The 20-year-old has scored six goals in eight league appearances for Les Dogues this season and will be determined to show Nigerians why Tammy Abraham is not needed in the Super Eagles.
Lille and Chelsea are third and fourth respectively on the table with zero points, while Ajax and Valencia occupy the first two spots.
