Iwobi, Aribo, & Balogun start from the bench for Everton, Rangers in Merseyside & Old Firm derbies

Super Eagles stars Alex Iwobi and Leon Balogun would be starting from the bench when Everton and Rangers file out for the Merseyside and Old Firm derbies respectively.

The Lunch-time games in England would see in-form Everton go up against reigning Premier League champions Liverpool without Alex Iwobi in the starting XI.

Same in Scotland, Rangers travel to the Celtic Park to play Celtic without Leon Balogun and Joe Aribo in the starting XI.

All three players are expected to feature at some point and would have been dropped by their coaches for these games because of the long trip back to England and Scotland.

The games would start at 12:30 pm Nigerian time.
