Loan Round Up Week 4

It’s been a minute, Reds! Let’s catch up with the boys plying their trade at other clubs. We’ve got performance all over the place. Some good, some not and major injury news.

Match ball winner: 

Allan Rodrigues de Souza

CM/CAM (22 yrs) 

Brazil 1. Serie A. (Fluminense 15/20)

Sunday – Botofogo 0- 1 Fluminense

68 mins

The more I follow this loan move, the more frustrated I get that we may never see him play at Liverpool (due to the visa issues). He continues to absolutely dominate the Brazilian top flight. Again a sterling display with the most completed passes and the highest accuracy of any outfield player (61 @ 93%). Flawless.

Benjamin Woodburn

CAM (19 yrs)

England 3. League 1 – Oxford (9/23)

Oxford United 2 – Accrington Stanley 2

14 mins

Subbed due to injury

Woodburn is expected to miss at least 12 weeks as he recovers from a broken foot suffered early on. It was an ugly challenge and is bitterly disappointed given the youngsters current run of form. “It’s such bad luck for Ben because he has been showing everyone what a good player his is, and now he’ll be out for 12 weeks or so “confirmed Robinson via the Yellows official site. The Echo is reporting that Liverpool official were furious at referee Martin Coy’s decision to dole out nothing but a free kick.

Marko Grujic 

CM (23 yrs)

Germany 1. Bundesliga – Hertha Berlin (10/18)

Friday – Hertha Berlin 3 – 1 Fortuna Dusseldorf (League)

90 mins 

Grujic & Hertha continued their ascendency up the table. Deployed as the left side pairing, holding mid – Grujic completed the most dribbles of the match along with completing an impressive 55 of 61 passes (%90).

Lloris Karius

GK (26 yrs)

Turkey 1. Super Lig – Besiktas

Thursday – Besiktas 0 – 1 Wolves (Europa League)

90 mins (1 goals conceded)

Sunday – Besiktas 2 – 0 Alanyaspor (League)

Never gets any easier for Lloris. Turned in a pretty outstanding match mid-week until his defense left him out to dry with the last kick of the match. But HEY! Clean sheets in stuff! A rare clean sheet in the league should help pep him up. Some chatter in the journos about him verbalizing a willingness to return to Liverpool and compete – but with the emergence of Adrian it appears that, that ship has sailed. We shall see…

Harry Wilson 

ST (22 yrs)

England 1. Premiership – Bournmouth (10/20)

Saturday – Arsenal 1 – 0 Bournmouth

79 mins

Harry Wilson was deployed on the right side of a 4-4-2 and was subbed off with roughly 10 to go. He finished the match as the most accurate passer with 18 completed at a 90% success clip. 

Sheyi Ojo

RM/RW (22 yrs)

Scotland 1. Rangers (1/12)

Thursday – Young Boys 2 – 1 Rangers (Europa League)

90 mins

Sunday – Ranger 5 – Hamilton Academical (League)

74 mins

After being in top form the past two weeks, Ojo returned back to earth in the Europa League. Playing on the right side of a 4 man midfield (4-1-4-1) he was virtually a non factor having the least amount of touches of any outfield player within the 90. Less than ideal. He played much better during the weekends schlacking of Hamilton when he was dispatched further forward in a more familiar 4-2-3-1.

Ovie Ejaria

CM (21 yrs)

England 2. Championship – Reading (17/24)

Saturday – Bristol City 1 – 0 Reading (22/24)

90 mins

Ejaria continues to be one of the lone bright spots on a side slipping down the table. He had the most completed dribbles of any outfield player but was unable to provide the breakthrough Reading needed.

Kamil Grabara

GK (20 yrs)

England 2. Championship – Huddersfield Town (24/24)

Saturday – Huddersfield 3 – 0 Hull City

90 mins 

Clean sweep for the clean sheets! That 2 for 2 – for Liverpool keepers on loan with shit defenses. And with that Huddersfield has crawled out of the drop zone (for now).

Liam Millar

ST (19 yrs)

Scotland 1. Premiership – Kilmarnock (7/12)

Saturday – Hearts 1 – 0 Kilmarnock

90 mins

Locked into the starting XI – played a solid but uneventful 90 in the win on the left side of a 4-1-4-1 midfield.

Nathaniel Phillips

CB (22 yrs)

Germany 2. Bundesliga – VfB Stuttgart

Saturday – VfB Stuttgart 1 – 2 Wehen

71 minutes

After being locked out of the starting XI the last few weeks, Phillips will be massively disappointed to have conceded twice in the loss to the bottom side of the division. 


Taiwo Awoniyi

ST (22 yrs)

Germany 1. Bundesliga – Mainz 05 (16/18)

Saturday – Paderborn 1 – 2 Mainz 05

***Unused substitute

– Paul Bickler
