Arthur Okonkwo has been praised for his performances on loan at Crewe Alexandra, after keeping yet another clean sheet this weekend.
Playing against AFC Wimbledon on Saturday, Arthur Okonkwo kept his 10th clean sheet on loan with Crewe Alexandra – nine in League Two, the other in the FA Cup.
Though the resulting 0-0 draw will have been frustrating to Crewe fans, it was yet another example of Okonkwo winning his team and supporters points just like they can win at https://top10-casino-reviews.com/1xbet-vs-bet9ja.
Of Okonkwo’s 10 clean sheets, all but one of them have come either in 0-0 draws or 1-0 wins. So on nine separate occasions, his clean sheet has either earned Crewe a point, all three points, or progression to the next round.
It’s little wonder the goalkeeper is earning praise for his performances. Josh Green writes for The Real EFL:
“Arthur has set League Two alight with back-to-back penalty saves and multiple game-changing saves. He has transformed Crewe adding some stability to their back line…”
Green adds that he believes Crewe would be even lower than 17th in the table without Okonkwo’s performances.
As it is, Crewe are 12 points clear of the relegation zone, so it would take a real collapse in the second half of the campaign to be at genuine risk of the drop.
Looking up the table, Crewe are nine points behind the play-off places, with a game in hand on most of the teams above them.
It’s certainly not realistic to expect a late play-off charge, but it’s also not totally out of the question if the team can improve their attacking record.
Okonkwo’s work in goal has so far masked Crewe having the second-worst goals scored tally in the division. If they can address that, perhaps they could rise up the table.
Either way, the Arsenal 21-year-old is boosting his reputation with a solid year on loan so far.
