In France, Trevoh Chalobah and Lorient followed up their incredible weekend win against Paris Saint-Germain with a 1-1 draw at Rennes, leaving them inside the relegation zone on goal difference only and with a game in hand on teams around them. The 21-year-old was back in midfield and played the full 90 minutes.
Elsewhere in Europe, Matt Miazga was involved for all but the final few minutes as Anderlecht progressed in their domestic cup competition with a 2-0 win away at RFC Liege. It was the eighth clean sheet the American has contributed towards this campaign.
Wins for Ampadu and Batshuayi
The Premier League schedule continues unrelentingly and all five of our loanees in the division featured this midweek. Ethan Ampadu started his 13th consecutive game for Sheffield United as the sharpened Blades came from behind to beat West Bromwich Albion, for whom Conor Gallagher came off the bench for the final 15 minutes. The two sides are now separated by just a point at the foot off the table.
