Dejan Iliev and Eddie Nketiah featured for SKF Sered and Leeds United on Saturday, but they wouldn’t have been too pleased with how their matches turned out.
Eddie Nketiah was once again forced to watch from the bench for much of Leeds match against Swansea City on Saturday. The striker is yet to start a game in the Championship, though he has started twice in the League Cup.
Nketiah did get his chance in the second half, coming on for the final 29 minutes, but he couldn’t get a goal on this occasion as Leeds lost 1-0.
Dejan Iliev continued his own run of starts with another against Pohronie, but it wasn’t a good day for the goalkeeper. He conceded three times in a 3-3 draw, only making one save.
Iliev is still yet to keep a clean sheet for Sered, though the poor defending in front of him has played a big part in that, with plenty of penalties given against the team already.
Arsenal haven’t had much luck with their loanees so far, with Ben Sheaf, William Saliba and Daniel Ballard all missing their loan clubs’ last games with injury. Saliba and Ballard are set for extended absences.
That leaves Mohamed Elneny and Jordi Osei-Tutu. Elneny has only just moved on loan, and he watched temporary club Besiktas draw with Rizespor on Saturday night.
Osei-Tutu has the chance to feature against Stuttgart on Sunday at 19:30 BST, after scoring in his last appearance.
