In the opening fixture, Iwobi who plays for Arsenal will be hosting Ndidi and his Leicester City teammate.
If the latter part of last season is anything to go by, Iwobi will be starting on the bench for Arsenal while his compatriot Ndidi is set to take a place in Leicester City’s midfield.
In the corresponding fixture last season, Arsenal beat Leicester City 1-0 but Iwobi did not play in the game while Ndidi completed 90 minutes.
The youngsters might be the only Nigerians involved in the game.
Ahmed Musa is expected to be involved if he remains at Leicester City. He is however expected to leave the Foxes this summer after a frustrating first season in England.
Arsenal are also interested in Nigerian forward Henry Onyekuru although West Ham are leading in the race to sign him.
In other fixtures, Kelechi Iheanacho who has been linked with a move away from Manchester City could be involved in the Citizens’ trip to newly promoted Brighton.
Victor Moses could play in Chelsea’s opening day home clash with Burnley if he has recovered from a toe surgery.
