On Loan

Chelsea Here Chelsea There

There have been goals, assists and clean sheets for our loan players in weekend league games and midweek, knockout action…

Trevoh Chalobah (pictured) scored his first professional goal as 10-man Ipswich Town earned a valuable point against Aston Villa. Chalobah cancelled out Villa’s opener with a stylish finish and then played his part as the Tractor Boys held firm for a 1-1 draw, despite having a player sent off in the first half.

Elsewhere in the Championship, Kasey Palmer played in Blackburn’s 1-0 win over Hull, with Todd Kane lining up for the Tigers. Reece James started for Wigan who drew 2-2 at home against Nottingham Forest, with the visitors netting a late penalty to earn a share of the spoils.

Lewis Baker came off the bench for Leeds who beat Rotherham 2-0, while Fikayo Tomori and Mason Mount both featured in Derby’s 2-1 defeat at Millwall. Jay Dasilva was a late substitute for Bristol City, who were beaten 2-0 by Middlesbrough.

In the weekend’s Premier League fixtures, Kenedy attracted the headlines after Newcastle’s goalless draw with Cardiff City, with the Brazilian missing a stoppage-time penalty having earlier been involved in an incident with a Bluebirds player, but not one which will result in retrospective action.

In League One, Dujon Sterling helped Coventry City pick up their first three points of the season thanks to a 1-0 win over Plymouth. In League Two, Nathan Baxter kept a clean sheet as Yeovil recorded an impressive 4-0 win at Notts County. Jacob Maddox played for Cheltenham who lost 1-0 against Carlisle.

Three Blues loanees were on the scoresheet in last week's Carabao Cup first-round fixtures. Tomori and Mount both found the back of the net for Derby, who beat Oldham 2-0, and Palmer netted for Blackburn as they thrashed Carlisle 5-1.
 

Baker provided the assist for Leeds’ second goal in a 2-1 win over Bolton, with Jamal Blackman making his debut between the sticks for the Elland Road club. Maddox started for Cheltenham Town, who beat Colchester 3-2 on penalties.

Chalobah will be especially pleased with his goal against Aston Villa on Saturday as he missed a spot-kick in Ipswich's penalty shoot-out defeat to Exeter. Dasilva played at the back for Bristol City who lost 1-0 to Plymouth. Sterling was used in a more advanced position on the right for Coventry in a 2-0 defeat against Oxford United and Charlie Colkett came off the bench as Shrewsbury were beaten 2-1 by Burton Albion. Baxter was in goal as Yeovil suffered a narrow 1-0 loss to Aston Villa.

There was Europa League action last week as well, with Danilo Pantic providing two assists for Partizan in a 3-1 win over Nordsjaelland as the Serbian club progressed with a 5-3 aggregate victory. Mario Pasalic also set up a goal, for Italian club Atalanta, who advanced thanks to a 6-1 aggregate win over Hapoel Haifa. Partizan will face Besiktas this Thursday, with Atalanta taking on FC Copenhagen. Jake Clarke-Salter was sent off for Vitesse as the Dutch club exited the competition following a 2-0 aggregate loss to Basel.
 

Across Europe’s leagues at the weekend, Ola Aina made his Serie A debut for Torino, coming on as a first-half substitute to replace an injured team-mate, but there was late disappointment as Roma scored a last-minute winner.

In France’s Ligue 1, Matt Miazga featured at the back for 10-man Nantes in a 2-0 loss against Dijon. In the Dutch Second Division, Kyle Scott made his bow as a second-half substitute for Telstar who were beaten 1-0 by Waalwijk.

There was a good result for Nathan and Atletico Mineiro in Brazil, 3-0 away at Botafogo, although the goals came after the attacker had been replaced on the hour.
