It was a mixed bag for the Arsenal players whose loan clubs were in action on Friday night.
Here’s a roundup of how they all got on:
Bennacer returned to the Tours starting lineup under their temporary manager but could not help his side claim all three points at home to ESTAC Troyes as they drew 0-0.
Zelalem was a second half substitute for VVV Venlo as they won 4-0 at home to against Santi Cazorla’s nemesis, Achilles ’29.
The American replaced Clint Leemans after 56 minutes and the win moved his side eight points clear at the top of the Eerste Divisie.
Kelechi Nwakali started for MVV Maastricht as they were thumped, 4-0, at SC Cambur on Friday night.
Once again, Stefan O’Connor was not involved with the squad.
