Loan Watch: Ntcham and Unal net stunners

Loan Watch: Ntcham and Unal net stunners
Manchester City’s loan stars have been in action again this weekend, with some particularly catching the eye.

Enes Unal hit the headlines again, becoming history’s highest scoring Turkish player in Holland with a stunner.

The 19-year-old netted a fantastic long-range strike, creating space with a quick change of pace before unleashing a powerful effort into the top corner against Willem II.

The goal was Unal's second in two games and his 12th of the season.

Bersant Celina completed 90 minutes and grabbed an assist – Darryl Lachman headed the Kosovan’s cross into his own net – while Yaw Yeboah was an unused substitute.

Elsewhere, it was a disappointing day for the Blues’ many loanees at NAC Breda, who lost 2-1 at Graafschap.

Manu Garcia and Brandon Barker managed the full game but Thomas Agyepong and Ashley Smith-Brown were substituted at half-time and James Horsfield (on a yellow card) was replaced on 79 minutes.

Oleksandr Zinchenko was brought on for the final ten minutes of PSV’s 4-0 thrashing of Roda.

In Italy, Olivier Ntcham was on the scoresheet for the second consecutive game, helping Genoa to a 2-0 triumph at Empoli.

The Frenchman was introduced just after the hour mark and opened the scoring on 89 minutes, rifling a superb first-time effort into the bottom corner.

Meanwhile, Joe Hart’s Torino were victorious, coming from behind to defeat Palermo 3-1.

In the English Championship, Aaron Mooy found the net again for Huddersfield with a penalty but couldn’t prevent them from falling to a 3-1 home defeat to league leaders Newcastle.

North of the border, Patrick Roberts made his return to the Hoops squad.

Teammate Mikael Lustig hailed the winger's impact, as he inspired his side - trailing at the break - a comeback win, with two assists.

Over in Spain, Samir Nasri and Pablo Maffeo were on the winning side as Sevilla edged Athletic Bilbao 1-0 and Girona trounced Getafe 5-1. Both completed 90 minutes.

However, Angelino’s Mallorca drew 1-1 at Murcia.
