It was a largely disappointing week for Everton’s out-on-loan players, but there were positive moments for the likes of Nikola Vlasic and Luke Garbutt.

See how they all got on below.

The Youngsters

Henry Onyekuru - Galatasaray

Two matches against Yeni Malataspor for Onyekuru this week, with the Nigerian international being replaced on 83 minutes in the first leg of their cup tie, before his through ball caused enough commotion to earn Gala a penalty and give them the first of their goals in a 3-0 league win. He was again subbed off on 83 minutes.

Nikola Vlasic – CSKA Moscow

Played a key part in CSKA’s 2-0 win over Spartak in the Moscow derby. He grabbed an assist for the first goal following a scramble in the box, and then a wonderful long ball was key in the creation of their second goal.

Antonee Robinson – Wigan Athletic

Helped Wigan to a vital point as the Latics got a last-gasp equaliser in a 2-2 draw with Bristol City. Wigan are two points clear of Rotherham in the drop zone, although Millwall and Reading are also between them.

Beni Baningime – Wigan Athletic

Still not getting any kind of action for Wigan. His Everton career seems to be in danger of a Brendan Galloway-esque collapse.

Callum Connolly – Bolton Wanderers

Hopeless Ipswich were the visitors to Bolton at the weekend, with three points an absolute necessity if the Trotters were to have any hopes of retaining their Championship status. Unfortunately, Ipswich went on to win 2-1, leaving Bolton eight points adrift of safety with just six games to go.

Connolly once again started in the middle of the park alongside fellow Everton loanster, Joe Williams.

Joe Williams – Bolton Wanderers

Has been one of Wanderers best players this season, but the club are in dire straits and look set to be relegated to their third tier.

Matthew Pennington – Ipswich Town

Missed Ipswich’s win over Bolton having had his season cut short by an ankle injury.

Keiran Dowell – Sheffield United

Started for Sheffield United but was subbed on 63 minutes of their 1-0 win over Preston as they moved back up to second. It’s been a so-so spell for Dowell in Yorkshire so far.

Mason Holgate – West Bromwich Albion

Has absolutely made the right-back spot his own for the in-form Baggies, but his side fell to a disappointing 2-0 defeat at Millwall which effectively ends any late push for an automatic promotion spot. Nailed on for the play-offs though.

Antony Evans – Blackpool

Dropped back to the bench and didn’t get any minutes in their 2-2 draw with Luton.

Shayne Lavery - Falkirk

Also didn’t get any minutes as he watched Falkirk’s 2-1 defeat to Alloa from the bench.

Joe Hilton – Marine

Was again between the sticks for Marine’s 2-1 defeat to Whitby Town. The 19-year-old has impressed during this spell and he’ll be hoping it will be enough to earn a new Everton deal in the summer.

The Deadwood

Ashley WilliamsStoke City

Emerged from the bench to help Stoke see out their 1-0 win over Blackburn.

Cuco Martina - Feyenoord

Played again as Feyenoord beat Venlo 3-0.

Luke Garbutt – Oxford United

Great day for Garbutt as he grabbed a goal and an assist as Oxford beat Walsall. Will be interesting to see where he ends up this summer, with over a year still left on a contract believed to be worth around £27,500 per week.

Shani Tarashaj - Grasshopper

Disappeared again.

Kevin Mirallas - Fiorentina

Appeared for the final 22 minutes of Fiorentina’s 2-2 draw with Roma in midweek and then lead the line in their 1-0 defeat to Frosinone.

Mo Besic - Middlesbrough

The signing of veteran John Obi-Mikel has seen Mo Besic lose his place in the Boro line-up, but the Bosnian made a seven-minute cameo in their 1-0 to defeat to Bristol, but then didn’t get any minutes as his out-of-form side lost to Swansea.

Yannick Bolasie - Anderlecht

Two losses in a week for Anderlecht, with Bolasie grabbing an assist in their 3-2 defeat to club Brugge.

Sandro Ramirez – Real Sociedad

Two games, two defeats and still no goals for Sandro Ramirez. Still gets a lot of minutes for Sociedad though, coming off the bench for a 28-minute appearance against Real Betis and starting their 3-1 defeat to Celta Vigo.

He’s approaching his two-year anniversary since he last scored a league goal.

Oumar Niasse – Cardiff City

Ran a lot but couldn’t help Cardiff find the net in their 2-0 defeat to Man City. Also yet to score for the Bluebirds.
