It was a tough week for Everton’s out-on-loan contingent, although there were positives for Kieran Dowell and Jonjoe Kenny.
See how all 11 players got on over the weekend below.
Kieran Dowell – Derby County
Another full game under the belt for Kieran Dowell in what is lining up to be his best loan spell yet. Derby drew 2-2 away at Stoke, with Dowell setting up their opening goal following a lovely team move. The Derby Telegraph gave him a 7/10 for his performance – the joint highest for the Rams.
Joao Virginia – Reading
As predicted, Virginia’s tough start at Reading saw him end up on the bench this weekend, as the Royals got their first points of the season courtesy of an impressive 3-0 win over Cardiff. Hard to see a way back into the side for the Everton youngster now.
The Blues can, though, recall the Portuguese shot stopper in January if they want to find another home for him.
Nathan Broadhead – Burton Albion
Broadhead’s second start for Burton didn’t quite go as well as his first as they fell to a 1-0 defeat at home to Rotherham. He did play the full game, though, and Burton’s number nine hit the post early on (although it’s hard to say if it was a cross or a shot).
Jonjoe Kenny – Schalke
A decent Bundesliga debut for Jonjoe Kenny as Schalke earned a point in a goalless draw away to Borussia Mönchengladbach. Kenny played the full game at right-back and was very involved in play and had the most touches of the ball (70) for his team, although his 64.3% passing accuracy needs work – especially his long balls (10) of which just one was accurate. Nevertheless, a positive start in Deutschland for Kenny.
Josh Bowler – Hull City
Was left on the bench once again for Hull’s 1-1 draw with Brentford. Hopefully he gets more opportunities soon.
Korede Adedoyin – Hamilton Academical
Still yet to make a senior appearance for Hamilton.
Luke Garbutt – Ipswich Town
After two goals in two games for Ipswich, Garbutt unfortunately picked up a knee injury late in the first half against Sunderland last week and is expected to be out of action for a month.
Matthew Pennington – Hull City
Didn’t make the Hull squad for the visit of Brentford.
Mo Besic – Sheffield United
Again had to watch from the bench as Sheffield United earned their first win of the season by beating Crystal Palace 1-0.
Shani Tarashaj - Emmen
Another unused substitute as Emmen beat Heerenveen 2-0.
Sandro Ramirez – Real Valladolid
Started Real Valladolid’s opening game of the La Liga season and had a massive chance in the eighth minute as he rounded former Blue’s goalkeeper, Joel Robles, only to be brought down on the edge of the box. Robles was sent off and Ramirez had to go off injured. Not ideal for either. Valladolid went on to beat 10-man Betis 2-1.
