Alex Iwobi and his Arsenal teammates are through to the quarter final of the English Football League Cup following their 2-0 win over Reading FC on Tuesday night.
Iwobi was in action from start to finish at the Emirates Stadium as the Gunners returned to winning ways after the disappointing barren draw recorded over the weekend against Middlesbrough.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scored the two goals that saw Arsenal progress.
Meanwhile, at Anfield, another Nigerian youngster, Ovie Ejaria, had a memorable night as he recorded a winning full debut with Liverpool.
The Reds beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 to join the likes of Arsenal and Newcastle United in the quarter finals.
Attention will shift to Old Trafford on Wednesday as Kelechi Iheanacho and his Manchester City teammates will battle city rivals Manchester united for a quarter final berth.
Both teams are witnessing a bad patch at the moment. While City are without a win in five games, United were humiliated 4-0 by Chelsea in their last outing.
The West Ham vs. Chelsea game also has some Nigerian interest as the duo of Victor Moses and Mikel Obi are likely candidates for action at the Olympic Stadium.
