Frank Onyeka has joined the long list of Nigerians that have scored in the Premier League after finding the back of the net in Brentford’s 2-0 win over Sheffield United on Saturday at the Gtech Community Stadium.

Onyeka who came on as a late substitute for the Bees scored in second-half stoppage time to secure Brentford a much-needed win over Sheffield United.

After a barren first half, the game burst into life after the break. Oliver Arblaster turned Mikkel Damsgaard’s cutback into his own net on 63 minutes, before Onyeka wrapped up the points late on with his first Bees goal.

With Saturday’s victory, Brentford now have 32 points from 33 games and they are occupying the 14th position on the Premier League standings.

At the Etihad, Manchester City fired an ominous warning to their Premier League title rivals Liverpool and Arsenal with a 5-1 hammering of Luton.

The big win has helped Pep Guardiola’s men move to the top of the table with 73 points from 32 games.

City’s goals from Saturday’s outing were shared around, with one for Erling Haaland and another for Mateo Kovacic who scored a spectacular goal from the edge of the box.

Luton notched a consolation through Ross Barkley but were well beaten.

Awoniyi still missing

Elsewhere, Taiwo Awoniyi was missing in action as Nottingham Forest and Wolverhampton Wanderers settled for a 2-2 draw. Awoniyi’s compatriot, Ola Aina featured for 89 minutes before making way for Nuno Tavares.
