Formation: (3-4-3)

Sebastian Osigwe makes his third consecutive appearance in our Team of the Week.

21-year old Tosin Kehinde gets into our squad for the first time and partners wilfred Ndidi.

Haruna Garba, Kelechi Iheanacho and Leke James lead the line.

Kelechi Iheanacho is our Star Player of the week.

Sebastian Osigwe: The shot stopper keeps his place in the squad, although falling to a defeat with SC Kriens. He beats Ejide who suffered a 3-0 defeat. Akpeyi did not feature.

Raphael Chukwu: The left-back scored a beautiful goal for Torpedo Kutaisi in their 2-1 Georgia Umaglesi Liga defeat.

Chidozie Awaziem: The Centre-back had a good game with 9 clearances, 2 interceptions and 1 block in Leganes’ narrow 1-0 loss vs Sevilla.

Semi Ajayi: Another solid game at the heart of West Brom’s defence, as they continued their promotion charge with a 1-0 win.

Samuel Kalu: Consecutive TOTW appearances for the 27-year old. He was one of the best players for Bordeaux in their 1-1 Ligue 1 draw vs Reims.

Tosin Kehinde: The former Manchester United academy player put in a Man of the Match performance for Randers in their 3-0 Danish Superliga win.

Wilfred Ndidi: More of the same from the midfield rock. A solid performance for Leicester city in their dramatic 2-1 win vs Alex Iwobi’s Everton.

Moses Simon : The pacy winger assisted the winning goal for Nantes in their Ligue 1 match vs Toulouse.

Leke James: Fantastic day at the office for the Molde forward. He scored two goals in their final match of the season, before celebrating their Norwegian Eliteserien title win.

Haruna Garba: The forward got back to scoring ways for Debreceni VSC, with 2 goals in their 2-0 Hungary NBI win.

Kelechi Iheanacho (Star of the Week) : Back from (seemingly) the dead. Kelechi Iheanacho came off the bench in the 62nd minute.

He went on to set Jamie Vardy up for the equalizer in the 68th minute before scoring a dramatic 94th minute winner.

It was initially ruled out by the linesman for offside, but the goal was awarded after a VAR review.

Cue the raptures for Kelechi and his Leicester teammates.
