EPL: Anichebe nets brace for Sunderland, Ahmed Musa loses with Leicester

Nigerian striker, Victor Anichebe, was the hero yet again for Sunderland as he netted two goals in the 3-0 win recorded over Hull City in Saturday’s Premier League clash at the Stadium of Light.

Anichebe who played a pivotal role in Sunderland’s first win of the season just before the International Break was again at his best on Saturday; hitting a brace in the 3-0 win over the Tigers.

Anichebe’s double after Jermaine Defoe had racked up his 150th Premier League goal sealed a priceless win for the Black Cats who have now moved away from bottom spot for the first time this season.

In some of the other games also played on Saturday, Watford without any input from the Nigerian duo of Odion Ighalo and Isaac Success beat defending champions Leicester City 2-1 at the Vicarage Road.

While Ighalo was rooted on the bench for 90 minutes, Success is still out with injury, he was thus not included in the match day squad.

For Leicester, they introduced Ahmed Musa into the game in the 80th minute but the fleet-footed Nigerian forward could not salvage the day.

At Selhurst Park, Kelechi Iheanacho’s wish to score against Crystal Palace again was given no life as the young Nigerian was left on the bench for the entire duration.

It was Yaya Toure who stole the headlines in that game as he scored twice, helping Manchester City to a 2-1 win away to Palace.
