  • Chukwueze’s introduction completely changed the game in favour of Villarreal. From 1-1 before his introduction to 5-1 after his introduction. The coach needs to know when to use him either as a starter or impact player. The guy is still learning. But with him playing regularly he will definitely grow into a great player for club and country.
    P.s
    Oshimeh and kalu also scored this week. Our Trifecta are coming together nicely. Just hope that aribo’s head injury isnt serious.
