  • It was such a coincidence that the two top defensive midfielders of the Super Eagles lost this weekend’s round of matches with Agu rating higher than Ndidi for their respective clubs.

    Ndidi rated 6.82 in the weekend’s match whereas Agu, who scored a fabulous header which wasn’t enough to save his team, rated an impressive 7.78.

    Both players played 90 minutes and both players improved on previous ratings as Ndidi last rated 6.4 while Agu had rated 6.84.

    As it stands the quality of the English Premier league
    arguably superscedes that of the Portuguese league.

    From the highlights I saw yesterday, Iheanacho was impressive for the time he was on the pitch. His trademark one-time pass to Vardy almost led to a goal whilst another passing routing he was involved with also caused problems to the opposition.

    Isaac Success, who lost his starting position, really needs to work on his composure and passing skills in my view.

    Iheanacho was 6.21 for 17 minutes of football while Success rated 5.86 from 13 minutes.

    While Kelechi stayed stagnant from last weekend’s 6.2 ratings, Isaac regressed from his prior rating of 6.86
