Allnigeriasoccer.com's round-up of Nigeria-eligible players that were in action for their respective clubs in the English Premier League on Saturday, November 20, 2021.
In the early kickoff, table-toppers Chelsea picked up another three points and clean sheet after thrashing Leicester City 3-0 at the King Power Stadium thanks to goals from Antonio Rudiger, N'Golo Kante and Christian Pulisic.

Wilfred Ndidi put in a full ninety-minute shift for the Foxes while Kelechi Iheanacho came on at half-time to replace Super Eagles hopeful Ademola Lookman, who had a goal ruled out for offside in the first half.

At Vicarage Road, Emmanuel Dennis helped Watford to a shock 4-1 win against Manchester United.

Joshua King got them on their way in the 28th minute when he tapped in after Dennis had pulled the ball back and Ismaila Sarr put his penalty disappointment behind him when he lashed home for 2-0 just before the end of the half.

Donny van de Beek halved the deficit with a header in the 50th minute, 14 minutes before William Troost-Ekong entered the fray.

After assisting Joao Pedro score Watford's third goal,  Dennis made it 4-1 with a brilliant accurate strike into the bottom corner in stoppage time.

In a thriller at St. James' Park, the spoils were shared between Newcastle United and Brentford.

The two teams were level at the break as Lascelles and Joelinton cancelled out goals from Ivan Toney and Rico Henry.

Frank Onyeka hopped off the bench in the 59th minute and thought he had scored his first Premier League goal two minutes later when his strike took a huge deflection off Lascelles and flew into the net. The goal went down as an own goal.

Allan Saint-Maximin brought the game back to parity with fifteen minutes to go.

At Turf Moor, Super Eagles target Eberechi Eze watched proceedings from the bench as Crystal Palace and Burnley shared the spoils with a 3-3 draw.

The Eagles scorers were Christian Benteke (2) and Marc Guehi, while Ben Mee, Chris Wood and Maxwel Cornet replied for the Clarets.

2021 Super Eagles invitee Michael Olise entered the game as a substitute in the 58th minute, replacing Jordan Ayew.

At Carrow Road, Norwich City came from behind to beat Southampton 2-1.

Che Adam's fourth minute opener was cancelled out by Teemu Pukki three minutes later and the Canaries edged in front through Grant Hanley with eleven minutes to go.

Former Arsenal schoolboy Nathan Tella was one of the six Southampton substitutes not utilized by manager Ralph Hasenhüttl.

In manager Steven Gerrard's first game in charge of Aston Villa, Carney Chukwuemeka was a non-playing substitute in a 2-0 win versus Brighton & Hove.

Two late goals from Ollie Watkins and Tyrone Mings gave the Lions their first win in six.

In the late kickoff, both Folarin Balogun and goalkeeper Arthur Okonkwo have not been named in Arsenal's matchday 20 against Liverpool at Anfield.
