Arsenal loan watch: Nelson scores on debut, Macey rock-bottom of division
Arsenal have found form under Unai Emery and have a number of players away from the club on loan. Here is how they faired in the latest round of action.
Matt Macey – Plymouth Argyle
Completed 90 minutes as Plymouth lost 1-0 to Blackpool in League One, which leaves the club rock-bottom of the table and as the only side in the division yet to secure a win. The 24-year-old has kept just two clean sheets this season.
Takuma Asano – Hannover 96
Calum Chambers – Fulham
Unused substitute as Fulham were swept aside by Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.
David Ospina – Napoli
Was dropped by Napoli for the 1-0 victory over Fiorentina and replaced by Oscar Karnezis after conceding five goals in the opening two games of the season.
Krystian Bielik – Charlton
Missed win over Bradford City through injury, will remain on the sidelines for a couple of week.
Kelechi Nwakali – Porto B
No league action for Porto B this week. Their next game is on the 22nd September against UD Oliveirense.
Reiss Nelson – Hoffenheim
Came off the bench to make his Bundesliga debut and the 18-year-old scored to level the scores against Fortuna Dusseldorf, although Hoffenheim went on to suffer a 2-1 loss after Dodi Lukebakio’s 88th-minute penalty.
