Frank Onyeka in the spotlight as Brentford face Tottenham on Boxing day


A surprise 1-2 win over Manchester City meant Frank Onyeka and Brentford went into the World Cup break in high spirits.

As English Premier League action resumes on Boxing day, Nigerian Midfielder Frank Onyeka is in the spotlight with concerns over the effect of the break on his game.


With Nigeria missing at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, Onyeka has been off competitive action.

His debut season for Brentford was not fantastic, understandably his move from Danish side Midtylland to Brentford was a big leap and so he needed time to learn the ropes.

Just before the 2022 FIFA World Cup, the Super Eagle will begin to show signs that he has come on board and was ready to star for Thomas Frank’s men.

The Nigerian Midfielder assisted one of Ivan Toney’s goals in the 2-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion, following that up with another impressive display vs Chelsea .

That run will hit peak status as he was a dominant feature as Brentford defeated Manchester City in the last game before the World Cup.


How Onyeka and the Bees will fare as English Premier League action resumes on Monday afternoon is a subject of previews as they host Tottenham Hotspurs on December 26.

Brentford Head Coach Thomas Frank may decide to stick with the set-up from the World Cup break but that may not count with the uncertainties from a long break.

But fans of Nigerian Midfielder Frank Onyeka will pray his rich vein of form continues vs Tottenham Hotspurs.

That way, Onyeka’s growing influence within the ranks at Brentford will move from flight to permanent status and provide the confidence for him to deliver consistently.
