With Shola Shoretire grabbing the headlines, as AdemetanAbayomi selects his top XI from the past weekend.

Dele Aiyenugba [Kwara United]

Another top performance from the keeper who made several sensational saves which proved crucial, including palming away Sadeeq Yusuf's strike and a wonderful full-length save to deny Fuad Ekelojuoti. Commanding.

Kenneth Omeruo [Leganes]

Hardly put a foot wrong and had a high successful passing rate making several important clearances, especially in winning his aerial battles. He was like a human version of the Bate's Motel - everything checks in but nothing checked out. Dominant.

Tosin Adarabioyo [Fulham]

A commanding show from the big man whose control of the opposition's forwards meant they displayed little danger to the Fulham defence. Prevailing.

William Troost-Ekong [Watford]

The stalwart of the backline, he never allowed the opposition any hold. Even when the Watford defence was broken occasionally, Troost-Ekong stood strong and cleared up any problems. Sturdy.

Adedeji Oshilaja [Charlton Athletic]

With his strikes and crosses causing serious problems. Always alert he scored himself. Integral.

James Igbekeme [Real Zaragoza]

An energetic performance as he attempted several assists, started off counter attacks and finally scored. Lively.

Chuks Aneke [Charlton Athletic]

A goal from the Arsenal product who was brilliant for the Addicks. Continually menacing and unplayable. Threatening.

Shola Shoretire [Manchester United]

A top performance scoring a treble and generally being a nuisance with his crosses and strikes on goals. Peerless.

Ademola Lookman [Fulham]

Caused several early problems, going close without much fortune. The winger gave West Ham much to worry with his trickery. Superb.

Olarenwaju Kayode [Sivasspor]

A great performance from the striker who showed real threat with a superb goal. Fundamental.

Peter Olayinka [Slavia Praha]

At the heart of everything that worked for Slavia Praha, he scored and was lively. Controlling.
