EPL: Adebayo makes history after scoring in Luton Town’s draw against Everton


Elijah Adebayo has joined the exclusive list of Nigerian players to score 10 goals in a single Premier League season.

The Super Eagles hopeful achieved the feat after scoring in Luton’s 1-1 draw with Everton on Friday night.

The striker cancelled out Dominic Calvert- Lewin’s opener for Everton.

Adebayo is now the tenth Nigerian player to record double digits in a single Premier League campaign.

The other Nigerian players that have managed double digits in a single Premier League season include Efan Ekoku, Nwanwko Kanu, Yakubu Aiyegbeni, Obafemi Martins, Peter Odemwingie, Odion Ighalo, Kelechi Iheanacho, Emmanuel Dennis and Taiwo Awoniyi.

Adebayo is back to full fitness after missing 11 games due to hamstring injury.
