Chukwueze then followed up, opening his goal account for the season with a brilliant run after picking up the ball just past the half-way mark.

The winger beat his markers, dribbling behind them before hitting a precise low shot, aimed for the bottom left corner and beyond the goalkeeper’s reach.

However Villarreal’s two goal lead was halved two minutes after Chukwueze’s goal.

Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Roberto Soldado from a fine header before Antonio Puertas scored the equalize nine minutes before time.

Former Flying Eagles midfielder Ramon Azeez returned to topflight action as he was introduced as a second half sub for Granada and he’ll be glad his side salvaged a point.

Chukwueze play all 90 minutes, his performance assuring Villarreal he is one they can count on and a player the
fans should watch out for in La Liga this season.
