EPL Nigerian Players Wrap: Moses Scores, Ighalo Booked, Success Debuts, Musa Gets Half An Hour


Saturday games in the English Premier League (EPL) saw four Nigeria internationals in actions, with contrasting fortunes for the quartet in different games.


Victor Moses leads the way with Chelsea’s third goal in their 3-0 win over Burnley. His first goal for Chelsea in the league since the 3rd of November 2012, when he scored against Swansea City.

Ahmed Musa was once again introduced as a substitute by manager Claudio Ranieri for the last 15 minutes of their clash against Swansea City which they won 2-1.

Odion Ighalo is still searching for his first league goal of the season, clearly failing to build on his goal against Gillingham in the 1-2 League Cup defeat, with a booking for dissent on his way to the dressing room summing up his frustrations.

Isacc Success made his debut, coming on as a 77th minute substitute for Nordin Amrabat, and the club record signing came close to reducing the deficit for Watford with a header and twice helping out in defence as Watford fell 1-3 to Arsenal.
