Premier League Wrap : Iheanacho Replaces Aguero; Anichebe Scores On Full Debut; Ibe Subbed Out; Mikel Missing Again; Moses Starts, Aina On The BenchRundown of how players of Nigerian descent fared in the Premier League on Saturday.

At the Etihad Stadium, Manchester City were punished for failing to build on their first half performance after they were held to a 1-1 draw by a disciplined Middlesbrough side.

Super Eagles striker Kelechi Iheanacho had only four minutes of action after he entered into the fray in the 90th minute while England youth international of Nigerian descent Tosin Adarabioyo was not involved for the Citizens.

It took a moment of brilliance from De Bruyne to find Aguero , who finished from close range in the 43rd minute, but the visitors gave themselves a fighting chance when they did not concede again and were rewarded in the first minute of stoppage time when de Roon headed the ball past Bravo.

Over to the Vitality Stadium, Sunderland have something to build on heading into the international break after registering their first win of the season versus Bournemouth.

On his first start in the Premier League since February, Victor Anichebe fired home from close range in the 33rd minute to restore parity for the Black Cats, before Defoe’s game-winner in the 74th minute.

The Nigerian logged 90 minutes and was cautioned in the 70th minute. Bournemouth’s Jordon Ibe was replaced before the start of the second half, while Josh Maja and Joel Asoro were not involved for Sunderland. 2-1 it finished.

Italy international Angelo Ogbonna put in a full shift in West Ham’s 1-1 draw with Stoke City. Bojan leveled matters for the Potters with 15 minutes left after an own goal by Whelan gave the Hammers the lead at the London Stadium.

In the late kickoff, there is no John Obi Mikel in Chelsea 18-man squad as they welcome Ross Barkley’s Everton to Stamford Bridge.

Victor Moses starts again for the Blues at right wing-back while teammate Ola Aina is on the bench.
