Arsenal might be enjoying their start to the Premier League season, with their summer signings shining brightly in the opening weeks of the campaign. But Arsene Wenger still has to keep an eye out on the numerous Arsenal products out on loan.
Within the confines of the Premier League, Ryo Miyaichi made a late substitute appearance for Wigan Athletic in their 2-1 loss to Fulham on Saturday. It was the Japanese starletâ€™s 2nd appearance for the Latics after he played in their Capital One Cup opener against Nottingham Forest. Manager Roberto Martinez praised the 19 year oldâ€™s impact, almost guaranteeing him a place in their 3rd round tie against West Ham on Tuesday.Over in Italy, Nicklas Bendtner made his long-awaited debut for Juventus as the Dane also was a late substitute against Chievo, coming on for Fabio Quagliarella, who scored a brace to extend the Old Ladyâ€™s 100% record in Serie A.
Arsenalâ€™s forgotten Brazilian, Denilson against featured for Sao Paulo as they beat Cruzerio 1-0. The midfielder, whose place in the side could be threatened by the arrival of Ganso, was substituted with six minutes remaining with a yellow card to show for his exploits.
Down in Spain, Park Chu-Young endeared himself to the Celta Vigo faithful by proving to be the super-sub as he scored the winner 68 minutes after coming on as a substitute. The Korean strikerâ€™s goal came at a vital moment for Celta as Getafe had just scored to make it 1-1. Wenger already has a wealth of attacking talent under his disposal but the further development of the likes of Miyaichi and Chu-Young can only benefit the team in the long run.
