Chelsea loanee helped keep clean sheet against Turkish giants

Kenneth Omeruo

Chelsea loanee Kenneth Omeruo started in defence for Alanyaspor who held Turkish league giants Trabzonspor to a goalless draw at the Akyazi stadium on Monday 20 February.

Omeruo put on an impressive display at centre-back, making three tackles, two interceptions and the highest number of clearances (4) for his side.

The Nigerian international defender was impressive in the air, comfortably dealing with aerial balls but his passing was rather disappointing and he only achieved a 58 percent accuracy.

The Mediterranean based side have now kept clean sheets in their last two games with Omeruo starting.

The 23-year-old defender joined the newly promoted side on loan from Chelsea at the start of the season.

Omeruo already had experience playing in the Turkish league after another loan spell at Kasimpasa.

The powerful defender was linked with a move to reigning champions Besiktas over the summer but the deal fell through and he joined Alanyaspor instead.

Omeruo has made 15 appearances for Alanyaspor in the Super Lig this season.

Alanyaspor moved into 14th place following the draw, just two positions above the relegation zone.
