While the 5-0 loss to Manchester City over the course of the weekend may have been a miserable way to start the campaign, perhaps a look into how some of the emerging talent on West Ham United’s books can help ease the pain somewhat. With that in mind, in the next instalment of our Loan Watch feature, let’s see how some of these Hammers got on elsewhere.
Josh Cullen – Charlton Athletic
Josh Cullen played the full 90 minutes on his Charlton Athletic return, as the Addicks beat Stoke City 3-1 to maintain their perfect record in the Championship this season.
The 23-year-old was an integral player for the Addicks, as he made a goal-saving tackle, before driving in a cross that led to Chuks Aneke’s goal, as well as taking the corner which was flicked towards Conor Gallagher to score the last goal of the game, as shown in the video on Stoke City‘s YouTube channel.
Altogether, he made two successful tackles, one clearance and one interception while completing 86% of his passes, as per WhoScored.
Sead Haksabanovic – Norrkoping
Sead Haksabanovic got an assist as Norrkoping beat Elfsborg 2-0 to draw level on points with sixth-placed IFK Gothenburg in the Swedish Allsvenskan.
It was the Montenegro international who whipped in the ball that Rasmus Lauritsen headed in to make the score 2-0, as shown in a fan’s YouTube video.
Haksabanovic and his teammates will travel to Isreal to play Hapoel Beer-Sheva in the Europa League third qualifying round second leg on Thursday, having drawn 1-1 in the first leg.
Jordan Hugill – Queens Park Rangers
Jordan Hugill played the full 90 minutes for Queens Park Rangers as they drew 1-1 with Huddersfield Town.
The former Preston North End striker’s main contributions came in the air, as he won four aerial duels throughout the game, as per WhoScored.
Hugill took three shots during the game, which were all off target but he did manage to make three key passes and one tackle.
