Arsenal Loan Watch: Jenkinson Shows His Quality, Silva Bags Assist


Dec. 9 – Dec. 29

Wellington Silva – UD Almeria


Wellington Silva has played just over 90 minutes this month for UD Almeria in all competitions. Silva came off the bench in Almeria’s 4-1 loss to Réal Madrid in the 67th minute. The most notable thing the Brazilian did was provide a shot assist.


In the Copa Del Rey, Silva started the match but came off in the 66th minute. The winger unfortunately didn’t feature in UD Almeria’s win over Celta Vigo.

Austin Lipman – Boreham Wood


Austin Lipman has been used very sparingly these past 20 days. The Englishman only featured in two out of four games, coming on in the 78th minute against Eastbourne Borough and the 87th minute against Bath City. He didn’t score any goals.


Jon Toral – Brentford


Jon Toral has played mostly as a substitute lately. He’s come off the bench three out of four games, coming on in the 46th, 65th, and 65th, against Cardiff City, Ipswich Town, and Wolverhampton respectively. He was an unused substitute in Brentford’s 3-1 win over Blackburn Rovers.


Benik Afobe – MK Dons


Benik Afobe become a regular part of the MK Don set up. The U-21 England international started in MK Dons’ 1-1 draw against Preston North End and 1-0 win over Notts County but came off the bench and scored in the 7-0 spanking of Oldham Athletic and came on in the Dons’ 3-0 loss to Walsall.


Ryo Miyaichi – FC Twente


Ryo Miyaichi has had a hard time at FC Twente this year barely featuring at all. The Japanese international only came on in the 83rd minute in their 2-0 defeat to PSV Eindhoven and that was on the 14th of December. The speedy-winger has been an unused substitute in the games against De Graafschap and Willem II.


Carl Jenkinson – West Ham United

Carl Jenkinson has become a regular starter for West Ham since he was first given a chance. He’s performed well every game he’s played. In the games against Sunderland, Leicester, and Chelsea, the England international completed two out of five tackles, four interceptions, six clearances, two blocked shots, one blocked cross, committed no fouls, and made his first error leading to a shot.

Jenkinson is surely growing as a player and, in my opinion, should be part of Wenger’s plans next year.
