 (Photo Confirmation) Nigeria Target In Line To Make Eagles Home Debut Vs ChelseaNigeria Football Federation target Freddie Ladapo is in line to feature for the Eagles when they tackle champions Chelsea in the Premier League on Saturday.

The ex-Flying Eagles invitee has been photographed training with the first team as Crystal Palace stepped up their preparations for the match day eight fixture against the Blues.

Manager Roy Hodgson is being forced to play Ladapo after first-choice striker Christian Benteke suffered an injury, and handed him his competitive debut in the 4-0 loss to Manchester United before the second international break of the season.

Before Ladapo's appearance at Old Trafford, the highest division in the pyramid he has played in was the third-tier for Oldham Athletic A.F.C and Shrewsbury Town.

The London-born striker played the last sixteen minutes against the Red Devils, and could come up against Super Eagles star Victor Moses on Saturday.

Crystal Palace have zero points and no goals after their first seven games of the new season.
