Iwobi, Everton Teammates Attempt To Equal 107-Year-Old Club Record Vs Aston Villa
Alex Iwobi and his Everton teammates will attempt to equal a 107-year-old club record when they battle Aston Villa in the English Premier League on Friday, August 23.

After the opening two matches in this season's Premier League, the Toffees are the only team yet to concede a goal.

Marco Silva's men were held to a goalless draw by Crystal Palace on match day one and beat Watford 1-0 in the last round of matches.

If goalkeeper Jordan Pickford posts his third straight shutout against Villa, they will become the first Everton side to start a top-flight campaign with three consecutive clean sheets since the 1912-1913 season, according to the Liverpool Echo.

Apart from the England glovesman, Michael Keane, Lucas Digne, Yerry Mina and Séamus Coleman have been excellent in defence in the new season.

Iwobi, who was an unused substitute last weekend, will be aiming to make his competitive debut against Aston Villa.
