- Andy King made his debut for Swansea City as a late substitute on Saturday
- Leonardo Ulloa, Callum Elder and Elliott Moore were also in action over the weekend
- Ahmed Musa recently scored a brace for CSKA Moscow during a friendly triumph over Elche
King made his maiden appearance for Swansea City by coming off the bench late on to help grind out a 1-0 triumph over Burnley.
The Swans secured three vital Premier League points thanks to Ki Sung-Yeung’s late effort. King could next be involved on Saturday 24 February when Carlos Carvalhal’s men head to Brighton.
Ulloa, currently on loan at Brighton & Hove Albion, was also on the end of a positive result this weekend as the striker helped Chris Hughton’s men to a 1-1 draw at Stoke City.

The Argentine emerged as a substitute with just under 20 minutes to play, as the Seagulls claimed a valuable point after stopper Mat Ryan saved Charlie Adam's 90th-minute penalty. Next up for Brighton is an Emirates FA Cup clash with Coventry City.
On the same day, Elder notched up another 90 minutes for Wigan Athletic, but could not prevent them from suffering a 3-1 reverse to Southend United.
The left back has now made a total of 17 appearances for Wigan in all competitions and will hope to be involved in the Latics’ clash with Blackpool on Tuesday.

The final Fox in professional action this weekend was young centre back Moore, who on Sunday completed 90 minutes in OH Leuven’s 1-0 Proximus League win at second-placed Lierse.
The defender has benefitted from regular game time this term under former City manager Nigel Pearson, who sees his team currently occupy third position in the table. Next up is a home clash with Beerschot-Wilrijk on Saturday.
With the Russian winter break still in effect, Ahmed Musa’s CSKA Moscow have played series of friendlies in recent weeks, with their win over Spanish side Elche particularly enjoyable for the City forward.

He opened the scoring early on, before notching a second shortly after the hour mark during the 3-0 triumph. Musa could potentially make his first start for the Russian outfit when their 2017/18 campaign resumes in the UEFA Europa League against Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday.
In addition, midfielder Nampalys Mendy was an unused substitute during Nice’s 3-2 Ligue 1 defeat to Dijon, while Islam Slimani (Newcastle United) and Bartosz Kapustka (SC Freiburg) did not feature over the weekend.
