On-loan Chelsea defender Kenneth Omeruo was not given a spot in the starting line-up in the Kasımpaşa v Bursaspor clash today.

Omeruo joined Kaısmpaşa on loan over the summer transfer window and established himself as a first-team regular until picking up an injury just before the international break.

The 21-year-old is one of two Chelsea players on loan in Turkey with the other being Marko Marin at Trabzonspor.

The Nigerian international has yet to return to full match fitness but could feature at some stage in today’s game.

Kasımpaşa have the best defensive record in the league having conceded just four times in eight games this season and have also kept an impressive four clean sheets.
