The Elite list of Nigerian players who have won the Premier League.


We take a look at all the Nigerian players that have won the Premier League titles and the role they played for their clubs.

Kanu Nwankwo (Arsenal, 2002 & 2004)


Super Eagles great Kanu Nwankwo is the first Nigerian player to win the Premier League. Having joined Arsenal in February 1999, Kanu had to wait three years for his first league title.

Kanu played 23 league games, most of them as a substitute and scored three goals as Arsenal won the league title.


In 2004, the year of the invincibles, Kanu hardly got into the team and just managed just the required 10 games to get a Premier League medal. He scored just one league goal that season.

John Mikel Obi (Chelsea, 2010 & 2015)



Having joined Chelsea in 2006, Mikel had to wait four years for his first league title. Under Carlo Ancelotti, Mikel played 25 games for Chelsea as they won the league. He didn’t score any goal.

In 2015, he won his second Premier League title, this time under Jose Mourinho, Mikel played 18 times and also scored no goal.

Victor Moses (Chelsea, 2017)

Victor Moses just joined this elite list having helped Chelsea to a league title five years after joining them.

Moses was a very influential part of the Premier League title-winning Chelsea squad under Antonio Conte.

Moses made 22 consecutive Premier League starts, 28 league starts and 33 league appearances in total for Chelsea, scoring three goals.


He is the Nigerian player with the most Premier League appearances for a title winning team ever.

Congrats to them.I wish we could have more players playing regularly for top teams in Europe,not the majority of average talents plying their trades in relegation threatened teams and lower divisions of most leagues.
We need CAF African footballers of the year from Nigeria.it has been ages since a Nigerian footballer won that award.
#Respect to Kanu,Oliseh,Ikpeba,Eto'o,Drogba,Yaya... etc
