This is not a drill.
Sandro Ramirez scored this week. A real goal. A really great goal.
And it was a positive week for a few other young Blues too.
See how Everton’s out-on-loan contingent got on below.
Kieran Dowell – Derby County
Kept the bench warm as Derby beat struggling Middlesbrough 2-0.
Joao Virginia – Reading
Not even in the squad again for Reading. Expect a January recall back to Everton.
Nathan Broadhead – Burton Albion
After playing the full 90 in Burton’s 3-1 defeat against Leicester City in the League Cup during midweek, Broadhead started on the bench of their 2-2 draw away at Doncaster, but came on after just 41 minutes of action.
Jonjoe Kenny – Schalke 04
Played the full game for Schalke once again, with his side now up to sixth after beating Augsburg away 3-2.
Josh Bowler – Hull City
After waiting patiently to make his first league start for Hull, Bowler has now started back to back games (both wins) and grabbed his chance with both hands as he pounced on a rebound from his own header after nine minutes to fire Hull in front at Fulham. He was replaced in a tactical move after 54 minutes in their eye-catching 3-0 win at Craven Cottage.
Korede Adedoyin – Hamilton Academical
Still yet to make a senior appearance for Hamilton.
Fraser Hornby – KV Kortrijk
Continues to lead the line for Kortrijk, but was replaced on the hour mark as his side fell to a 3-0 defeat to Club Brugge.
Callum Connolly – Lincoln City
The incredibly versatile youngster played at centre-half for Lincoln once again as they drew 1-1 at AFC Wimbledon.
Luke Garbutt – Ipswich Town
No game for Ipswich this week.
Matthew Pennington – Hull City
Watched Hull’s win from the bench again.
Mo Besic – Sheffield United
Again a spectator on the Sheffield United bench.
Shani Tarashaj - Emmen
Missing as usual.
Sandro Ramirez – Real Valladolid
He scored! It’s not April 1st! His first league goal in well over two years!
Sandro came off the bench and scored the third and final goal in their 3-0 win over Mallorca. And what a hit it was too!
Yannick Bolasie – Sporting Lisbon
Started on the right win for Sporting but was replaced after 79 minutes of their 1-0 defeat to Tondela.
