Mavropanos and Nelson score and other Arsenal loan updates

Arsenal’s on-loan players are doing well at their respective clubs and the past week saw some of them put in impressive performances for their temporary employers.

In the latest update on the club’s website, Hector Bellerin played the entire 90 minutes as Real Betis beat Real Sociedad 4-0. 

Lucas Torreira also continued his fine run of form with another 90 minutes under his belt for Fiorentina. They beat Salernitana 4-0 to build a 3-game-winning streak.

Reiss Nelson was among the goals as Feyenoord beat Maccabi Haifa 2-1 in their last Europa Conference League game. He also came on as a late substitute in their next game against Groningen.

Dinos Mavropanos loves to score and netted his fifth of the season for Stuttgart in their 2-0 win against Wolfsburg.

William Saliba and Matteo Guendouzi played twice for Olympique Marseille in the past week against Lokomotiv Moscow and Strasbourg.

While Saliba played the entirety of both games, Guendouzi got 69 minutes and 65 minutes of action in both fixtures.

Miguel Azeez got an assist for Portsmouth against Morecambe, while Jordi Osei-Tutu made his first appearance for Nottingham Forest since his return from injury. They beat Swansea 4-1.

Nikolaj Moller scored for Viktoria Koln against SV Weiden, but played just 3 minutes of normal time in their next game against Eintracht Braunschweig.

Alex Runarsson, Harry Clarke and Matt Smith were also in action for their respective loan clubs in an enjoyable week for the club’s loanees.

Just Arsenal Opinion

It is great to see so many Arsenal loanees do well at their temporary homes.

This means the club should have better players added to its squad at the end of this season or it can offload some of them for good fees.

It would be interesting to see if Saliba will finally get a first-team chance and how much the Gunners can make from selling Torreira and Guendouzi.

    1. He is better than Elneny, and strengthens and adds depth to the midfield, though some would argue his quality.

      The small fee for his sale will no where near cover the cost of a replacement.

      So much for the “everyone gets a second chance” under Arteta. Can’t help but think a true captain like Adams or PV would have sorted the lad out some time ago.

      1. The armband as ment nothing at this club for years Durand ,give it to players so they sign contracts and to players who tell the crowd to Fck off .
        IMO it should always be given to a CB ,as they see everything in front of them .

      2. DURAND I believe that to even be capable of being sorted out needs a degree of humility and self introspection that this overgrown child does not possess.

        I think you vastly overestimate the powers to persuade someone to reform, of both those former great captains. They were great players and fine captains but not miracle workers.

        I see this player as a hopeless case and deeply harmful to a clubs dressing room harmony and I REJOICE THAT HE IS GONE AND IMO WILL NEVER RETURN, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTNCES.
        Anyway, it would not be a “second chance” but an umpteenth one and that will not happen.

      3. Maybe I’m mistaken Durand but I thought Guendouzi got at least three chances that we know about – the bust up at training in the Middle East, taunting Brighton players with how much more he made and “strangling” Maupay

        Putting aside the last one – which really isn’t much different then both Xhaka and Gabriel’s red cards last year, (so arguably not a red line for Arteta) that still leaves two chances we know about.

        1. the last two examples you’ve referenced were from the same game, so to count them as separate incidences is a tad disingenuous…btw the Dubai incident saw Guendo excommunicated, whereas Ceballos’s punishment was a new lucrative loan deal, even though he was functionally useless more often than not and had no real future at the club…not to mention, he had publicly declared on numerous occasions that he would rather be elsewhere…just saying

        2. The Maupay thing was defending a teammate, it was nice to see someone with some cojones in the team although I don’t condone that behaviour.

          If Vieira/Adams/Keowne had done it he would have been lauded as a strong player defending his team and celebrated so let’s not be hypocritical shall we?
