Our Team of the Week will see a 4-3-3 formation deployed. Let us know your thoughts!
Matthew Yakubu [Sered]
The new Super Eagles invitee was utstanding with several blinding saves against Zemplin Michalovce. Sensational.
Musa Mohammed [Gorica]
A vigilant performance down his flank and pretty much annulled any danger coming from the Hajduk Split attack. Kept his discipline and never allowed himself to be pulled out of position and a thoroughly neat display. Subtle.
Leon Balogun [Rangers]
Like flying to the moon in a Fiat 500 it was impossible for Ross Stewart or Harry Paton to put down any real traction against the Rangers star. His determination and ferocity was best highlighted in the game. Commanding.
Kenneth Omeruo [Leganes]
Made a handful of clearances and interceptions. Also launched a couple of menacing crosses during the match. Intimidating.
Godfrey Stephen [Isloch]
The left back was consistently upsetting the narrative throughout and succeeded in scoring a goal in the massacre of Krumkachy. Assertive.
John Obi Mikel [Stoke City]
Controlled the midfield with his dynamic passes into danger areas and displayed all his power and pace before delivering a handful of dangerous balls that left defenders as perky as rat droppings. Menacing.
Sone Aluko [Reading]
The ex Super Eagles star was consistently menacing in the win over Watford. Complete.
Alex Iwobi [Everton]
Integral to the win with a massive assist in one of the Everton goals. Absolute.
Chuba Akpom [Middlesbrough]
A wonderful performance, creating space and plotting moves for his teammates to exploit. The Arsenal product was always looking for the killer ball, he produced the second goal for the hosts who edged Barnsley 2-1. Supreme.
Samuel Kalu [Bordeaux]
A commanding game and encapsulated his best performances when scoring with all his pure, irresistible energy. Tigerish.
Ebere Paul Onuachu [Genk]
Always looking to cause problems with and without the ball. Later after his continuous pushing he scored his seventh goal of the season. Comprehensive.
