EPL Wrap: Moses Bench; Ladapo, Success, Solanke Not In 18; Ibe Features; Abraham CameoA round-up of Nigerian players that were in action for their respective clubs in the English Premier League on Saturday, November 25.

Nigerian players with dual nationalities that have played competitively for the senior national teams of other countries have been omitted.

Ex-Flying Eagles invitee Freddie Ladapo was not named to Crystal Palace's match day squad against Stoke City at Selhurst Park (London). He has played two games for the first-team in all competitions.

Xherdan Shaqiri gave the Potters the lead on 53 minutes, Ruben Loftus-Cheek replied three minutes later, then Mamadou Sakho scored in the second minute of injury time, allowing Palace to earn all three points.

At the Liberty Stadium, Tammy Abraham was not fit enough to start for Swansea City in their goalless draw against Jordon Ibe's Bournemouth. However, the England international came on in the 84th minute.

The Cherries number 33 Ibe started and was involved for 88 minutes and was cautioned with 15 minutes left on the clock.

Elsewhere, Tosin Kehinde and Matthew Olosunde did not make Manchester United's 18 against Brighton & Hove Albion at Old Trafford.

It finished 1-0 United courtesy of an own goal from Lewis Dunk.

As expected Isaac Success (injury) and Stefano Okaka (tactical decision) were not in Watford's traveling party to Newcastle United.

The Hornets claimed a 3-0 win courtesy of goals from Will Hughes, DeAndre Yedlin (OG) and Andre Gray.

In the late kick-off, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte did not change his mind as regards to Victor Moses, meaning the Nigeria Player of the Year starts on the bench at Anfield against Liverpool.

There is no place in the Reds squad for Chelsea old boy Dominic Solanke.
