It was a productive week for the Chelsea players on loan, with Kenedy and Michy Batshuayi both scoring a brace to help their teams get massive three points.

Batshuayi came off the bench to score a brace for Borussia Dortmund in a dramatic 3-2 win over Eintracht Frankfurt to keep them just one point from second place in the Bundesliga. His second goal was a 94th minute-winner, making it seven goals in nine games for the Chelsea man.

Kenedy also scored twice on Saturday to help Newcastle beat Southampton 3-0 to push them farther away from a relegation battle.

Tammy Abraham came off the bench for Swansea who battled to a hard-earned 0-0 draw at Huddersfield, having gone down to 10 men early on.

In the Dutch league, Chelsea’s trio of Fankaty Dabo, Matt Miazga and Mason Mount were all in the starting line-up as Vitesse Arnhem’s hopes of European qualification were dealt a blow by a 5-1 defeat at Utrecht.

In the Championship, Ola Aina helped Hull to a thrilling 4-3 win over Norwich, with Michael Hector also played as a late substitute.

Lucas Piazon came on as Fulham boosted their promotion chances with a 3-0 home win over fellow play-off hopefuls Sheffield United on Tuesday, who had Jamal Blackman in goal.

On Saturday, Piazon came on in a 2-1 win at Preston, and Blackman fared better, keeping a clean sheet for the Blades in a 0-0 draw at Ipswich.
