It’s another Sunday with no shortage of football actions across leagues in Europe and Asia, and Nigerian footballers continue to hold sway amidst the frenzy.
Headlining the Super Sunday programs in the Premier League is the heavyweight clash between Odion Ighalo’s Manchester United and Nigerian born English youngster, Bukayo Saka’s Arsenal at the Old Trafford – Manchester, England.
This campaign marks the first time since 1972/73 that Manchester United haven’t won any of their first three home league games of a season. Overall, they are on a run of five home league fixtures without victory. United’s all-time top-flight record against Arsenal is strong (W75, D45, L62 – GF 272, GA 247), with an average of 2.85 total goals per match (either way) across that entire 114-year old record.
Arsenal travel north having been ahead at HT in just one of their league assignments so far. On the road, Arsenal have lost the first half by a one-goal margin in each of their last three PL away defeats. Back in happier times for the ‘Gunners’, the year 2002 saw Arsenal clinch their second PL-era title at Old Trafford (W 1-0), but their league record at the ‘Theatre of Dreams’ since then reads: W1, D6, L11.
At the St. James’ Park, Newcastle United entertain Alexander Iwobi’s Everton, as the Magpies seek to upset the Toffees’ top of the table momentum.
Despite being second best for large swathes of their game against Wolves at Molineux last week, Newcastle claimed a share of the spoils courtesy of a clever late free-kick from Jacob Murphy.
That was the fourth top-flight fixture involving United on the spin where both teams found the net, and while the ultra-defensive Magpies remain far from prolific scorers, Steve Bruce’s cautious charges managed to make an impact on the scoresheet in eight of their nine competitive matches overall this term.
Everton hit their first major bump in the road this season, in a 2-0 reverse at Southampton last week, where the Toffees’ misery was compounded by the sending-off of key defender Lucas Digne.
Everton have, however, won five of their previous seven PL visits to Newcastle (L2), and they’re chasing a ninth win overall in the competition (PL era) – only winning more times away vs West Ham (11). The ‘Toffees’ have also scored here in nine consecutive PL visits.
Elsewhere in the Spanish La Liga, Granada, still without the injured Ramon Azeez (thigh injury) play host to the struggling Levante at Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes – Granada, Spain.
However, notwithstanding seeing a late red card in the UEFA Europa League, Super Eagles forward Victor Osimhen is expected to lead the attack for Napoli in their Italian Serie A home encounter with Sassuolo at Stadio San Paolo – Naples, Italy.
