EPL wrap: Tosin first goal in over a year; Iwobi assists; Adebayo scores again; Ugochukwu, Madueke still absent

Allnigeriasoccer.com's round-up of Nigeria-eligible players that were in action for their respective clubs in the English Premier League on Sunday, December 10.


At Craven Cottage, it was another five star day for Fulham as they thrashed West Ham United 5-0, four days after scoring five without reply against Nottingham Forest. 


Fulham boss Marco Silva handed starts to Tosin Adarabioyo and Calvin Bassey in the center of defence while Alex Iwobi started on the right wing.


Fulham found themselves 3-0 up at the interval courtesy of goals from Raul Jimenez, Willian and Adarabioyo.


Willian finished from about eight yards into the bottom corner after Andreas Pereira's shot took a nick off Iwobi before finding the Brazilian at the back post in the 31st minute. 


Five minutes before halftime, Tosin scored his first Premier League goal since September 2022 as he powered a header past the West Ham United goalkeeper. 


Harry Wilson increased the lead in the 60th minute with the pick of the goals before Vinicius wrapped up the scoring in the 88th minute. 


At Kenilworth Road, 2015 Golden Eaglets invitee Gabriel Osho was not included in Luton Town's matchday squad in a 2-1 loss to reigning champions Manchester City.


Elijah Adebayo, who went the distance, broke the deadlock in the second minute of first half stoppage time when he rose above Ruben Dias to power in a header. 


The Fulham academy product also scored with a header as the Hatters were beaten 4-3 by Arsenal in the penultimate round of matches. 


Manchester City responded in the second half, scoring through Bernardo Silva and Jack Grealish to return to winning ways.


Elsewhere, Lesley Ugochukwu, Carney Chukwuemeka and Noni Madueke were not involved as Chelsea suffered a 2-0 loss to Everton at Goodison Park. 


The three players are undergoing their rehabilitation programme and were not named in the traveling squad to Liverpool.


Abdoulaye Doucoure set the Toffees on their way in the 54th minute and  Lewis Dobbin sealed the win in stoppage time.
