Loan watch: Smith Rowe stars in win

Six of our loan players were in action for their loan clubs over the weekend.

Scroll down to find out how they got on.

Emile Smith Rowe’s impressive start with Huddersfield Town continued on Saturday, as he played the entirety of their 2-0 win over QPR.

Elias Kachunga opened the scoring with a header from close range, before Steve Mounie doubled their advantage from the spot in the second half.

Smith Rowe created two chances on the day, and of those who started the match, he had the highest pass completion rate (87.5 per cent).

Henrikh Mkhitaryan made his return from injury for Roma on Friday night, playing the entirety of their 3-2 home loss to Bologna.

The 29-year-old started in the No 10 position and scored their second of the night, but it was nothing more than a consolation goal, following Riccardo Orsolini’s opener and a brace from Musa Barrow.

Konstantinos Mavropanos delivered another stellar defensive performance on Saturday, guiding Nurnberg to a hard-fought 1-0 win over Vfl Osnabruck.

The hosts dominated the game and eventually broke the deadlock on the hour-mark through Hanno Behrens, pushing them up to 13th in the 2. Bundesliga table.

Mohamed Elneny starred in midfield as Besiktas cruised to a 3-0 win over Gaziantep on Saturday.

Burak Yilmaz, Kevin-Prince Boateng and Jermain Lens were the names on the scoresheet, but Elneny provided the base for such an attacking performance, making two tackles, two clearances and one interception.

William Saliba endured a frustrating afternoon in Ligue 1 on Sunday, as Saint-Etienne were beaten 1-0 by Montpellier.

The hosts made the perfect start when they took the lead through Andy Delort, but they were dealt a blow on the stroke of half-time, with Junior Sambia being shown a straight red card.

Saint-Etienne pushed on in search of an equaliser, but despite having a one-man advantage for the entirety of the second half, were unable to find a way past the home side.

Dejan Iliev was on the receiving end of a 3-0 defeat on Saturday as Jagiellonia were outclassed by Wisla Krakow on the road.

Alon Turgeman opened the scoring in the 28th minute, before Kamil Wotjowski and Aleksander Buksa found the back of the net in the second half.


Half a million single-use cups saved from landfill

At today's match against Everton, we will celebrate saving half a million single-use plastic cups from going to landfill – which stacked up would equal the same height as 39,801 Per Mertesackers!

In partnership with local company Camden Town Brewery, we became the first Premier League club to introduce a reusable cup scheme last season, which now saves approximately 20,000 cups per game.
The scheme has received great backing from supporters, who have utilised the purpose-built collection points around Emirates Stadium to ensure each cup reaches its maximum life of 200 uses.
"It's fantastic that Arsenal's reusable cup scheme has already prevented hundreds of thousands of disposable plastic cups being landfilled or incinerated," commented Friends of the Earth plastics campaigner, Tony Bosworth.
"Plastic pollution blights our planet and threatens our wildlife, so it's great to see Arsenal showing leadership on this crucial issue. We hope more clubs will give single-use plastic the boot."
"We are delighted to have saved half a million cups with Camden Town Brewery," added our deputy stadium manager, Michael Lloyd.
"Alongside the removal of plastic straws and stirrers at Emirates Stadium, this milestone exemplifies how small operational changes can have a huge environmental impact over a sustained period.
"The reaction from our fans towards this scheme has been overwhelmingly positive and their support has played a huge part in helping us to reach this milestone."
"Right from the start of our partnership with Arsenal, we set out to not only bring the best beer experience to The Arsenal and their fans at Emirates Stadium, but to make a positive impact on our environment at the same time," explained Camden Town Brewery founder, Jasper Cuppaidge.
"The launch of our re-usable PET cup, and our aluminium Hells Lager bottle meant we removed all single-use plastic when it comes to Camden and beer. We're extremely proud of our re-usable cup scheme, and the fact that it's had such a positive impact on our environment."
We are proud to lead the way in sustainability among Premier League clubs. A recent study by BBC Sport and the United Nations-backed Sport Positive Summit saw the club finish top of the league scoring eight points – the maximum available.
Working with Octopus Energy, we were the first Premier League club to switch to 100% green electricity in 2017. Emirates Stadium also recycles 80% of matchday waste, with all the collected food waste sent to an anaerobic digestion plant.
