A summary on how Everton’s players out on loan are getting on.
Joe Williams seems to be settling well into his Championship loan with two competent and unfussed matches for Barnsley.
Antonee Robinson rebounded from a much-criticised weekend performance on his Championship debut with a better match as a wingback in the second of two consecutive home defeats.
Liam Walsh played parts of two matches on his introduction to the Championship and did enough to warrant initial praise from Birmingham fans.
Kieran Dowell also played parts of both matches for Nottingham Forest this week and appears to be having less of an impact on games at the moment.
Callum Connolly started his loan spell with Ipswich with a competent display against QPR.
Tyias Browning and Brendan Galloway continued their somewhat torrid loan periods with struggling Sunderland. Browning played both matches and was at fault for the losing goal in the defeat to Nottingham Forest. Galloway apparently had a nightmare in the first match and was not in the squad for the second.
Conor Grant was knocked out during his first appearance for League One Crewe Alexandra in the previous week and remains on the injury list.
Matthew Pennington is also still recovering from his lower leg injury.
Henry Onyekuru is having, it would be fair to say, a mixed experience with an Anderlecht team who are struggling for form, playing in the League and Champions’ League this week.
