Kenneth Omeruo posted a five star performance at the heart of Alanyaspor defence to help his side edge a five goal thriller 3-2 against Gaziantepspor in a top flight league game in Turkey.
In what is his fourth consecutive loan spell away from Stamford Bridge, Omeruo has grown in leaps and bounds this season, with the defender going as far as distinguishing himself as a defensive midfielder.
Omeruo who has also distinguished himself as a right back for the Nigeria national team in their last two games returned to his favourite role in central defence for his team, and played a huge role in helping his side survive a late onslaught from the home side.
Alanyaspor were comfortably ahead, leading by 3-0 before Gaziantepspor started a late rally with two goals in two minutes in the 87th and 90th minute respectively.
Gaziantepsor late attempt to grab something from the game brought out the best from the Chelsea loanee who marshaled the back line of his team to ensure they didn’t throw away two points.
