ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE

Daniel Amartey

He was at the heart of the midfield for Leicester City as they thrashed former Champions Manchester City 5-2 in their own backyard at Etihad in a truly dominant performance by Leicester City on Sunday evening.

Amartey played the entire 90 minutes getting a yellow card in a very clinical performance. Algerian captain Riyaad Mahrez lasted the entire 90 minutes for Man City scoring their first goal, but it wasn’t enough for the citizens to avoid defeat.

Kouyate, Ayew and Zaha

SPANISH LA LIGA

The Nigerian international started against Barcelona, but could not help Villareal avoid a 4-0 thumping at the hands of the Catalonian giants with their best stars such as Lionel Messi on song on the day. Chukwueze was substituted in the second half of the game.

Thomas Partey

The Ghanaian international came on in the second half of the game as Atletico Madrid ran riot against Granada defeating them 6-1 in the Spanish La Liga. Madrid debutant Luiz Suarez came on in the second half of the game to score two goals for Atletico Madrid who sent a message to all their rivals in the league.

Allan Nyom and Djene

Getafe duo started ad lasted 90 minutes for the La Liga side as they drew 0-0 against Alaves in the top flight. With Alaves putting on so much pressure Djene found himself in the referee’s book after fouling the opposition striker Joselu.

Osimhen assisted the second goal scored by Piotr Zielinski after 46 minutes of the game before being yellow carded later in the game. Osimhen is a focal point of coach Gattuso’s plans as all the attacking players use his speed and power to get into opposition halves.

Frank Kessie

Ismael Traore and Steve Mounie

Ivorian midfielder Traore and Beninese striker Steve Mounie both scored for either side as Angers got a hard fought 3-2 victory over Stade Brest in Ligue 1. Mounie opened the scoring just three minutes into the first half to give Brest the lead, but the side would later squander the lead with Traore scoring in the 77th minute for Angers who stole the three points in the last 10 minutes of the game with an Angelo Fulgini winner.

Tino Kadewere and Maxwell Cornet

The Zimbabwean striker came on in the second half to replace Cherki for Lyon who drew 1-1 away at FC Lorient in the league. Ivorian winger Cornet was also in action for Lyon who substituted him in the second of the game.
