In our weekly feature we will look at all the Liverpool players who are currently on loan both at home and abroad and report on how they got on at their new clubs.
Kamil Grabara – Huddersfield Town
The Terriers have had a disappointing start to their season after losing to Derby County last week they could only follow that up with a draw against QPR, Huddersfield had taken an early lead but soon sat back and let QPR pepper their goal with Grabara pulling off some smart saves.
My word we’re in for a long season. This is dire. How good is Kamil Grabara though? Our best player by a country mile. #htafc— Coach PiNG (@LewisPingSmith) August 10, 2019
Ben Woodburn – Oxford United
The Welsh man is off to a strong start with Oxford, he picked up an assist last week and was always a danger against Peterborough however he was guilty of a glaring miss in front of goal he finished the week with a 20 minute appearance coming off the bench against the same opponents to help Oxford into the next round of the League Cup.
Rhys Williams – Kidderminister Harriers
The loanee player of the week last week had yet another strong week, not only did he help Harriers keep a clean sheet but he also got his first goal in professional football when he rose high to head in a corner, he had a tougher time last night against Gloucester City where he was guilty of giving the ball away too easy which led to a goal from the opposition.
Ovie Ejaria – Reading
Ejaria made his second debut for Reading last night in a league cup game against Wycombe Wanderers and was bright throughout, he did fade near the end which considering his lack of game time over pre-season is not a surprise.
Sheyi Ojo – Rangers
After a sticky start last week Ojo had a much more impressive week this week, it started with getting some game time in Europe after coming on as a second half substitute and ended with him grabbing two assist and his first league goal in a 6-0 route versus Hibernian.
Liam Millar – Kilmarnock
Another player make his second debut for a club, this time it is Canadian forward Liam Millar who has returned to Kilmarnock on loan and started against Hamilton, bright throughout the game and looked to be Killie’s most dangerous player but had to come off after 75 minutes with a knock which probably came from a tackle by Brian Easton who was red carded 20 minutes earlier after taking out Millar.
Nathaniel Phillips – Stuttgart
I think the Stuttgarter said it best when they ran with the following headline after Phillip’s debut for the club.
He saw came and conquered.
VfB new signing Nathaniel Phillips made an excellent performance in his first competitive match in the cup match at Hansa Rostock
It may have only been against Hansa Rostock who are a league below Stuttgart but all the same this was a very impressive start by Phillips to earn praise from press and management a like.
“He already internalized much of what we showed him.
He is brave and robust.
I was very impressed by his performance, “says coach Tim Walter.
Marko Grujic – Hertha Berlin
The Croatian also started his German campaign in a cup game against Eichstatt which Berlin ran out easy 5-1 winners, he picked up an assist and had one goal disallowed but in truth Grujic or Berlin never had to get out of third gear.
