Two more of Arsenal’s players out on-loan across Europe featured during Sunday’s round of fixtures.


Dan Crowley started, played the full match and netted a late consolation for Go Ahead Eagles during their 3-1 defeat against Vitesse Arnhem. It was his best performance for the Eredivisie side since joining on a loan deal last month, with a WhoScored rating of 8.08 justified by his five completed dribbles and two key passes during the 90 minutes.

Plus, of course, this goal:


Takuma Asano started and completed 70 minutes during VfB Stutgart’s 2-0 win over Kaiserslautern.
