 EPL Wrap: Iheanacho Hits Double Digits; Ighalo Close To Scoring; Idah Denied By The Post
Allnigeriasoccer.com's round-up of Nigeria-eligible players who were in action for the respective clubs in the English Premier League on Saturday, July 4.

In the early kickoff at Carrow Road, Norwich find themselves in deep relegation trouble following their 1-0 defeat suffered at the hands of Brighton & Hove.

Republic of Ireland U21 international Adam Idah, on as a substitute in the 67th minute, came close to bagging his first goal in the English top-flight when his header hit the post in the fourth minute of stoppage time.

Let's go to the King Power Stadium. Super Eagles striker Kelechi Iheanacho has reached double figures for goals for the first time since his breakout season in England after opening the scoring for Leicester City in a 3-0 rout of Crystal Palace.

At minute 49, the former Manchester City starlet tapped in to put the Foxes on their way, before Jamie Vardy netted his 100th and 101st Premier League goals to secure a comfortable win for Brendan Rodgers' side.

Iheanacho was on the pitch for 64 minutes while Wilfred Ndidi logged the full shift in midfield.

Finally, a rampant Manchester United team beat Bournemouth 5-2 at Old Trafford, with Mason Greenwood scoring two, Marcus Rashford was on target, Anthony Martial too and Bruno Fernandes with a free-kick wrapped up the scoring.

Odion Ighalo, who came off the bench in the 80th minute, came close to scoring but saw his effort go narrowly wide.

Bournemouth's former Denmark U21 international Philip Billing replaced Dominic Solanke in the 66th minute.

In the evening kickoff, Bukayo Saka, fresh from signing a new deal, starts for Arsenal against Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux Stadium.
