Adam Bogdan and Sheyi Ojo were both unused at the weekend. Meanwhile Pedro Chirivella’s loan spell at Extremadura ended before it had even begun as registration problems have left the Spaniard unable to play.

In his 6th game for the club Awoniyi notched his 5th goal, a second half strike that sealed a 1-0 victory against Lokeren.
Since his return Awoniyi has scored 5 goals including 3 match winners. He has also notched 2 assists. Jurgen Klopp are you watching.
Ejaria was back in the Reading starting line up this weekend after recovering from illness as The Royals faced Rotherham in the Sky Bet Championship.

Hertha Berlin faced Bayern Munch this weekend with Grujic looking to make his mark against Liverpool’s Champions League opponents.
Despite a lively display in midfield Grujic was unable to prevent Hertha falling to a narrow 1-0 defeat. He will be hoping his parent club will fare better at the Allianz Arena in a few weeks time.

There were two reds in action on Monday night as Wilson’s Derby faced Nottingham Forest in the East Midlands Derby.
