How Arsenal’s loan stars are getting on this season


A total of 17 Arsenal loanees were in action across 11 divisions over the weekend.

Here is how all 17 got on.

For all of our dedicated Arsenal transfer news, injuries, fixtures and results, take a look at 101Arsenal.

Folarin Balogun (Stade de Reims)

Balogun had a tough day at the office for Reims as they drew 0-0 to Lorient, with the youngster not able to find the target with his only shot of the game, while he also committed four fouls and won just 3 of his 21 duels.’

Charlie Patino (Blackpool)

Patino played his part in a crazy 3-3 draw with Sheffield United, in which Blackpool were reduced to just 9 men as well as having a substitute sent off. The youngster was tidy but unspectacular.

Tyreece John-Jules (Ipswich Town)

John-Jules was a second-half substitute but could not prevent his side from slipping to a 1-0 defeat to Lincoln City, just their second of the season.

Nicolas Pepe (OGC Nice)

Arsenal’s record-signing was a first half substitute as his side grabbed a point against AJ Auxerre, with the Ivorian not particularly impressive from the bench. The winger created just one chance and managed two shots, one on target, from outside the area.

Pablo Mari (Monza)

Mari found himself on the losing side for the first time under Monza’s new manager, as his side suffered a 1-0 defeat against Empoli. The defender played 80 minutes, making two tackles and winning six of his seven duels.

Nuno Tavares (Marseille)

Nuno Tavares had a tough afternoon against Paris Saint Germain, being taken off after 70 minutes, winning zero tackles and just four of his nine duels.

Arthur Okonkwo (Crewe Alexandra)

The young goalkeeper could not prevent his side from falling to a 3-0 defeat to Tranmere Rovers, despite making a couple of fine saves. He could not do much about any of the three goals, however.

Auston Trusty (Birmingham City)

Trusty continues to impress in the heart of the Birmingham City defence as the Blues managed another victory, 2-0 over Hull City. He continues to further his claim to being on the plane to Qatar with the USA this November.

Miguel Azeez (Ibiza)

Azeez played 73 minutes in central midfield for Ibiza, but his side fell to a 2-0 to Cartagena in La Liga 2.

Runar Alex Runarsson (Alanyaspor)

Runarsson made five saves as he helped his side to a 3-2 win over Antalyaspor, pulling them five points from safety in the Turkish top flight.

Mika Biereth (RKC Waalwijk)

Biereth played the final 20 minutes for Waalwijk in their 0-0 draw with Fortuna Sittard in the Eredivisie.

Harry Clarke (Stoke City)

Clarke came on for the final four minutes of his side’s 2-0 win over Preston North End as he continues his recovery from injury.

Omar Rekik (Sparta Rotterdam)

Rekik was a stoppage-time substitute for Sparta Rotterdam as they defeated NEC Nijmegen 2-0.

Ryan Alebiosu (Kilmarnock)

The young defender played 62 minutes in his side’s 0-0 draw with St Mirren.

Alex Kirk (Ayr United)

Kirk played 90 minutes in the heart of the Ayr United defence, but could not stop them from falling to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Dundee FC in the Scottish Championship.

Ovie Ejeheri (Chelmsford City)

Ejeheri kept a clean sheet for Chelmsford City as they saw off Aldershot Town 2-0 in the FA Cup fourth qualifying round, taking them just two more wins from the first round proper of the competition.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles (Southampton)

Maitland-Niles managed his longest outing thus far for Southampton, playing 71 minutes as the Saints grabbed a 1-1 draw with West Ham. The English midfielder made two clearances, two interceptions and winning two of his four duels.

Unused/not in squad

Brooke Norton-Cuffy (Rotherham United)

Norton-Cuffy was an unused substitute as his side edged out Huddersfield Town 2-1 in the Championship.

Flores was an unused substitute as his side fell to a 1-0 defeat to Albacete.

Tim Akinola (Chesterfield)

Akinola was not involved for Chesterfield.

Mazeed Ogungbo (Crawley Town)

Ogungbo was left out of the matchday squad as Crawley Town grabbed a 2-1 win over Newport County, just their second of the season.

Nikolaj Moller (FC Den Bosch)

Moller made a 16-minute cameo as his side eased to a comfortable 3-0 win over Yong AZ Alkmaar.

Salah-Eddine Oulad M’Hand (Hull City)
