Nigerian star, Kelechi Iheanacho, set an unbeatable Premier League record earlier this week after scoring against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
The Super Eagles forward scored in the 76th minute of the fixture to become the first-ever player to score at least an EPL goal on each day of the week this season.
According to the stats provided by Flashscore Nigeria, the attacker scored his most goals in the English topflight on Sunday (5 goals) so far.

He has also scored twice on Wednesday while he has a goal each for the rest of the days in the week and this is practically impossible for anyone to equal, talkless of breaking it.
The former Manchester City forward also holds the record for the first goal awarded by VAR in England, as well as the first fourth substitute in the FA Cup.
The records as listed:
1. Kelechi Iheanacho is the first player in England to be awarded a VAR goal.
2. He is also the first fourth substitute in the FA Cup
Iheanacho is also the player with the most Premier League goals since the start of March, scoring 11 goals after 11 games.
3. The Super Eagles striker is also the first player to score an EPL goal on each day of the week
Meanwhile, the Nigeria international has also scored 19 goals so far this season - setting a personal record in English football and also winning his first-ever FA Cup title after their triumph over Chelsea at Wembley Stadium earlier this month.
However, he could miss out on playing Champions League football next season if Leicester City fail to finish fourth on the Premier League table this campaign.
The Foxes face Tottenham Hotspur in their last EPL game of the season and they will hope for a favourable result at the end of the game.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Kelechi Iheanacho's influence seems to be spreading fast in the United Kingdom as he was interviewed in the Igbo language by a foreign presenter.
The 24-year-old forward felt surprised by the Premier League presenter who greeted him and asked for his name in his traditional language before the show continued.
Iheanacho must have felt outrightly proud at that very moment as he couldn't spill everything in his mouth afterwards.
