We round up how the loaned members of the Liverpool squad performed for their temporary clubs throughout the week – with an even split of game time for the 10 loanees.

Divock Origi

Belgium striker Origi missed a penalty for Lille in their final Europa League group game on Thursday night – a 3-0 home defeat against Wolfsburg – and endured a testing 90 minutes in the clash.

With his side trailing 2-0 against the German side who were reduced to 10 men, Origi missed an important spot kick to drag his side back into the game, which was saved by goalkeeper Diego Benaglio in the Wolfsburg net.

After missing the penalty, Origi, who has been the subject of continued talk over a premature move to Anfield in January, was subsequently booed and jeered by the unforgiving and frustrated home crowd for the remainder of the fixture as they limped out of the Europa League, finishing winless at the bottom of the group.

Lille bounced back to Thursday night’s disappointment with a comfortable 3-0 win over Toulouse on Sunday which saw Origi begin on the right side of a three man attack.

The 19-year-old was again on the receiving end of more boos from the home fans, but Origi enjoyed a good afternoon – winning a penalty and grabbing an assist for Nolan Roux’s match sealing third goal of the night – ending ten matches without making a contribution through either a goal or assist for his side.

 

Andre Wisdom

Loaned defender Wisdom kept his place at right back in the West Brom back line once again on Saturday for their confidence-boosting 1-0 midlands derby win over Aston Villa at the Hawthorns, and he produced a strong performance for his loan club.

The Liverpool man completed another 90 minutes – helping his side claim a much valued clean sheet, their second in a row – and he carried an attacking threat alongside a solid defensive display which saw the Baggies stop the rot of four successive defeats having picked up four points to show from their last two games.

Joao Carlos Teixeira

Question marks had been raised over the future of Liverpool’s Portuguese midfielder on the south coast after he was left out of the Brighton squad two weeks ago, but Teixeira has played back-to-back 90 minutes since then – the last coming on Friday night against Millwall.

The Portugal under-21 international was by far the biggest attacking influence for Sami Hyypia’s struggling side despite his final pass eluding him at some key moments in the game, on what was a disappointing night that saw the pressure cranked up on the former Reds skipper as his team languish in the Championship relegation zone.

 

Jordon Ibe

Having started on the bench for Derby’s 2-0 defeat against fellow promotion hopefuls Middlesbrough in Saturday’s early kick-off, Steve McClaren introduced Ibe to proceedings at half-time with his side trailing 1-0.

The talented loan star, who has impressed greatly since joining The Rams, entered play on the left of a three man attack but was unable to make an impact on the game – despite almost scoring directly from a corner – as his side were reduced to 10 men in the second period and slumped to defeat.
