The English Premier League
is the most-watched football league across the world and in Nigeria itself. Fans follow and bet on their teams with a fevered passion, whether it be Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea or others. Despite the fact that few of the above big teams are sporting Nigerian talent on their bench, there are definitely a few classy Nigerian players making waves across the table in the Premier League.
Frank Onyeka made a name for himself when he came on in the final 10 minutes to score the final goal in Brentford’s 4-0 thrashing of Manchester United in August of 2022. This was his first appearance for the Bees and we’re excited to see where his Premier League career goes to from here.
Another player to look out for is the Crystal Palace midfielder, Michael Olise. Defined as a bit of a playmaker, we’re anticipating him to have a greater impact in the latter half of the 22/23 season, adding to his goal and assist tally.
Hull City stated how delighted they were to have secured Malcolm Ebiowei on loan from Crystal Palace. The winger has proven himself as an outstanding one-on-one player, being both quick and creative, despite suffering a minor injury this season.
Some might call Awoniyi’s match-winning strike in Nottingham Forest’s 1-0 win over West Ham United a bit lucky, but anyone who wins the game on his side’s first home appearance in the top-flight in over two decades deserves commendation.
In addition to the above pros, there are so many other talented Nigerians to keep an eye on, including Kelechi Iheanacho, Eberechi Eze, Wilfred Ndidi and more. Make sure to bet on all of your favourite Nigerian players and their teams with Betway and back all of these rising stars.
