AFRICANS IN THE PREMIERSHIP… 

In Saturday’s ‘big’ game Salomon Kalou scored the 80th minute equaliser for Chelsea, nodding home John Obi Mikel’s free kick, helping to keep them six points clear of opponents Manchester United. 

At the Reebok Stadium Emmanuel Eboue scored Arsenal’s first and Emmanuel Adebayor got the assist for their third in a 3-1 win over Bolton, sending Arsenal to the top of the Premiership

City handed debuts to Guinean defender Kamil Zayette, on loan from Young Boys Bern, as well as Gabonese international striker Daniel Cousin but neither was able to prevent Everton coming back from 2-0 down and take a point. 

Egyptian international Amr Zaki, the ‘English Premier League African Player of the Month for August’ (to give him his full title), failed to continue his impressive form as Wigan and Tottenham played out a 0-0 draw. 

And bad news for Middlesborough’s Egyptian Mido (groin injury) and Ivorian West Brom defender Abdoulaye Meite (ankle) who both picked up injuries during the warm-ups in their respective games. 

…AND IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP 

Scottish-Nigerian Chris Iwelumo was the only African scorer in the Championship and he netted a hat-trick for Wolves against Preston. He turned into the proverbial villain however getting sent off 14 minutes from time for a headbutt.

Emmanuel Eboue dominated the headlines, eclipsing Emmanuel Adebayor who scored the only goal as Arsenal struggled to their 1-0 victory over Wigan. The Ivory Coast international, booed by his own fans, got taken off having appeared as a substitute himself and left the pitch head down and dejected.

Stoke had Mamady Sidibe (Mali) and Amady Faye (Senegal) to thank for their point earned against Newcastle, Faye's last minute equaliser dramatically sealing the draw.

Finally, Zimbabwean Mwaruwari Benjani opened the scoring for Man City in their 1-1 draw away to Fulham.

Only two African scorers in this weekend’s Premiership but both clinched 1-0 wins for their teams: Mamaday Sidibe won the Stoke vs. West Brom relegation battle, the Malian netting an 84th minute winner. On Monday, Senegal’s Henri Camara scored the only goal for Wigan against Everton. 

In the Championship, Congolese-Belgian Emile Mpenza scored for Plymouth Argyle in their 2-1 home win against Cardiff. Hameur Bouazza, born in France but an Algerian international, scored what proved to be a consolation goal for Charlton in their 5-2 defeat at home to Sheffield United. Another Malian, Jimmy Kebe, scored the only goal for Reading but it wasn’t enough as Southampton pulled off a shock 2-1 win. Scots-Nigerian Chris Iwelumo scored twice for Wolves and they stayed top beating Blackpool 2-0.

There was another full round of Championship games on Tuesday but Iwelumo was the only player to score, netting another brace as Wolves won 3-1 against Sheffield United.
