Alanyaspor crushed Kayserispor 3-0 at home in the Super Lig on Friday evening to move into 10th place on 14 points.

On-loan Chelsea defender Kenneth Omeruo started for Alanyaspor and put on an impressive display helping his side keep their third clean sheet of the season.

Omeruo made the highest number of interceptions over the course of the 90 minutes (4) according to Whoscored and also made several important clearances and blocks.

The 23-year-old has been inconsistent form wise this season and his side had shipped in five goals in their last two games heading into the Kayserispor clash.

Omeruo joined Alanyaspor on loan over the summer after spending last season at fellow Super Lig outfit Kasimpasa.

The Nigerian international was close to a move to reigning Super Lig champions Besiktas however, the deal fell through just days before his temporary transfer to newly promoted Alanyaspor.
