Everton loanee Henry Onyekuru has been rated as one of the best players on display by authoritative French football news outlet France Football despite Anderlecht suffering a 0-4 drubbing at the hands of PSG.
Onyekuru was on for the entire duration of the game, and although he twice failed to score when he had the chance to do so, he was very lively for the Belgium champions with PSG full back Dani Alves admitting he had a torrid time keeping the Nigerian quiet.
His display earned him a 6 out of 10 rating, a score higher than that of the world most expensive player Neymar who scored one of the goals for PSG, but was rated 5 out of 10.
French forward Kylian Mbappe got the highest rating with a score of 7/10, a figure only better than that of Onyekuru and his teammate Adrien Trebel who were a point short.
“The young Nigerian still has a lot to learn but Henry Onyekuru was daring, dribbling at ease for his team. He could have scored in the 12th minute but for a save by Areola after he left Dani Alves rooted to the spot.
“He could also have reduced the deficit late on in the game but was denied by the crossbar.At only 20, this Everton loanee has a bright future ahead of him, a piece on his 6/10 rating reads.
