There were a lot of positives for a number of the Liverpool players that are out on loan this week.

Allan Rodrigues de Souza, Apollon Limassol

Allan Souza finally made his Apollon Limassol debut on Monday, starting in centre midfield as his side twice came from behind to beat Ermis Aradippou, 4-2. Allan was booked on 51 minutes, and was taken off after 80.

Apollon drew 1-1 at AEL on Saturday. Allan was an unused substitute.
