Loan Watch: Clean sheet for Henderson
It was a great weekend for three of Manchester United’s on-loan players, as their sides recorded important wins in their various leagues.
The Blades struck three times in the first half at Bramall Lane to blow Sean Dyche’s side away, with John Lundstram netting a brace and John Fleck scoring his first top-flight goal.
In Italy, Chris Smalling’s Roma powered to a third consecutive win in Serie A, with goals from Nicolo Zaniolo and Jordan Veretout helping the Giallorossi to a 2-1 home victory over Napoli.
The United right-back helped The Shrimps to keep their third clean sheet of the campaign and they are now level on points with Stevenage in 23rd place.
Ethan Hamilton missed Southend’s 1-0 defeat at Sunderland through suspension, while Cameron Borthwick-Jackson was an unused substitute in Tranmere’s 3-1 win at MK Dons.
In Scotland, there was heartbreak for Joel Castro Pereira as his Hearts side were beaten 3-0 by Rangers in the Betfred Cup semi-final. Filip Helander finished smartly past Pereira to give the Gers a half-time lead, before Alfredo Morelos capped off the win with a second-half double.
Meanwhile, in Norway, Aidan Barlow scored for Tromso in their 3-2 loss at Sarpsborg.
Finally, Alex Fotijcek was in goal as non-league Stalybridge Celtic were defeated 1-0 at Radcliffe Borough.
