By Johnny Edward:

Vincent Enyeama conceded his 27th Ligue 1 goal of the season from the penalty spot in Lille's 2-1 win over Lyon at the Stade des Lumieres on Saturday, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.

The 34 year old shot stopper made a stunning save from a Rafael's header in the 50th minute which kept Lille in the lead, but could not stop Alexandre Lacazette from scoring his 18th of the season from the penalty spot after he had been fouled by Adama Soumaoro with four minute left to play.

The game was Enyeama's 22nd appearance this season and the former Super Eagles captain has kept five clean sheets this term.

In Israel, Anthony Nwakaeme scored his 11th goal of the season for Hapoel Beer Sheva in their 2-0 home win over Hapoel Ironi Kiryat Shmona. 

His compatriot John Ogu played the entire duration of the encounter.

In England Alex Iwobi replaced Jeff Reine-Adelaide in the 71st minute of Arsenal's 5-0 thumping of Southampton in Saturday's Emirates FA Cup at the Saint Mary's Stadium. 

It was Iwobi's second substitute appearance in the competition.

At Stamford Bridge, Super Eagles forward Victor Moses was an unused substitute for Chelsea who spanked Championship club Brentford 4-0. 

Moses has scored four goals in 23 appearances in all competition for the current English Premier League leaders.

At Selhurst Park, Kelechi Iheanacho was not in Manchester City side that beat struggling Crystal Palace 3-0. It was the second straight match Iheanacho missed.

At Anfield, Ovie Ejaria made his third English FA Cup appearance for Liverpool who suffered another shock defeat at home to Championship side,  Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday.

The Reds lost 2-1 to the Championship side four days after crashing out of the English Football League Cup semi-finals to Southampton.

The Nigerian midfielder made way in the 74th minute of the defeat for Emre Can as the Reds battled for a replay.

In Spain, Uche Agbo missed Granada's 2-0 loss away to Villarreal in an early kick-off game. It was the second time the Nigerian defender was missing in consecutive games.

 

In Turkey, Godfrey Oboabona played all 90 minutes for Rizespor who spanked Karabukspor by a lone goal. Oboabona has made 17 starts this term.

At the Antalya Stadium, Kenneth Omeruo played for 79 minutes for Alanyaspor who lost 2-1 to Antalyaspor on Saturday.

He was replaced by Glynor Plet in what was his 14th appearance of the season.
