The Watkins show

In what was a proper goal rush in the Premier League, he produced an outstanding display after he scored one and assisted two goals for Unai Emery’s rampant Villians.

Watkins’ heroics helped Villa cement their place in the top four on a day that witnessed other high-scoring matches. 

Adebayo scores in 8-goal thriller

While Watkins stole the show at the Lane, Super Eagles-eligible forward Elijah Adebayo and his newly promoted Luton Town are proving a hard nut to crack.

Adebayo and his group of Hatters won’t stop scoring after a remarkable eight-goal thriller against Newcastle United at St. James’ Park.

A blistering start to the encounter saw both teams locked at 2-2 after the first half, with another Nigerian. Gabriel Osho on target.

After the break, Carlton Morris and Adebayo fired a quick double to give Luton a 4-2 lead but they could not hold on as Kieran Trippier and Harvey Barnes netted late to force a share of the spoils.

Adebayo’s goal was his fourth in the last two matches after the hat-trick against Brighton the last time, taking his tally to nine goals this season in the PL.

Eagles smashed by Seagulls

Talking about Brighton, the Seagulls used Crystal Palace to banish the ghosts of that stunning capitulation against Adebayo-led Hatters. 

Brighton thrashed Eberechi Eze, Michael Olise and their fellow Eagles 4-1 to bounce back in style.
