Manchester City shot to the top spot on the EPL table after demolishing Southampton
hree Super Eagles players Joe Aribo, Frank Onyeka, and Kelechi Iheanacho, were in action in the Premier League on Saturday, but unfortunately, the Nigerian trio all ended on the losing side.
For Aribo and Onyeka, it was even worse, with Manchester City beating Southampton 4-0 and Brentford losing 5-1 to Newcastle United, respectively.
Unlike his other two compatriots, who came on as substitutes, Aribo was in action from the blast of the whistle at the Etihad Stadium.
However, unlike he did last weekend when he scored against Everton, Aribo huffed and puffed against City before making way for Juan Larios Lopez in the 79th minute.
The latest defeat for the Saints, the fourth in quick succession, has seen Aribo and his teammates hover around the relegation zone.
With seven points from nine games, Southampton presently occupy the 16th position on the Premier League table, though they are just one point above those in the relegation zone.
