- Loan Watch: Week 7 - September 26, 2018
Another great week for Liverpool loanees including goals, assist and clean sheets for the goalkeepers who are currently on loan.
Loris Karius (Besiktas)
Last weeks loan watch player of the week had yet another good week in Turkey as he played a pivotal role in helping Besiktas to a 3-1 win over Sarpsborg in the Europa League.
He followed that up with another fine display in the Istanbul derby against Fenerbache which ended in a 1-1 draw.
After a slow start in Turkey, the former Mainz goalkeeper is beginning to show the form which got him the move to Liverpool in the first place with the Besiktas fans taking him to their hearts.
Marko Grujic (Hertha Berlin)
The Serbian started his third game in a row for the Bundesliga outfit who climbed to 2nd place after a victory over Borrusia Moenchengladbach. It came with a price however, as Grujic limped out during the 2nd half with ankle ligament damages which will keep him out for the next six weeks.
He will not return to Liverpool while he is injured and instead will stay in Berlin as he recovers.
Taiwo Awoniyi (Gent)
It has been a tough couple of weeks for the Nigerian international as he has struggled for form and playing time. This week was no different as was left on the bench for Gent’s match against Club Brugge.
He did get on with 20 minutes to go as Gent were trailing by two goals, however he was not able to make the impact he would have hoped for as Gent went on to concede two more goals as Brugge ran out 4-0 winners.
Sheyi Ojo (Reims)
The winger had his first start of the season this week against Dijon but was hooked after only an hour after an uneventful game. After making just cameo appearances previous to this, Ojo will hope to build on his first start when Reims take on PSG tonight.
It is early days yet for the winger who took to Instagram during the week to express that he will continue to work hard.
“A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes hard work, self belief and courage,” Ojo mused.
Allan Rodriquez (Eintracht Frankfurt)
The Brazilian moved to Germany in hope of getting a work permit however he has had to wait until week 7 to get his first appearance when he come on as a second half sub against Red Bull Leipzig.
Frankfurt have another game tonight against Borussia Moenchengladbach, it will be interesting to see if the midfielder can notch up another game.
Ryan Kent & Ovie Ejaria (Rangers)
Meanwhile, in Scotland the fine form of Ryan Kent has continued. He put in a gut-bursting performance in the Europa League as Steve Gerrard’s Rangers held Villareal to a two all draw and he continued that with another really good game against St.Johnstone as the Gers ran out 5-1 winners with Kent getting an assist and Ejaria playing thirty five minutes as he returned from injury.
Both will hope for more game time tonight as Rangers face Ayr at home in the league cup.
Adam Bogdan (Hibernian)
Elsewhere in Scotland, goalkeeper Adam Bogan had a good start to the week as he kept his second clean sheet of the season as Hibs ran out 3-0 winners against Dundee. He could not follow that up in the League Cup after crashing out to Aberdeen in a penalty shootout.
Harry Wilson (Derby County)
The Welshman returned from injury with a point to prove and his week could not have gone any better. He started off with his first goal for his loan club as Derby beat Brentford 3-1 and finished it with an absolute belter of a goal in the League Cup against Manchester United, celebrating with the five times sign.
Derby took United all the way to penalties and the Welshman did not disappoint as he dispatched his penalty with ease, helping the Championship club to a shock victory over United.
Elsewhere in the league, Herbie Kane got an assist for Doncaster and Corey Whelan played the full match for Crewe against Port Vale but Ben Woodburn had to make do with a sub outing against Birmingham.
