Charlie Patino

Arsenal’s teenage sensation Charlie Patino only got a 20-minute cameo in his introduction to Championship football, but the Blackpool fans have already taken a liking to the youngster.

Patino came on but could not change the result, with the Tangerines falling to a 2-0 defeat to Stoke City. However, the midfielder was impressive and could well have earned a start come next weekend.

Harry Clarke

Playing at right wing-back, Harry Clarke opened the scoring for Stoke City against Patino’s Blackpool side.

Nuno Tavares

By far the most impressive of Arsenal’s loanees this week, Nuno Tavares picked up an 8/10 and Man of the Match from L’Equipe as Marseille came away 4-1 winners over Stade de Reims.

The defender was deployed as a left wing-back and rampaged up and down the flank, adding a superb goal to an all-round strong debut performance in Ligue 1.

Folarin Balogun

Coming on as a second-half substitute as Stade de Reims trailed 2-0 to a Tavares-inspired Marseille, Balogun grabbed a consolation goal with a deft header, impressing even as he found himself on the wrong end of a 4-1 scoreline on debut.

Tyreece John-Jules

John-Jules managed 20 minutes for Ipswich Town, coming on as a second half substitute as they beat Forest Green Rovers 2-1 to grab their first win of the season.

Arthur Okonkwo

Highly-rated goalkeeper Okonkwo had a quiet game for Crewe Alexandra as they coasted to a 3-0 win over Harrogate Town to head joint top of League Two. The young ‘keeper kept the first clean sheet of his loan spell, making three saves.

Marcelo Flores

Mexican midfielder Marcelo Flores came on for his Real Oviedo debut in the 56th minute of their clash with Deportivo Alaves, but could not influence the game in any significant way, with the score ending 0-0.

Auston Trusty

Trusty played 90 minutes for Birmingham City as he helped them to a 2-1 win over last season’s playoff finalists Huddersfield Town to send the midlands side joint top of the Championship after two games.

The American managed five clearances and four tackles, picking up a yellow card in the process.

Alex Kirk, Omar Rekik and Mazeed Ogungbo

All three young defenders came off the bench for Ayr United, Sparta Rotterdam and Crawley Town respectively to make their competitive debuts for their new sides.

Ryan Alebiosu

Alebiosu played 90 minutes at right wing-back for Kilmarnock as they fell to a 2-0 defeat to Rangers in the Scottish Premier League.

Ovie Ejeheri

Academy goalkeeper Ejeheri played 90 minutes as National League side Chelmsford FC drew 1-1 with St Albans City.
