 EPL Wrap : Billing Shines Vs Man Utd; Watford's Success In 18; Arsenal's Saka Subbed In; Brighton's Balogun Missing A round-up of Nigerian players that were in action for their respective clubs in the English Premier League on Saturday, November 2.

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

In the early kickoff , Philip Billing helped Bournemouth record a 1-0 win against Manchester United, playing the full game at the Vitality Stadium while teammate Dominic Solanke watched proceedings from the bench.

Just before half-time, Joshua King flicked the ball over Wan-Bissaka and then smashed it past De Gea to secure three points for the Cherries.

At The American Express Community Stadium, Nigeria international Leon Balogun was not in the Brighton & Hove squad against Norwich City.  Republic of Ireland youth-teamer Adam Idah was not in the Canaries 18.

On 68 minutes, Leandro Trossard opened the scoring when he poked home Montoya's cross from the right at the near post before Shane Duffy made it 2-0 six minutes from time.

At the Emirates Stadium in London, Arsenal and Wolverhampton Wanderers shared the spoils with a 1-1 draw.

England U19 international Bukayo Saka, who was left out of the starting line-up vs Crystal Palace but started the previous four Premier League games, came off the bench for the second successive game in the 73rd minute.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang hit a first-time shot past Patricio after being found by Lacazette inside the box to give the Gunners the lead in the 21st minute but the visitors got a point from the game thanks to Raul Jimenez's 76th minute equaliser.

In the late kickoff, Isaac Success has returned to Watford's matchday 18 for the first time since August 31 but starts on the bench against Chelsea at Vicarage Road. Fikayo Tomori starts for the Blues as expected.
