Allnigeriasoccer.com's round-up of Nigeria-eligible players in action for their respective clubs in the third round of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday, September 22.

At Rodney Parade, exciting winger Joseph Hungbo, who was a big hit for Watford U23s last season, played the entirety of the second half in his side's 3-1 loss to Newport County.

The Hornets were two goals down at the break; Tristan Abrahams and Joss Labadie getting on the scoresheet for the home team, PeĊ„aranda pulled one back from the spot nine minutes into the second half, but Amond restores the Welsh side's two-goal lead at minute 65.

Super Eagles striker Isaac Success and central midfielder Tom Dele-Bashiru were not included in Watford's matchday squad.

Let's go to the Hawthorns, Semi Ajayi was not in the West Brom side beaten on penalties by Brentford.

West Brom's Hal Robson-Kanu's brace was cancelled out by Emiliano Marcondes and Marcus Forss, sending the game to penalties.

Ajibola Alese impressed on his full debut, helping West Ham register a comprehensive 5-1 win against Hull City at the London Stadium.

Sebastien Haller and Andriy Yarmolenko netted a brace each and Robert Snodgrass got the other goal for the Hammers, while Wilks' 70th minute goal for the Tigers was only a consolation.

Manchester United returned to winning ways, thrashing Championship high-flyers Luton Town 3-0 thanks to a Juan Mata penalty in the 44th minute and second half goals from substitutes Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood.

Former Nigeria international Odion Ighalo was handed his first start of the season and was in action for 79 minutes.
