury vs Arsenal

CARLO ANCELOTTI suffered his first blow as Everton manager when Alex Iwobi limped off injured against his old club Arsenal.

The forward went down holding his hamstring just before the 15 minute mark at Goodison Park and was immediately replaced by Cenk Tosun.

Ancelotti was confirmed as Toffees boss little more than an hour before kick-off on Merseyside.

And the Italian will be disappointed to see the 23-year-old hobble down the tunnel.
