Goal heroes Osimhen, Tomori included in Serie A Team of the Week

SUPER Eagles striker Victor Osimhen has been named as one of the top performers in Serie A over the weekend.

Performance-tracking outlet WhoScored is a trusted source to rate players across Europe’s prominent leagues, and it included Osimhen and the England defender with Nigerian heritage, Fikayo Tomori, in its best XI in the Italian top flight for games played on Saturday and Sunday.

Osimhen scored twice in Napoli’s 4-1 win away to Spezia on Saturday, taking his tally for his first season in Italy to 10 goals in 21 Serie A appearances.

The 22-year-old Nigeria international has hit a rich vein of form in recent weeks, scoring seven goals in his last eight matches.

Osimhen is rated 9.0 out of 10, giving him the fourth highest score among the week’s best 11 players.

On his part, Tomori also scored on Sunday, netting his first goal for AC Milan in the spectacular 3-0 away win over deposed champions Juventus.

The centre-back, who joined Milan on loan from Chelsea in January, has made 19 appearances for the Italian club, including 14 in Serie A.

He headed home the third goal in the 82nd minute to complete Milan’s stunning win and keep their UEFA Champions League dreams alive.

Tomori is rated 8.9 by WhoScored, the highest rating among the four defenders in the XI.

Milan’s win on Sunday took them past Juventus into third place with 72 points from 35 matches, two points and one spot above Napoli. Juventus are in fifth place a further point behind.

The highest-rated player in the XI is Roma midfielder Lorenzo Pellegrini with a perfect 10, followed by his teammates Henrikh Mkhitaryan (9.5) and Borja Mayoral (9.3) following their 5-0 win over Simeon ‘Simy’ Nwankwo’s Crotone on Sunday.

Cagliari goalkeeper Alessio Cragno has the lowest rating with 7.6 points.
