Loan Watch: Weekend round up – Keepers and Defenders

by Colm Murphy

After a weekend of action-packed football, we take a look at how it went for all of Manchester United’s players out on loan, starting with the keepers and defenders.

Ethan Laird

Played the full 90 and picked up an assist as Swansea City drew 3-3 with Luton Town.

WalesOnline player rating: “8 [highest in team] – Didn’t see enough of the ball in the first half, and, in fairness to the Manchester United loan man, he looked decent when he did get in possession. Terrorised Luton after the restart. Such a fine display.”

Whoscored.com rating: 7.79/10 (highest in team, team average 6.59)
Season totals: 5(2) appearances, 494 minutes, 1 goal, 1 assist

Axel Tuanzebe

Tuanzebe played the full 90 as Aston Villa came out 3:0 victors at home to Everton.

BirminghamLive player rating: “7 – Slotted in once more in the middle of Villa’s new-look back three and contained Salomon Rondon pretty well. Tuanzebe coasted in truth and found it a breeze out there. An easy night’s work.”
