Liverpool loan watch: Wilson, Ejaria and Kent start, youngster thrives on debut

The Merseyside clubs loanees enjoyed a terrific week away from Anfield.

Liverpool’s first team thrived in their opening Premier League fixture of the 2018/19 season, thrashing West Ham 4-0 in a one-sided demolition job at Anfield.

The Reds loanees also enjoyed game time away from Jurgen Klopp’s first team, here is how they got on this weekend.

Herbie Kane – Doncaster Rovers

The academy midfielder made his professional debut this past weekend in League One and caught the eye in a 3-0 win over Wycombe Wanderers.

Kane was a stand out performer during the game and played with a maturity and composure far beyond his years.

The 19-year-old is set to stay with Rovers until January.

Harry Wilson – Derby County

It was another quiet afternoon for Wilson, who despite gaining his second consecutive start for Frank Lampard’s side, saw his team thrashed 4-1 by Leeds United.

Wilson still seems to be finding his feet at the club and will no doubt be given a chance to do so by gaining a run of games under his belt.


Ben Woodburn – Sheffield United

Woodburn is still waiting for his first start with the Sheffield club. However, the 19-year-old made two appearances from the subs bench during the week.

It’s likely Woodburn will start to see more action as the season gets into its full swing, with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp eager for the youngster to learn his trade by getting sufficient game time.

Ryan Kent and Ovie Ejaria – Rangers

The duo enjoyed a terrific week in Scotland under former Liverpool great Steven Gerrard, winning the first leg of their Europa League tie against Maribor 3-1, followed by an impressive 2-0 win over St Mirren in the league on Sunday.

Taiwo Awoniyi – Gent

Awoniyi had the most impressive debut from the youngsters away from Anfield, helping his side to a secure a 1-0 away win at over Polish side Jaggiellonia in the Europa League.

The 20-year-old followed up his Europa League heroics by leading the line for Gent in their last league fixture, which saw his side win 4-1 over Waasland-Beveren.

Danny Ings – Southampton

Ings entered the action against Burnley early on in the second half and showed glimpses of what he may be able to achieve at his boyhood club this season.

Ings gave Southampton a new lease of life and brought with him an instant threat to the opposition’s goal.
