Super Eagles newbie Ola Aina, is set to start for the newly crowned Premier League champions on Monday night against fellow Londoners, Watford, as they wrap up a very successful and productive season for the Antonio Conte-led side, AOIFootball.com reports.

Chelsea claimed the English Premier League title on Friday after Mitchy Bashuayi’s 88th minute strike against West Bromwich Albion ensured all three points and saw the team amass unreachable 87 points, 10 points ahead of their closest rivals Tottenham Hotspurs.

Aina, who recently committed his future to Nigeria, is one of the players Eagles’ Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr has extended an invitation to for the camping in France ahead of their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against South Africa.

This comes as a morale booster for the Nigerian camp and Aina too, as he has been an understudy of fellow compatriot Victor Moses in the right-back position for the champions all season, featuring only in three games, two in the FA Cup and a 9- minute appearance in the EPL.
