Kenneth Omeruo - Leganes
The Nigeria stars helped Javier Aguirre's side seal their third win in the Spanish top-flight on Sunday

Nigeria defenders Kenneth Omeruo and Chidozie Awaziem helped Leganes keep a clean sheet while Morocco's Youssef En-Nesyri was on target in their 2-0 win over Espanyol.

Omeruo and Awaziem were in action for the duration as Leganes kept their second clean sheet in La Liga this season.

In the second half, En-Nesyri gave the hosts a two-goal lead at the Estadio Municipal de Butarque with his fourth league goal of the campaign.

He was later replaced on the stroke of full-time as Leganes bolstered their chances of getting out of the relegation zone with 13 points after 17 league outings - two points adrift of safety.

Their next La Liga fixture is a visit to Real Valladolid on January 3.
