Chuba Akpom - PAOK
The Arsenal graduate has been used sparingly since his summer move and, again, came off the bench but to lead his team to victory this time around
Chuba Akpom scored his first PAOK goal to help the Stadio Toumbas outfit claim a 2-1 victory over Panetolikos in Sunday's Greek Super League encounter.

Since his move from Arsenal to Greece in the summer, the 23-year-old has been on the fringe of Razvan Lucescu‘s set-up, with all of his seven appearances for the side coming as a substitute.

On Sunday, he continued with his bit-part role but came off the bench in the 57th minute to put up a man-of-the-match display.

He netted what would be the winner after Nikolaos Marinakis’ own goal had opened the scoring for the hosts in the 63rd minute [three before the Nigeria trainee's effort].

Sierra Leone striker Alhassan Kamara halved the deficit in the 73rd minute, but the Super League table-toppers held on for their ninth win in the league this season.

PAOK play Ergotelis in a Cup encounter on Wednesday, and the former Sint-Truiden attacker will hope to have done enough to get his full debut.
