Nigeria forward, Kelechi Iheanacho will be hoping to score his first Premier League goal of the season tonight when he travels to Elland Road for the first time since he started playing in England.

The former Golden Eaglets star who will be hoping to get his second start in the competition this term when Leicester City play against Leeds United will also be seeking his first Premier League goal against the newcomers to the top flight in England.

Currently Nigeria’s eighth most lethal striker in the Premier League,a goal for Iheanacho tonight will be his 22nd,four short of the 26 scored by Victor Anichebe who sits as the seventh top scoring player in the competition.

While Iheanacho will be busy chasing his 22nd goal in the competition,Ola Aina and Semi Ajayi will be seeking for their first win when Fulham and West Brom confront each other tonight at the Craven Cottage.

Aina has started the Cottagers’ last three games and looks a sure bet to start tonight in London where he will be hoping for his first Premier League win of the season.

Ajayi on his part has started five of The Baggies’ six games and will be looking forward to not only making his sixth start in the competition,but also secure his first maximum points.
