Ben Twelves rounds up how the loaned members of the Liverpool squad performed for their temporary clubs in the last week, with a more productive set of fixtures this time around for the Reds loanees.
Liverpool’s £10million summer signing endured a frustrating match for Lille on Saturday evening, as his side played out a 1-1 draw with St Etienne in Ligue 1.
Origi played on the right of a front three and with the score level at one apiece in the second half, the Belgian had the chance to regain the lead for his team, but he missed a 71st minute penalty which was saved by Stephane Ruffier in the opposing net.
Despite missing the chance to win his side the game, the Belgium international still produced a decent performance for his side – creating a chance and registering four successful take-ons during the game.

Exciting prospect Ibe dropped to the bench for Derby in their impressive 5-2 League Cup win over Fulham on Tuesday night, but the Reds youngster did come on as a second half substitute with just 15 minutes remaining and the game already won.
The 18-year-old began on the bench for the second match running on Saturday, as his Derby side slumped to a 2-1 defeat away to Brentford. However, with the scores level at 1-1, manager Steve McClaren turned to the Reds youngster just after the hour mark to make the difference as he put Ibe on at the left side of a three man attack.
Ibe looked to make the impact McClaren searched for and he didn’t hesitate to get involved as he saw a low strike well saved after a mazy run into the Brentford box, before the home side nicked a late winner in a tight game.

Joao Carlos Teixeira
Portuguese playmaker Teixeira came on as a second half substitute in the 66th minute for Sami Hyypia’s Brighton on Wednesday night, in their 2-0 cup defeat against Tottenham at White Hart Lane.
Hyypia introduced the Liverpool loan star to proceedings with his side only a goal down and still in the game, but the 20-year-old couldn’t quite make the difference as his side eventually lost 2-0 to the Premier League team.

Teixeira came back into the starting XI in Brighton’s 3-2 defeat to Bournemouth in the Saturday night football on Sky Sports, and produced a Man of the Match performance as he completed a much needed 90 minutes for his loan club.
The Reds youngster, who picked up his first booking of the season – played on the right of a front three and claimed the assist for his side’s first goal – as his through ball sent striker Adrian Collunga clear to slot home and equalise for Hyppia’s men.
Joao Teixeira was brilliant. Played a great pass to Colunga for his goal and was always our most attacking threat. #BHAFC

Liverpool’s loaned defender was rested in midweek by West Brom boss Alan Irvine for their disappointing Capital One Cup defeat to Bournemouth on Tuesday night, as Wisdom spent the 90 minutes as unused substitute.
However, the 21-year-old was reintroduced to the starting XI on Saturday in West Brom’s 1-0 away win over Leicester City. The loaned man started once again at right back, playing the full match and defended strongly helping his side record their fourth clean sheet in the league this season.
After a frustrating lack of game time since joining on loan, Liverpool’s Spanish striker took full advantage of being handed a rare start as he scored a hat-trick for Sevilla in their 6-1 Copa Del Rey win over Sabadell on Wednesday night.

Aspas started the game – as Unai Emrey rotated his squad for the cup fixture – playing as the main striker and he completed all 90 minutes, grabbing a confidence boosting three goals – including a stunning volley – in the process.
Despite Wednesday’s impressive display, Aspas returned to the bench as Sevilla returned to league action against Atletic Bibao on Sunday morning and the striker on a season-long loan was an unused substitute.
Moroccan winger Assaidi was an unused substitute for Stoke on Wednesday night as they were knocked out of the League Cup by Southampton following a 3-2 home defeat, and the Reds loanee endured another 90 minutes sitting on the bench at the weekend in his sides’ 2-2 draw with West Ham.
Uruguayan defender, Coates, remains an absentee for Sunderland due to an on-going hip injury preventing the Reds loaned man making a return to match action.
No fresh injuries worries for Sunderland, but none of their absentees in line to return at Palace #safc
