Taiwo Awoniyi, Royal Excel Mouscron

Taiwo Awoniyi made his fourth consecutive start on Saturday, and helped his Royal Excel Mouscron continue their impressive start to the season, as a 2-1 win over Club Brugge saw Mouscron climb into the top three in the Belgian first division, after six games.

Awoniyi was removed after 60 minutes, with his boss bringing on defensive reinforcements to see out the victory.

Pedro Chirivella, Willem II

Pedro Chirivella also made his fourth straight start, but Willem II endured a difficult Saturday afternoon, falling to a 2-1 home defeat to ADO Den Haag. Willem II have lost their opening four games of the season, and sit dead last in the table.

Despite enduring the tough start, Chirivella has been everpresent for his loan side so far this season.

Shamal George, Carlisle United

Shamal George continued as the Carlisle #2 this weekend, and was unused substitute for his side’s 3-0 defeat at Accrington Stanley.

Ryan Kent, SC Freiburg

Ryan Kent was not named in the matchday squad for Freiburg’s 0-0 draw with Borussia Dortmund.

Brooks Lennon, Real Salt Lake

Real Salt Lake suffered a disappointing defeat on Saturday evening, falling 3-2 at the hands of Vancouver Whitecaps. Brooks Lennon started on the bench, before coming on after 76 minutes.

Sheyi Ojo, Fulham

Sheyi Ojo made his England U21 debut on Tuesday, starting the 3-0 win over Latvia, although the winger was removed after 58 minutes with an injury. The setback kept Ojo out of Fulham’s Saturday 1-1 draw against Cardiff, although it is not believed to be serious.

After completing a loan move on deadline day, Divock Origi made his VfL Wolfsburg debut on Saturday, going straight into the first XI for the home clash with Hannover 96.

The game finished 1-1, with Origi playing the full 90 minutes.
