We take a look at how the remaining loaned Reds performed for their temporary clubs throughout the week’s fixtures, with a pleasing amount of match action and production from the loanees.
Lazar Markovic continued his positive form, producing an influential second half display and grabbing an assist in Fenerbahce’s cup second-leg 6-1 victory over Giresunspor.
On at half time, the Serbian took no time to make his mark on proceedings, registering an excellent set-up for Robin Van Persie’s first of the night – driving inside from the right flank in his own half, before sliding a delightful pass with the outside of his boot to release the Dutchman who scored.
Markovic also had a hand in Van Persie’s second, steering a powerful header to release Gokhan Gonul who then squared for the striker to net Fener’s sixth and round off a good night for Markovic and Vitor Pereira’s side who take on Eskisehirspor on Monday night.
Elsewhere in Europe, Luis Alberto endured a mixed week of action for Deportivo La Coruna in two games played.
In the first, the creative midfielder couldn’t prevent his side exiting the Copa Del Rey to second division side Mirandes after being thrown on at half time to rescue the tie with his side trailing, despite showing some positive flashes.
Positively, Alberto made an instant impact on his return to the starting XI, capping off an influential performance with his fourth Depor goal in the 1-1 draw with Real Sociedad.
