Omeruo in line to start for Chelsea in pre-season friendly


Super Eagles and Chelsea of England defender Kenneth Omeruo will have a chance to convince Antonio conte on Saturday when he takes to the pitch as Chelsea take on lower division side Crawley Town in a preseason friendly.

Omeruo who is yet to play any competitive game for the English champions since he joined Chelsea will line up alongside players from the reserve team.

The defender who has been sent out on loan four times (ADO Den Haag, Middlesbrough, Kasimpasa and
Alanyaspor) will have an opportunity to play alongside another Nigerian defender Fikayomi Tomori who was part of the junior Three Lions squad that won FIFA U-20 World Cup in South Korea.

Omeruo is already thinking about a Turkish Super Lig return with hosts of clubs jostling for his signature.
