Arsenal loan update: Keeper makes debut; Costa Rican nets AGAIN!

Johan Djourou

A brief look at the Arsenal players progress serving time at other clubs.

Joel Campbell was the pick out of the loan stars once again, this time for scoring 7 minutes after his introduction from the bench. 

Olympiakos are taking no prisoners recently and with the talent they have, it's not hard to see why. The Greek Super League game against Panthrakikos ended in yet another heavy win for the league favourites in a 4-1 win, thanks to goals from Kostas Manolas, Andreas Samaris, Joel Campbell and Javier Saviola.

The goal scored by Campbell itself could be construed as luck, but show a willingness and determination to get to the ball that only good, inform strikers do and it paid it's reward.

Argentinian goalkeeper Damian Martinez also had a weekend to remember as he took to the pitch for the very first time for Sheffield Wednesday, being favoured over former England international Chris Kirkland.

The game wasn't exactly a spectacle by any stretch of the imagination but was still called upon a number of occasions after some questionable Wednesday defending. Unfortunately, the keeper couldn't stop  Sheffield Wednesday slipping to yet another defeat.

The Bundesliga duo Johan Djourou and Francis Coquelin both got some game time at the weekend, although for Coquelin it wasn't as much as he would have hoped for.

Djourou can have no complaints, playing the full 90 minutes in an impressive 3-1 win over Hannover 96 at the Imtech Arena. Francis Coquelin only had 8 minutes in an important win for Freiburg, who earned their second win of the season over relegation rivals Eintracht Braunschweig.

Elsewhere, Wellington Silva and Hector Bellerin were both unused in their respective games, and Chuks Aneke only saw 8 minutes game time for Crewe in a 2-1 loss to Port Vale.
