The recognition keeps coming for Super Eagles target Eberechi Eze on the back of his imperious display for Crystal Palace in their 4-1 rout of a Leeds United side coached by the respected tactician Marcelo Bielsa, Netsentertainment.com
The former Queens Park Rangers star set up the opening goal scored by Scott Dann in the 12th minute and doubled the advantage with a brilliant free-kick midway through the first half – his first goal and assist for the Eagles.
Eze was officially named Crystal Palace’s Man of the Match for his efforts vs Leeds United and was also Whoscored.com’s star performer with a rating of 9.13.
Not surprisingly, the England U21 international has been included in the English Premier League Team of the Week announced by football statistics website Whoscored, an illustrious list also featuring Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes, Chelsea duo Hakim Ziyech and Ben Chilwell, and Tottenham Hotspur’s England captain Harry Kane.
Eze narrowly beat Aston Villa striker Ollie Watkins (9.12) to the Premier League Player of the Week gong.
Against Leeds United, the 22-year-old played two shots one of which was on target, made two key passes, was fouled three times and was accurate in 84.9 percent of his passes.
But his defensive statistics are more eye-popping, with a joint game-high five tackles and joint team-high four interceptions.
