    Well done Simon, who is back to his form and still among our performing wingers.

    Let’s look at all our wingers in Europe and see their stats and those who have performed best this season especially with regards end product or goal contribution. Also bearing in mind orders factor like quality of league could also contribute.

    I have also calculated their goal contribution ratio or percentage.

    1. H. Onyekwe 5g 3A in 17game 47%
    2. P. Olayinka 11g 5A in 35game 46%
    3. S. Chukweze 5g 8A in 39game 33%
    4. M. Simon 6g 3A in 31games 29%
    5. A. Lookman. 4g 4A in 31g 26%
    6. S. Kalu 4g 1A in 20games 25%
    7. C. Ejuke. 3g 2A in 31games 16%
    8. A. Iwobi. 2g 3A in 34games 15%

    Then if we narrow it down to the Top 5 league in the world.
    1. S. Chukwueze
    2. M. Simon
    3. A. Lookman
    4. S. Kalu
    5. A. Iwobi

    Note this analysis is purely the goal contribution of our wingers in Europe this current season.
    What do you think?

    • Well done. Nicely put together

    • Steve Mandanda 3 years ago

      How come Iwobi came last on both of your lists? Is he that bad?

      • Ikeben 3 years ago

        @Steve, is not my personal rating. It is simply the ratio of his goal contribution in his club to the his no. of Appearances. It is not my numbers but facts comparing him with other wingers.

        But that does not mean he is a bad player, because he gives more than just goal scoring and for Nigeria he is deployed more as an AM, where he usually excels.
