It was a quieter week than usual on the loan front, with just one goal to take us to 99 overall for the season, but there’s still a lot to play for in the final weeks of the season. Headliners The goal was scored by Alvaro Morata during Atlético Madrid’s midweek win over Valencia. It was his sixth for his new club, more than he scored in his time at…

The Easter weekend is often a defining time in the season, with the finish line in sight for many teams, and the spread of fixture scheduling bringing unfamiliar challenges to those with plenty to play for. Plenty of Chelsea players out on loan saw their fortunes affected as the pressure rises, and nowhere is it ever more the case than in the Championship. Headliners Tammy Abraham’s Aston Villa are surging…

On a weekend dominated by Championship performers, it was Mason Mount who took home the most plaudits, and that took some doing as Chelsea’s best and brightest youngsters pressed their claims for greater consideration at Stamford Bridge next season. Headliners It wasn’t the best start to the week for Derby County after they suffered defeat away to Blackburn on Tuesday, and put in a poor performance to go along with…

It’s Reece James’ world, we’re all just living in it. He wasn’t the only Chelsea loanee to score this week, but he did steal all the weekend headlines, so it’s only right to start with him. Headliners Having won almost all of Wigan’s player of the month awards, earned a Championship Team of the Season spot, and been almost unplayable at right-back and in midfield, it’s been quite a season…

While many of Chelsea’s players continue to disappoint, several of those out on loan keep on doing things that lend volume to their cause of hopefully one day featuring in the Blues’ first team, again in some cases. With five different players scoring since the end of the international break, there are no shortage of contenders. Headliners Our first two goalscorers come from the Championship, but in both cases, the…

There are three more goals to bring you in the latest issue of the Loan Report; one from a player very much in people’s attentions, one who might be, and a third who is not so much. Headliners The latter came from Danilo Pantic, a Serbian forward who hasn’t quite made the progress Chelsea would have hoped him to in the four years since adding him to the Loan Army….

Following last week’s goal glut, there’s just one to mention in this week’s Loan Report, but it comes from the one player you can be absolutely assured of being in Chelsea blue next season. Headliners For the time being, however, Christian Pulisic remains a Dortmund player. Having spent the last fortnight on the treatment table with a hamstring problem, he was back on the bench for Saturday’s seemingly routine home…

A pair of forwards with aspirations of earning a Chelsea future scored this week, as did a striker and a midfielder who may both already have one foot out of the door, and one other player who is almost certainly not coming back. It’s time for the Loan Report. Headliners Michy Batshuayi has generally scored goals wherever he’s been. That trend has continued at Crystal Palace, where he now has…

So, to the Loan Army. Batshuayi, Hazard and Alvaro Morata all scored this weekend, which is probably something we’ve never said about Chelsea before, and might not in future either. As we still try to work out what happens after Wembley for the first team, let’s have a bit of light relief and catch up on the last seven days. Headliners Morata thought he’d scored earlier in midweek against Juventus…

A quieter week on the loan front saw a rare seven days without a goal being scored. There was still plenty to catch up on, however, so away we go. England Premier League Michy Batshuayi’s first start for Crystal Palace came in their FA Cup Fifth Round win at Doncaster. The Belgian played 75 minutes and it was a useful chance for him to get meaningful minutes before the resumption…
