How did Everton’s young stars get on?

Vlasic will have irked some Evertonians after giving his opinion that Liverpool will win the Champions League this season, but it was another outstanding performance from the Croatian this week.

Elsewhere, there wasn’t much good news for Everton’s out-on-loan contingent, although Mo Besic put in a sterling performance for Middlesbrough.

Read on for what is effectively a repeat of last week’s loan recap.

The Youngsters

Henry Onyekuru

Things aren’t going great for Onyekuru right now. He’s dipped in and out of the Galatasaray side after a positive start, and now he’s picked up a hamstring injury on international duty which will keep him out for about three weeks.

Antonee Robinson

Robinson was rested by Wigan Athletic after some long haul flights while playing for the United States during the international break.

Callum Connolly

Connolly came on for the final three minutes to help Wigan see out there 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion.

Nikola Vlasic

Vlasic was the star of the show once more for CSKA, scoring the opening goal of their 2-0 away win over Anzhi Makhachkala. The Croatian youngster has now scored four goals in 10 appearances from midfield for the Russian side.

Joe Williams

Not one of Williams’ best performances for Bolton Wanderers and was brought off after 67 minutes with the Trotters 1-0 down, and his side going on to secure a late equalizer.

Matthew Pennington

Played the full 90 minutes at right-back again as struggling Ipswich Town fell to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Queens Park Rangers. The Tractor Boys are rooted to the bottom of the league.

The Deadwood

Ashley Williams

Picked up a yellow card but played the full game as Stoke City’s struggles continued with a 1-0 home defeat to Birmingham City.

Cuco Martina

Martina played the full 90 minutes once again in Stoke’s loss.

Luke Garbutt

Was an unused substitute for League One Oxford.

Shani Tarashaj

Still nowhere to be seen.

Kevin Mirallas

Played the final 20 minutes of Fiorentina’s 1-1 draw with Cagliari but was ineffective.

Mo Besic

A man of the match performance from Besic as he scored one and set up one in Boro’s 2-1 win at Sheffield Wednesday on Friday night. His Everton days are surely numbered but a return to the Premier League could be beckoning with the high-flying Teesiders.

Yannick Bolasie

Still yet to work his way into the starting XI, Bolasie again came off the bench for Villa in their 1-0 win over Swansea City.

Sandro Ramirez

Earned a start on Monday night, but was taken off after 68 minutes and replaced by long-term Everton target Willian Jose in Real Sociedad’s goalless draw at home to Girona.
