Chelsea were delighted with the performance of Kenneth Omeruo in the last round of matches in La Liga after the Nigeria international helped goalkeeper Pichu Cuéllar to post a shutout in CD Leganes’ 3-0 win against Sevilla at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán.
Unarguable, this has been Omeruo’s best season on loan at a foreign club since his arrival at Chelsea in January 2012 as he has been a nightmare for strikers in the competitive LaLiga Santander.
Chelsea loan coach Eddie Newton has been keeping an eye on Omeruo as well as the official website of the Stamford Bridge outfit.
In their weekly review of their players out on loan, Chelsea’s official website sang the praises of the Nigeria international : ”Kenneth Omeruo and Leganes were in fine form on Friday night, recording a shock 3-0 win away at fourth-placed Sevilla. ”Omeruo made the La Liga team of the week thanks to the performance.”
Leganes, who have 45 points from 36 games, guaranteed their La Liga survival thanks to their stunning win against Sevilla.
