On Loan

Chelsea Here Chelsea There

We have the latest of our loanees, including a maiden goal in the Championship…

On Sunday, in the Football League Championship’s televised game, Reece James (pictured top) netted a brilliant curling free-kick early on to give Wigan the lead on the day they were marking a change in ownership, but league leaders Leeds recovered to win 2-1. It was the 18-year-old’s first goal for his loan club. Wigan are 16th in the table

Moving up a division, Kenedy helped Newcastle record their first win of the Premier League season this weekend, beating Watford 1-0 at home courtesy of Ayoze Perez's goal. The Brazilian had a chance to get his own name on the score sheet in the first half but saw his powerful shot blocked by Adrian Mariappa.

There were also three points for Everton and Kurt Zouma as they continued their impressive recent form to record a fourth win in five Premier League matches, defeating Brighton 3-1.

Derby duo Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori were back at Stamford Bridge in midweek, competing against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup. Mount provided the assist for Martyn Waghorn to score the Rams' second equaliser in the 3-2 victory for the Blues, as well as twice going close to finding the net himself. Unfortunately for Tomori his name was on the score sheet for the wrong reason, after he miscued a clearance to open the scoring with an early own-goal.

Back in the Championship and in the Friday-night kick-off, Tammy Abraham set up Jack Grealish's opening goal with a perfectly weighted pass as Aston Villa beat Bolton 2-0 at Villa Park.

Trevoh Chalobah played the whole of Paul Lambert's first game in charge of Ipswich, drawing 1-1 at home with 10-man Preston.

Tomas Kalas and Jay Dasilva lined up together in defence as Bristol City lost 3-2 at Reading, Todd Kane came on as a late substitute to help Hull see out a 1-0 win over West Brom and Kasey Palmer played the last half-an-hour as Blackburn beat QPR courtesy of an 87th-minute penalty.

North of the border, Ruben Sammut came off the bench during both Falkirk's matches last week, a 1-1 draw with Ross County and losing 1-0 to Ayr.

In Spain, Michy Batshauyi came on at half-time to help Valencia beat Ebro in the Copa del Rey midweek and was introduced as a substitute again when they were beaten 1-0 at home by Girona in La Liga. Kenneth Omeruo and Leganes earned a late draw with Atletico Madrid. Jhoao Rodriguez was brought on from the bench as Tenerife lost 2-0 at Numancia.

Tiemoue Bakayoko made his first Serie A start for AC Milan, earning the praise of manager Gennaro Gattuso for his part in their midweek 2-1 win over Genoa, courtesy of an injury-time winner, a feat they repeated on Sunday by scoring in the 97th-minute to beat Udinese 1-0 away. Bakayoko had retained his place and played the full game.

Mario Pasalic came on late in Atalanta’s 2-1 away win in Bologna, and there was also success on the road for Torino and Ola Aina. They won 4-1 at Sampdoria with our Nigerian international assisting with a cross for the third goal.
Milan are fourth in Serie A with Torino seventh and Atalanta 10th.

In France, Victorien Angban played for Metz as they exited the Coupe de la Ligue in midweek, 2-1 at the hands of Amiens.

Eduardo and Jake Clarke-Salter were powerless to prevent Vitesse Arnhem becoming PSV Eindhoven's latest victims in the Eredivisie, losing 1-0 away, which was fairly respectable given the home side have now won all 11 league games since the start of the season with an average winning margin of more than three goals.
In the Dutch second division, Kyle Scott scored in Telstar’s 2-1 home win over Go Ahead Eagles.

There was plenty of late drama for Kylian Hazard in Belgium, with mixed fortunes. He was part of the Cercle Bruges side which lost 2-0 at Eupen on Tuesday, conceding both goals in injury time, but then scored an 81st-minute equaliser against Mouscron on Saturday. Cercle snatched a winner in the last minute of normal time.

Danilo Pantic and Partizan Belgrade were held to a 1-1 draw at Cukaricki in midweek.

In League One in England, Ike Ugbo came off the bench after 20 minutes due to an injury and helped Scunthorpe to come back from three goals down to draw 3-3 with Oxford, with all three of the Iron's goals arriving in the space of six second-half minutes. Bradley Collins and Burton recorded a dominant 3-1 win at Walsall.

Jacob Maddox was one of the stars of Cheltenham's 6-2 win over Arsenal's Under-21s in the Checkatrade Trophy. He scored twice, both from crosses early in the second half, before featuring throughout as they drew 2-2 with Mansfield in League One at the weekend. Nathan Baxter ended up on the losing side with Yeovil at Morecambe, going down 2-1 despite saving a controversial first-half penalty.
