Loan watch: Five Arsenal loanees feature as Tafari Moore makes his debut

Emi Martinez started consecutive games for the first time this season, and Tafari Moore featured for his new loan club.

On Friday, Moore completed a loan move to Wycombe Wanderers. The 20-year-old was immediately thrown in to the first team the next day, starting against Colchester United.

Wycombe won the match 3-1, and the Arsenal youngster was very impressive. Their manager Gareth Ainsworth told Sunday’s Football League Paper: “We had a couple of goal of the season contenders and one almost-contender from Tafari.

“He’s an Arsenal right-back with pace. You look at their first-team right-backs and they’re very good attacking-wise. But I thought he did some real good defending.”

Meanwhile, Emi Martinez finally started consecutive games for Getafe, after five months at the club. The 25-year-old kept a clean sheet as his team won 1-0. Hopefully he’ll get a run in the starting eleven now.

Stephy Mavididi started for Charlton against Bury as well, as they won 1-0. He was substituted late on. Although he couldn’t get a goal this time, he came very close with another impressive run:

Marc Bola also started for Bristol Rovers in a 0-0 draw with Blackpool. Finally, Lucas Perez played 90 minutes of Deportivo’s 2-1 loss at home to Valencia.

Cohen Bramall and Carl Jenkinson continue to sit out Birmingham City’s matches. Takuma Asano also didn’t feature for Stuttgart as they beat Hertha Berlin 1-0. Joel Campbell is still recovering from injury, and Kelechi Nwakali could take part in VVV-Venlo’s friendly on Monday.
