Welcome to this weekends Loanees Watch – Young Guns’ analysis, reports and updates on the progress of the young starlets currently plying their trade away from the Emirates Stadium. You can read all the latest reports below.
Carlos Vela was not in action this weekend, as West Brom played on Monday.
Kyle Bartley played the full 90 minutes as Rangers beat St Johnstone 4-0. Bartley played alongside Majid Bougherra at centre back in a 4-4-2 formation. The youngster did concede a handful of free-kicks but made some key blocks as Rangers claimed an important win in their hunt for the title.
Aaron Ramsey played the full 90 minutes for Cardiff City as they beat Hull City 2-0. Ramsey, making his final appearance for the Bluebirds before returning to Arsenal, had one of his quietest games, in an end-to-end affair. Jay Emmanuel-Thomas came off the bench with 10 minutes left and scored the second, with a superb volleyed finish.
Henri Lansbury played the full 90 minutes as Norwich City beat Barnsley 2-0. Lansbury delivered a number of excellent crosses, but did look tired towards the end of the game.
Sanchez Watt came off the bench to play the final 29 minutes of Leeds United’s 3-0 defeat to Swansea City. Watt struggled for service as Swansea won comfortably.
Vito Mannone was an unused substitute as Hull City lost 2-0 to Cardiff City.
Craig Eastmond was an unused substitute as Millwall drew 0-0 with Nottingham Forest.
Benik Afobe started and played 84 minutes for Huddersfield Town as they drew 2-2 with Leyton Orient. Afobe was dangerous right from the off. His right wing cross was turned in by strike partner Jordan Rhodes after just 3 minutes for the perfect start. Afobe turned in one of his best shifts yet, winning the Man of the Match award.
James Shea was an unused substitute for Southampton as they beat Swindon Town 4-1.
Mark Randall was an unused substitute for Rotherham as they lost 4-2 to Burton Albion.
Gavin Hoyte missed Lincoln City’s 4-2 defeat to Barnet through injury.
Ryo Miyaichi started and played 86 minutes for Feyenoord as they beat FC Groningen 5-1. Miyaichi kept his place on the left of the front three and again turned in an impressive display, despite nursing a rib injury. He set up Georginio Wijnaldum’s second goal, cutting the ball back from the touchline. Ryo then helped Wijnaldum get his hat-trick, by winning a penalty which was converted.
Francis Coquelin started and played 51 minutes for Lorient against Valenciennes before being sent off. The Frenchman returned to the Lorient team following injury, and was unlucky to receive the second yellow card for a sloppy foul. Gilles Sunu came off the bench with only stoppage time left.
Armand Traoré was an unused substitute as Juventus lost 2-0 to Bologna.
Wellington Silva was an unused substitute as Levante beat Osasuna 2-1.
Pedro Botelho played the full 90 minutes for Cartagena as they lost 2-0 to Córdoba. Despite previously keeping clean sheets when at left back, Botelho was moved to a role in the front three. He received little service as Córdoba cruised to victory.
Samuel Galindo missed UD Salamanca’s 4-0 defeat to Alcorcon through injury.
