With Josh Maja and Terim Moffi painting Europe with goals, AdemetanAbayomi selects his Nigerian XI from the past weekend.

Adeleye Adebayo [Hapoel Jerusalem]

A top performance from the keeper and the reason why Hapoel Jerusalem won the points. Saved at least three goal-bound efforts while blocking several strong shots and commanded his area giving sustenance and substance to his whole defence in the win over Hapoel Ra'anana. Impervious.

Tosin Adarabioyo [Fulham]

In the win at Everton, Tosin Adarabioyo didn't overlook his defensive duties and kept a tight ship throughout. Assiduous.

Semi Ajayi [West Brom]

Another faultless display and the reference point for the West Brom defence and midfield. Always alert to any danger and left Manchester United forwards floundering around like fish out of water. Luminous.

William Troost-Ekong [Watford]

William Troost-Ekong was an absolute rock at the back. Totally in control, dominant in the tackle. Rapacious.

Ola Aina [Fulham] 

Won every aerial encounter, made several crucial tackles and smothered his opposite number. Tenacious.

Tyrone Ebuehi [Twente]

Ebuehi was unstoppable. And although the hosts had the majority of possession, when he had the ball he made it count. Marvellous.

Wilfred Ndidi [Leicester City]

The ex-Genk midfielder strode through the game with ease and worked equally as hard in defence as he did attack as Leicester City beat Liverpool 3-1. Dangerous.

Kelechi Nwakali [Alcorcon]

The Architect controlled the game with metronomic precision as Alcorcon won against UD Logroñés. Meticulous.

Ademola Lookman [Fulham]

Lookman was a dynamo down the left flank, inspiring and finishing attacks from that side. Set up several chances with his superb crossing. Adventurous.

Terim Moffi [Lorient]

Man of the Match? The Nigerian is the man for all seasons. He was everywhere, threatening straight through the centre and scored two goals against Monaco. Illustrious.

Josh Maja [Fulham]

A standout performance from the striker who also scored a brace. Like a hawk after its prey, he slalomed like Maradona past Everton defenders and was brilliant. Glorious.

Have your say about the team.
