Super Eagles attacker, Alex Iwobi will be hoping for his first Premier League start on Saturday when high flyers Everton welcome Brighton & Hove Albion to the Goodison Park, AOIFootball.com reports.

Similarly, the duo of Ademola Lookman and Ola Aina will be looking to erase their disappointing Carabao Cup loss on Thursday to make their Premier League debut for newly-promoted Fulham.

 

Kelechi Iheanacho: With fellow Eagle Wilfred Ndidi injured for the next 3 months, former FIFA U-17 World Cup golden boy Kelechi Iheanacho will be hoping for yet another run in as table-toppers Leicester City host West Ham United at the King Power Stadium.

 

The 23-year-old has a fantastic outing last campaign against the Hammers as he scored one and assisted another off the bench in both legs in the EPL.

 

A repeat performance will most definitely boost the confidence of the former Manchester City forward heading into the International break as he makes his long-awaited Eagles return having been out of the National Team for more than a year.

 

Odion Ighalo: The 31-year-old striker will hope to put last Thursday night’s blank outing in the Carabao Cup aside as he pushes for a first league start for Manchester United when they travel to London to face on form Tottenham Hotspur.

 

The on-loan Shanghai forward has just seen nine minutes of Premier League action this term and will most definitely hope for more action over the duo of Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood who are ahead of him in the pecking order.

 

Semi Ajayi: The Eagles defender will be targeting his first EPL win with newly-promoted West Bromich Albion when they travel to Saint Mary’s to face Southampton.

 

The 26-year-old endured a monumental breakdown last weekend as the Baggies allowed a 3-goal lead slip away in their entertaining 3-3 draw at home to Chelsea.

 

But with just two points separating both sides, Ajayi who will most definitely start for the 4th consecutive game as they aim to turnaround their fortunes against a Southampton team who have just one win from their opening 3 games.

 

Alex Iwobi: Having impressed off the bench in Thursday night in the Carabao Cup, the 24-year-old could be in line for his first Premier League clash as Everton host Brighton.

 

Head coach Carlo Ancelotti will be without midfielder Allen and could also be without Richarlison with Iwobi a possible replacement for the Brazilian should he fail to recover from the injury he suffered on Thursday.

 

The Nigerian has already showed he can deliver for the Toffees this campaign with a goal and an assist in two cup games to help them reach the quarterfinals.

 

Ola Aina and Ademola Lookman: Having both joined on loan, the duo of Ola Aina and Ademola Lookman will hope to add firepower to newly-promoted Fulham as they go in search of their first league win away at Wolverhampton.

 

Both players made their Fulham debut in the Carabao Cup tie against Brentford but will now hope for a more befitting EPL start at the Molineux.
