Troost-Ekong, Onyeka Suffer Defeats With Watford, Brentford; Olise Bags Assist In Palace’s Win At City

William Troost-Ekong was in action for Watford but could not prevent them from losing 1-0 at home to Southampton, in Saturday’s Premier League tie.

Troost-Ekong played for 90 minutes while his Nigerian teammate Emmanuel Dennis did not feature due to suspension.

Che Adams was the hero for the Saints as his 20th minute strike proved to be the winner.

At Turf Moor, Frank Onyeka played for 58 minutes as Brentford lost 3-1 to Burnley.

Brentford have now lost their last three Premier League games.

At the Etihad, Manchester City suffered a 2-0 defeat to Crystal Palace.

It is now back-back defeats for City, who were eliminated in the Carabao Cup in midweek.

Michael Olise, who came in the 85th minute, set up Conor Gallagher for Palace’s second goal on 88 minutes.

Wilfred Zaha has given Patrick Vieira’s side the lead just six minutes into the game.

City were reduced to 10 men in first half added time after Aymeric Laporte was shown a red card for a foul on Zaha.

And in other results, Liverpool threw away a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 with Brighton while Chelsea hammered Newcastle United 3-0 away.

Chelsea are now on 25 points and are three points ahead of Liverpool in the league table.

  • See football wonder! This is a palace team that have been either beaten or drawing with lesser team but they got their second win of the season against almighty Man city. Another football wonder was Liverpool surrendering a 2 goals lead to Brighton. Lesson to learnt by my Nigerians fan who always goes besserk whenever their SE drew or lost a match. Can we say Pep Guardiola is not a good coach for loosing to palace team who have been drawing or loosing to lesser teams or Klopp is a tactical less coach for drawing a match from a winning position against an infancy team? Rohr critics over to you

    Nff should not relent in scouting micheal olise. I think he is creative and we need players like that in the Super Eagles. The young man is getting negative vibes from his agent and there should be a counter active force to neutralize this. His father can be the key.

    • @ Victor nooooo…..why disturb Olise?…..we need Mikel obi to return from retirement and bring his experience along with him…… leave Olise alone let us concentrate on bringing back all our retired players……That is what is reigning now o……LMAO
