Liverpool currently have nine players out on loan and in this new weekly feature we shall break down how they get on during that week.
Harry Wilson (Derby)
After a successful loan spell last season with Hull City and a decent start to pre-season with Liverpool much is expected of the Welsh forward this season.
Derby pipped a host of clubs to the loan signing of Wilson and he made his much anticipated debut this weekend playing in the right side of a front 3, he played full ninety minutes and had a couple of opportunities to score, overall a decent start to his loan.
Ryan Kent (Rangers)
One of two Liverpool players currently at Rangers who are now managed by ex-Red Steve Gerrard, Kent played the last 20 minutes in the Gers 1-1 draw with Aberdeen as the Scottish club pushed on for the winner, he has already place twice in the Europa League this season.
Ovie Ejaria (Rangers)
The second young Red who is currently on loan at Rangers, Ejaria has made a decent start to his career in Scotland having already started four times in the Europa League and along with Kent came off the bench in the recent 1-1 draw with Aberdeen.
Ben Woodburn (Sheffield United)
This is Woodburn’s first loan spell and much is expected of the Welsh forward, a host of clubs including Aston Villa & Stoke were after Woodburn’s services but it was the Blades who snapped him up.
Woodburn came off the bench for the last 20 minutes but was not able to help Sheffield United to a win as Yan Dhanda is who an ex teammate of Woodburn during their time at Liverpool u-23s came on to score the winner for Swansea.
Adam Bogdan (Hibernian)
Bogdan did not get off to the best of starts with Hibernian after he left in a soft goal during a Europa League outing, however since then he has settled in well on Easter Road and kept his first clean sheet of the season which helped Hibs to a 3-0 win against Motherwell.
Taiwo Awoniyi (Gent)
The Nigerian forward is off to an impressive start with Gent as he led the line during their 1-1 draw with Zulte-Waregem, winning a penalty in the process which was not converted by his team mate.
This is Awoniyi’s second loan spell in Belgium after a very successful one this season and he will hope to push on again this season in the hope of securing a place in Liverpool’s 2019-2020 season.
