Iwobi has featured in 20 games for the Toffees this campaign and has scored two goals and provided three assists, amid other dazzling displays.

The versatile forward has been with the Toffees since the summer of 2019 when he left his boyhood club Arsenal, where he spent more than a decade.

Leicester are on an eight-game unbeaten run, having last tasted defeat against Leicester in December and will look to extend the fine performances.
