With the quartet of Samuel Chukwueze, Victor Osimhen, Aaron Samuel and Anthony Ujah shinning, Futbalgalore.com selects the best XI from top action over a long weekend.
Daniel Akpeyi [Kaizer Chiefs]
The Kaizer Chiefs ‘keeper had to be on his toes from start to finish in the 1-0 win over Black Leopards. Outstanding.
Semi Ajayi [West Brom]
Tackles, interceptions, blocked shots and clearances: the big Nigerian was at his comfortable best limiting the opposition through the middle. Concrete.
Faith Obilor [HJK]
Faith Obilor had an ultra solid game and was arguably the game’s best defender. Kept the opponents quiet and limiting them by making the right clearance at the right time. Intimidating.
Moses Odubajo [Sheffield Wednesday]
Thanks to the likes of the former Hull City defender, Sheffield Wednesday maintained their 100 per cent start to the season. He formed a wall in front of his ‘keeper. Daunting.
Wilfred Ndidi [Leicester City]
Always there to block any Wolves attack and while sitting in front of his defence the Super Eagles star stood out with his technical forte and was one of the hosts’ main men leaving defenders as supple as a step-ladder. Defining.
Chuks Aneke [Charlton Athletic]
Ran the midfield at the heart of his side’s performance and was always looking to set up attacks. The Arsenal product scored a brilliant goal on his debut and had several attempts leaving defenders behind as slow as molasses in winter. Superb.
David Okereke [Club Brugge]
Continually causing problems for Oostende’s defence and scored. Fatal as the fang of the most venomous snake. Compelling.
Samuel Chukwueze [Villarreal]
The skillful winger burned off Bologna, given the slightest chance, while scoring with a wonderful solo effort. His display was electrifying. Exhilarating.
Victor Osimhen [Lille]
Menaced Nantes on his Ligue 1 debut and won the points against them with a tidy brace either side of half time. His first saw him perfectly controlled a long ball to tap home he delivered the winner into the back of the net. Nuisance.
Anthony Ujah [Union Berlin]
A DFB Pokal game, a brace for the Nigerian striker, scoring his first after subtle team move before slotting the ball into the far bottom corner. His second had so much force it could have generated enough electricity for a small town. Thunderous.
Aaron Samuel [Longfa]
Hat trick hero Aaron Samuel was up for it from the first, hurting the opponent defence like the cut of a knife of frozen ice from a poisoned pool, when foiling two defenders before prodding the ball home from six yards. Never let up the pressure, scoring again and then again, under pressure himself, converted a last minute strike. Fabulous.
