English Premier League Preview for Super Eagles Stars
With club football returning this weekend after the international break, football fans all over Nigeria are eagerly anticipating top performances from Nigerian internationals around the globe.
With this in mind AfroFooty takes a look at some Super Eagles stars representing clubs in glamorous English Premier League's weekend round of matches.
Dele Bashiru – Watford FC
Dele moved to Watford on a free from Man city this summer but he’s yet to make any premier league appearance for Watford this Season.
Watford has started the season woefully with just one point from 4 games which has led to the sacking of Javi Garcia as the Hornets boss.
The return of Quique Sanchez Flores will obviously open the door for Dele Bashiru to impress the new gaffer and hopefully be a regular for Watford during the course of the season.
Isaac Success – Watford FC
Isaac Success has featured twice from the bench this season, racking up just 34 minutes in total.
It’s been a rough path for Success since his move to the premier league in 2016, injuries, fitness issues, poor form and disciplinary issues has hampered success progress, breaking in into the first team and becoming a pivotal player for Watford.
Success who has found the back of the net twice for Watford in four years would need to improve his
goal scoring ratio, stay fit and stay out of troubles if he would want to feature week in, week out for Watford.
Wilfred Ndidi – Leicester City
Nigeria and Leicester city midfield anchor Ndidi has been a consistent performer for both club and country in recent times. Ndidi, who joined Leicester from Genk in January 2016, when fully fit would be among the first names on Brendan Rogers first team line up.
Ndidi, who is a doubt for this weekend fixture against Manchester United after withdrawing from Nigeria’s squad with a hamstring problem, will be hoping to return to full fitness as soon as possible and also keep the Nigerian flag flying high in England.
Kelechi Iheanacho – Leicester city
It’s not been a good year for Kelechi, out of favour at Leicester, dropped from the 2019 AFCON squad and has dropped down the pecking order for both club and country.
Kelechi would need to improve his form with just 4 goals since his move from Man City in 2017, and just one goal in the last two seasons.
Hopefully, this season would Kelechi would wow us with some spectacular performances that would see him being called for club and country.
Alex Iwobi – Everton
Iwobi has started his Everton career in astonishing fashion scoring two goals in two starts for Everton, with so much to prove after his move from Arsenal this summer, Iwobi will be determined to prove the critics wrong by becoming an essential member of Marco Silva’s Squad.
The Toffees visits Bournemouth this weekend and Iwobi will be hoping to continue his good starts to life at Goodison
