It was a very bleak week indeed for Everton’s 11 out-on-loan players. Just three players managed to start a game and only one other managed to get off the bench. Kieran Dowell also came in for criticism, while some clumsiness from Jonjoe Kenny saw him give away a penalty.
Read the full dire report below.
Kieran Dowell – Derby County
Continues to hold down his place as Derby’s attacking midfielder, having played the full game as the Rams were beaten 2-1 at home to Bristol City in midweek, before doing so again in their 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion.
Dowell did come in for some criticism from sections of the Derby faithful following their disappointing loss to Bristol, with several people commenting that he is too passive, while the Derby Telegraph gave him a 4/10 for his performance saying that he “could not find the quality in the final third”, while he improved somewhat in the West Brom game with the newspaper summarising that he was “in and out of the game, got into some good positions without the final product.”
It’s great that Dowell is getting regular football at the moment, but he really needs to step it up a level if he wants a future in a Blue shirt.
Joao Virginia – Reading
Reading’s resurgence continues, but Virginia now seems set to play-back up to three-time Brazil international Rafael Cabral after some tough losses earlier in the season.
Nathan Broadhead – Burton Albion
Picked up a yellow card and was replaced on 65 minutes of Burton’s 4-2 win at Oxford in midweek, but he missed their goalless draw with Shrewsbury at the weekend after picking up a knock in training.
Jonjoe Kenny – Schalke
Tough day for Kenny as he gave away a penalty following a clumsy challenge on Kingsley Coman in Schalke’s 3-0 home to defeat to Bayern Munich. Despite this, Kenny performed admirably for the rest of the game and looked solid.
Unsurprisingly, Kenny reacted admirably to his disappointment, as you can see in the interview below.

Josh Bowler – Hull City
Two home defeats for Hull this week and two late cameos from the bench for Bowler, who was unable to rescue any points for the Tigers. Not yet started a league game for Hull, but may get another League Cup run out when they face Preston on Tuesday.
Korede Adedoyin – Hamilton Academical
Still yet to make a senior appearance for Hamilton.
Luke Garbutt – Ipswich Town
Out for the next month or so with a knee injury.
Matthew Pennington – Hull City
Yet to make a league appearance for Hull and wasn’t named in the squad for a third successive game. No word on whether he’s injured or just not being chosen.
Mo Besic – Sheffield United
Another chill out on the bench for Besic at Sheffield United as they lost 2-1 to Leicester City. Will be hoping to make his debut as they face Blackburn in the League Cup on Tuesday.
Shani Tarashaj - Emmen
After some appearances on the subs’ bench for Emmen, Tarashaj was missing once again for their 2-1 lost at Willem II.
Sandro Ramirez – Real Valladolid
Missed Valladolid’s impressive 1-1 draw with Real Madrid after being injured by Joel Robles last week.
