Every season a number of Arsenal players go out on loan to gain valuable first-team experience.
The 2010/11 campaign is no different and eight young Gunners have already linked up with their loan clubs.

Arsenal.com will be tracking their progress throughout the season. Our 'Arsenal's Loanees' page provides an overview of all the relevant players and below is the latest instalment of our regular 'Loan Watch' feature, which brings you brief reports from their latest fixtures.

Player Profile - Sanchez Watt

Leeds United

Sanchez Watt
Ipswich Town 1-2 Leeds United
Saturday, October 2
Sanchez Watt came on as a 74th-minute substitute and set up an equalising goal for Robert Snodgrass before Leeds eventually went on to lose 2-1 away to Ipswich. Jason Scotland put Ipswich ahead after 19 minutes when he rounded Shane Higgs and tapped into the empty net. Watt then replaced former Gunner Neil Kilkenny with 16 minutes remaining and helped get the Yorkshire side back on level terms three minutes later. Watt latched onto Davide Somma's through ball on left and squared for Snodgrass who was left with the easiest of finishes to bring Leeds level. Tommy Smith won the game with just seven minutes left when he found himself unmarked from a Carlos Edwards' cross and headed home. The defeat drops Leeds to tenth in the Championship with 14 points from ten games.
