ITALY:

Napoli and Udinese faced off against each other this weekend, and guess how much playing time Nathaniel Chalobah and Stipe Perica got?

..I'll just leave it there.

Juan Cuadrado played 68 minutes in Juventus' 3-1 win over Empoli, and Wallace got 13 minutes off the bench for rock-bottom Carpi.

OTHERS:

Patrick Bamford, who has been speaking to the press about his secret desire to become a Sith Lord, was left unused on the bench for Crystal Palace, who went about business as usual against their favourite opponents, Liverpool.

Our boys over at Arnhem had a weekend to forget, losing their second consecutive game in front of their own fans. Lewis Baker and Dominic Solanke started as usual, while Izzy Brown and Nathan were substitutes well into the second half. Young Zimbabwean midfielder, Marvelous Nakamba, got himself sent off in the 42nd minute and supposedly as a consequence, Lewis Baker was inexplicably brought off at half-time for fellow midfielder, Sheran Yeini, instead of an attacking player. Their opponents, AZ Alkmaar fully capitalized on Vitesse's lack of midfield players and proved too much for them in the second half, ending up 2-0 winners.

A full match report and an assessment of our loan brigade's performance can be read at From Arnhem with Love.

AS Monaco conceded three goals in the space of twelve minutes in the first half after taking a somewhat early lead, and lost 3-1 to Bordeaux. Mario Pasalic played 75 minutes.
