Overall,the Nigerian has featured in 180 Premier League games since he made his debut in August 2015. He has started 70 of the games and has been subbed on 209 times.

The 26 year old has scored 38 times and provided 21 assists. He has won just 62 of the 180 games and has lost 78 times.

His most productive season has been the 2020/2021 season when he netted 12 times from 25 appearances.
