AfricanFootoball.com takes a look at the African stars you should be keeping an eye on in tonight’s English Premier League action.
There will be two matches in England’s top-flight tonight with Bournemouth visiting Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park and Burnley playing host to defending champions Manchester City at Turf Moor.
Eagles winger Wilfried Zaha will be eager to build on his recent run of form, having scored two goals in his last two league matches. The Ivory Coast international hadn’t scored a goal up until their 2-1 loss to Liverpool late last month, but made it two in two this past weekend.
Jordan Ayew will lead the line for Palace while fellow Ghanaian Jeffrey Schlupp will be confident that he warrants a start after scoring off the bench last time out.
Senegal international Cheikhou Kouyaté is likely to start in midfield, making for Palace line-up full of African stars.
Algeria captain Riyad Mahrez, fresh from ending tenth at the 2019 Ballon d’Or ceremony on Monday evening, is set to be the only African player involved in the night’s other encounter.
The Manchester City winger has scored four and assisted a further eight goals in 16 appearances across all competitions this season.
