Musa continues to struggle with Leicester City even as Iheanacho finds Aguero’s
shoes too big to fill, not forgetting table toppers Chelsea with our own Victor
Moses running the show.
It’s
the Super Eagles Watch time to tell you how our beloved Eagles featured across
Europe…….
England
Odion Ighalo was stuck on
the bench as Watford came from a goal down to defeat Everton three goals to two
in front of their home fans.
Ighalo
is enduring a terrible spell which had led to his losing his place in the
starting line-up scoring just ones this season.
Super
Eagles player Alex Iwobi scored his
first goal of the season as he came off the bench to score Arsenal’s third goal
in their 3-1 win over Stoke City.

minutes before he was replaced by Yaya Toure. It was Iheanacho’s 10th
appearance this term with three goals.
His
compatriot Ahmed Musa was benched
for the whole match at the King Power Stadium. Musa has scored two league goals
but has fired blanks in his last four games.
Victor Anichebe played all 90
minutes but  failed to add to his three
goal tally as Sunderland lost 3-0 to Swansea.

Granada in their away game against Malaga.
The
game ended one goal apiece, leaving Granada wallowing in the relegation zone.

instrumental in Lille recording a 2-1 home win over Montpellier who defeated
Paris Saint-Germain 3-0 on Saturday at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy in the Ligue 1.

feature in FSV Mainz 1-0 away loss to Borussia Monchengladbach. Balogun was an
