Yangel Herrera

Herrera started for Girona in their 1-0 loss to Celta Vigo on Saturday but was taken off after just 10 minutes with an injury.

Zack Steffen

Missed Middlesbrough’s 2-1 win over Swansea due to injury.

Chris Wilder confirmed Steffen had a knee issue: “He jarred his knee in training on Thursday, didn’t train Friday and then failed a fitness test this morning.”

Yan Couto

Couto was in from the off as Girona lost 1-0 to Celta Vigo. The right-back was pretty average over the weekend, winning eight of 15 ground duels, having a 75 per cent pass accuracy, making two key passes and completing four of seven dribbles attempted.

Nahuel Bustos

Did not make it off the bench for Sao Paulo’s 1-0 loss vs Fortaleza.

Diego Rosa

Yet to feature this week as FC Vizela are not in action until Monday evening.

Issa Kabore

Made his Marseille debut over the weekend, coming on for the final 12 minutes as his side smashed Nice 3-0.

Kabore was brought on in the right-wing-back role and was ok. He made two tackles, completed all five of his passes and made one clearance.

Liam Delap

Liam Delap started and completed 90 minutes for Stoke as they beat Blackburn 1-0 on Saturday but his search for a first goal goes on.

And unfortunately for Delap, he was once again fairly poor last time out. Despite being the starting centre-forward, he did not manage a single shot on target, with his two efforts on the day being blocked.

He also had little luck with his passing, completing just two of eight attempted. Delap attempted six dribbles and completed two – an afternoon to forget for the young striker.

James McAtee

McAtee started in midfield for Sheffield United as they drew 1-1 with Luton but was taken offer at half-time following a less than impressive showing.

McAtee had a 63 per cent passing accuracy, failed to connect with any of his four crosses, completed just one long ball, had zero shots on target, did not complete a dribble and failed to win any of his five duels.

He also failed to make a single clearance, block, tackle or interception.

Tommy Doyle

The man who replaced McAtee vs Luton was Tommy Doyle. He had a better showing than his Manchester City counterpart but again didn’t set the world alight.

Doyle was slightly better than McAtee defensively and also added a bit more of an attacking threat on the day.

Taylor Harwood-Bellis

Harwood-Bellis put on another commanding display from Burnley and is quickly becoming their most impressive centre-back.

Burnley beat Wigan 5-1 over the weekend. During the game, Harwood-Bellis made two clearances, blocked three shots, made two interceptions, one tackle and was not dribbled past.

His passing was also decent and he connected with four long balls.
