It is the 2nd week in our new feature where we keep an eye on how the Liverpool loanee’s are getting on this season.
Danny Ings (Southampton)
After his deadline day move Ings made his debut for Southampton against his former club Burnley, he came on as a second half substitute as the Saints pushed for a winner, he looked sharp while on the pitch and his first goal can’t be too far away.
Hopefully that will come next week when Southampton face Everton at Goodison Park.
Ryan Kent (Rangers)
Kent is getting some solid game time with Rangers, he played twice last week for them and both times they were victorious, first against Maribor in the Europa League where Rangers ran out 3-1 winners and he also starred during their 2-0 win against St.Mirren in the Scottish Premier League.
He has yet to register a goal or an assist so that must be the next step for the winger.
Ovie Ejaria (Rangers)
Similar to his Liverpool counterpart Ejaria is also seeing plenty of game time with Rangers and controlled the midfield during the recent wins against Maribor & St.Mirren, while it is positive they are getting so much game time the only worry would be is this a level below what they should be playing?
Ben Woodburn (Sheffield United)
Still to make his first start however he has came off the bench in his last 3 outings for the Blades, last week he came on while trailing Middlesborough 3-0 and could not help Sheffield United get back into the game, He also got twenty minutes in a 2-1 victory over QPR, the next step for Woodburn would be to get himself into the starting line up.
Harry Wilson (Derby County)
The second week has not gone as smooth for the Welsh forward as he was very ineffective during the Rams 4-1 loss to Leeds United, Derby manager Frank Lampard was to give him the hook on the hour mark to end a miserable day all round.
Wilson is getting plenty of games at Derby and the next step for him must now be to start putting the ball into the net and showing the Derby fans why so many clubs wanted him.
Herbie Kane (Doncaster Rovers)
This was Kane’s professional debut and the midfielder took the opportunity with both hands as he bossed the midfield and help Doncaster to beat Wycombe Wanderers 3-0.
The Doncaster boss had this to say on Kane after the game.
“I thought he was outstanding,” said McCann.
“He covered every blade of grass, he was calm and composed, he showed lots of energy – exactly what we brought him to the football club for.
“He was aggressive as well and gets about people.
“For a home debut I thought he was top drawer.”
Taiwo Awoniyi (Gent)
The Nigerian forward is enjoying his 2nd spell in Belgian Super League and has stepped into the shoes of his international colleague Moses Simon who left for Spain this summer.
While he is yet to get off the mark he has been a constant goal threat for Gent, he won a penalty during on his debut and last week he hit the post during a 4-1 win over Waasland-Beveren, he also started in the Europa League over Polish outfit Jaggiellonia where Gent ran out 1-0 winners.
