For the most part, the last couple of years have been a familiar theme for Harry Clarke. The Arsenal loanee has played well for various clubs, winning over supporters without fail, but he’s also had a few frustrating injury setbacks.

The same has been true in the early stages of his loan to Stoke City so far.

After just three appearances for the side, Clarke was ruled out for almost two months with an injury. But he returned to action over the weekend, and he scored a key goal in his second game back on Wednesday.

Making his second substitute appearance of the week, Clarke came on against Burnley with his loan side 1-0 down and only 18 minutes to play.

With three minutes left, Clarke got into the area and found himself on the end of a ball in from Tariqe Fosu.

It was a decent chance, but it still took a powerful and accurate header to beat the goalkeeper, which he did. You can watch the goal here from 1:37, Clarke’s second goal on loan in five appearances – 224 minutes.

After securing his side a vital point from the bench, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Clarke returning to the starting lineup for Stoke in the coming weeks.
