Futbalgalore.com brings you an update on how Nigerian players performed in the English Premier League on Saturday.
Aston Villa 1-2 Bournemouth
The future of Jordon Ibe continued to be a subject as the winger was benched for the entirety of Bournemouth’s 2-1 win against Aston Villa.
Brighton & Hove Albion 1-1 West Ham United
Super Eagles ‘Oyinbo Warrior’ Leon Balogun failed to make the cut for Brighton & Hove Albion who drew 1-1 at home to West Ham United.
Everton 1-0 Watford
Bernard’s early goal handed Everton a first Premier League victory of the season as Watford’s miserable run at Goodison Park was extended following a 1-0 defeat.
The Brazilian’s 10th-minute strike helped Everton capitalise on a lively start while the Toffees mixed resolute defence with moments of fortune thereafter to keep a sixth successive top-flight clean sheet at home.
New signing Alex Iwobi was benched in the game. Watford duo Tom Dele Bashiru and Isaac Success weren’t listed for the cracker.
