Sportupdatehub takes a look at Chelsea’s players who are out on loan over the last week.
Nathan Baxter – The goalkeeper put in a steady performance but could not prevent Birmingham from netting twice against Hull as the Tigers’ difficult start to the season continued. Ahead of the game saw his goal at the KCOM Stadium.
Lucas Bergstrom – completed 180 minutes as Peterborough won 4-1 in midweek before losing to Wycombe 3-1 at the weekend.
Jamie Cumming – The young goalkeeper was in net for consecutive defeats for MK Dons as they fell to Bristol Rovers and Plymouth Argyle. Between the fixtures, MK Dons boss Liam Manning provided a ringing endorsement of the young stopper’s abilities.
He said: “He’s terrific. It’s a challenging period for everybody, especially for Jamie, who was here last season and having the success he did.
“He’ll have a really good career, Jamie. He’ll play at a really high level. He’s matured in terms of his leadership in this tough situation. He comes out in a lot of credit for me.”
Gabriel Slonina – Reports suggest that Slonina has arrived at Cobham for a two-week training stint, with a decision to be made on where the goalkeeper is best served when he official heads to the Blues at the end of his loan with Chicago Fire in January.
Ethan Wady – Was on the bench for Woking as they qualified for the FA Cup with a victory over Southend United. The goalkeeper is yet to start for the Cardinals since the season started.
Malang Sarr – The French defender was involved in a bizarre own goal as Monaco fell 4-0 to Trabzonspor. The Chelsea loanee was helpless as he headed into position, and goalkeeper Alexander Nubel looked to fizz a pass to Caio Henrique. The ball smashed off Sarr’s thigh and headed into the net to open the scoring. Sarr did not feature in Monaco’s draw with Clermont Foot.
Ethan Ampadu – The Welshman played as a central defender in a back four as Spezia drew two-all Cremonese.
