In our first loan watch of the new season, we’re going to take you through how the Arsenal loanees are getting on as the competitive matches get underway.

Although there will almost certainly be further loan departures before the end of the transfer window, there are currently just four players on loan from Arsenal. We round up who has gone where and how life at their new club has started below:

1. Takuma Asano

2. Marc Bola

3. Emi Martinez

4. Stephy Mavididi

Now he’s back playing again, and started Preston’s League Cup match against Accrington, making him the first Arsenal loanee to play a competitive game. He played 53 minutes before being subbed off, and Preston went on to lose 3-2.

Stephy then wasn’t included in the squad for Preston’s first Championship match of the season against Leeds.
