Loan report- Martinez saves penalty; Maitland-Niles impresses; Zelalem features



Emiliano Martinez produced a man-of-the-match display as Wolverhampton Wanderers drew 0-0 with Brighton & Hove Albion. The goalkeeper hasn’t been a regular starter this season, but he underlined his credentials as he kept out Tomer Hemed’s penalty before also saving the striker’s follow-up effort.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles made a significant impact during Ipswich Town’s 1-1 draw with Birmingham City. The winger won the penalty from which David Cotterill opened the scoring. However, Birmingham, for whom Jon Toral was an un-used substitute, later equalised.

Chuba Akpom was introduced in the 65th minute as Hull City drew 1-1 with Queens Park Rangers. Isaac Hayden, meanwhile, was an un-used substitute.

Carl Jenkinson played 85 minutes of West Ham United’s 2-1 win over Manchester City before being replaced after he suffered an injury.

Gedion Zelalem played the whole game as Rangers beat Dumbarton 2-1.

Wellington was involved from the offset and played 63 minutes as Bolton Wanderers were beaten 4-1 by Huddersfield Town.

Serge Gnabry was an un-used substitute as West Bromwich Albion beat Aston Villa 1-0.

Yaya Sanogo wasn’t involved as Ajax beat Excelsior 2-0.

Dan Crowley didn’t feature as Barnsley drew 1-1 with Blackpool.

Wojciech Szczesny missed Roma’s 2-2 draw with Sassuolo through injury.



  1. Gnabry is coming back from a serious injury layoff, it would be foolish to demand him starting in the premiership now. He is on the bench witch says he is in contention for a starting place and him fighting for a starting place is I think the best place for Gnabry now. If he would no make the squad than I would reconsider.
    My only problem is why are we loaning our players to a dinasour like Pulis ? why not to a upcoming inventive manager like Howe at Bournemouth??
