The Nigeria internationals two goals came within three minutes in the first half.

Owen highlighted the qualities that make the former Union Berlin player dangerous to play against.

You see the goalscorer, Im not going to try to pronounce his name (Awoniyi).

Hes scoring goals, hes got pace, he can finish like he did with the first one, and then he gets back to goal as well, Owen told Premier League Productions.Advertisement

Hes equally as dangerous as that, so very hard to play against because a lot of players that maybe havent got pace, you can try to squeeze them outside the box.

Awoniyi has scored six goals and provided one assist in 24 appearances for Nottingham Forest this season.Advertisement Advertisement
