The English Premier League is arguably the most watched league on the planet and is coming back to our screens in August, mehn we really can’t wait!!!!!!
For Nigerians, it is another season of supporting your beloved teams in a quest for glory.
Naijaloaded Sport Lists The 5 Nigerian Stars We Expect To Glow In The Premier League This Season:
Victor Moses [Chelsea]
After a above average performance for Super Eagles at the World Cup, Moses will be looking to up the ante when club football resumes.
With Chelsea new manager Sarri expressing serious interest in the speedy winger, Moses will be an integral part of an attacking minded Blues side this coming season.
SHINE RATING: 7/10
Alex Iwobi [Arsenal]
“I have information he is near to a new contract”- Arsenal new boss Unai Emery said recently of Iwobi.
With 98 appearances for the gunners across all competitions, scoring nine goals and recording 18 assists, also winning the FA Cup once and two Community Shield winners medals, Iwobi is highly influential for the north London club.
We expect the midfielder to be on fire again as the gunners push for a title assault under a new manager.
SHINE RATING: 8/10
Ahmed Musa [Leicester City]
Wow!! He was really terrific for Super Eagles at the World Cup, scoring 2 incredible goals in the process that we all celebrated.
So its no surprise Leicester City are refusing to let the striker out of their sight.
Musa will be hoping to reproduce his World Cup exploits when the league resumes in August. He is certainly one to watch out for.
SHINE RATING: 9/10
Kelechi Ihenacho [Leicester City]
A goal poacher who needs more playing time to rediscover his hidden talent.
On his day, Iheanacho is a tough striker for defenders to play against.
Hopefully he gets enough game time with the Foxes in the coming season as he really needs them.
SHINE RATING: 5/10
Wilfred Ndidi [Leicester City]
Yet another Leicester City player, Wilfred Ndidi is a creative gem in the midfield who is undoubtedly an aggressive tackler of the ball, similar to the great Gennaro Gattuso.
In fact, in the first month of 2018, a reliable stats gathering website Squawka revealed that Ndidi made 91 successful tackles, more than any other player from the Premier League, Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1 and La Liga. Outstanding!
Ndidi is arguably one of the best midfielders in the Premier League.
SHINE RATING: 8/10
Thank you for all reading.
Which Of These Super Eagles Players Do You Think Will Have The Best Season?
MINE: I would have said Moses but Ahmed Musa at Leicester City will have the best season. If Leicester City manage to keep him, expect 15+ goals from him.
