Super Eagles young forwards; Alex Iwobi, Isaac Success and Kelechi Iheanacho were listed in the Whoscored.com’s top 10 EPL Under-21 players.
The list was compiled by facts and statistic football site, whoscored.com.
Other exciting Under-21 players who were also listed include: Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling, Manchester United’s Luke Shaw, Dele Alli of Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin.
According to whoscored.com, Iheanacho has scored 11 league goals from just 17 shots on target since making his debut last season, to return a stunning on-target conversion rate of 64.7% in England’s top tier.
Three goals and three assists this season means Iheanacho has been directly involved in a league goal every 47.8 minutes in the EPL this term.
For Iwobi, despite not starting each of the Gunners’ last two league games, no Arsenal player has registered more league assists (three) this season than the 20 year old.
Watford’s Isaac Success who has managed just 188 minutes of top-flight action, has shown glimpses of what he is all about in the handful of games he has featured in.
The 20-year-old has made just one league start for the Hornets, that coming in a 1-0 win at Middlesbrough, but netted a crucial equaliser from the bench in the 2-2 draw with Bournemouth last month.
