Kasper Schmeichel are currently with Anderlecht and after a horror performance for Denmark playing mini nation San Marino, he was back in action last week, against Leicester City sister club OH Leuven, coming out 5-1 winners as they climbed to 2nd position in the table.

N’Golo Kantè is well in place at Al-Ittihad, currently in 6th position. So far played 11 league games and scored 1 goal. He was last in action on the 26th of October, playing Al Hazm, just managing a 2-2 draw. He is currently playing alongside former Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema. It’s said the Kantè could return to English football in January.

George Hirst continues his contribution to a in form Ipswich Town team, currently being 2nd in the Championship on a promotion spot, just behind Leicster. Hirst scored in their latest game vs. Plymouth, winning 3-2.

Demarai Gray is also in Saudi and has so far played 6 league games for Al Ittifaq and scored 1 goal as the Jamaica international hopefully continues to produce good games for his new club. Al Ittifaq are currently 7th in the table. Riyad Mahrez is also in Saudi action as his Al-Ahli stays 5th in the table, so far 11 games and 4 goals for the former fox.

Despite having major problems vs. Man City (0-3) it looks as if Harry Maguire will play some type of part under Erik ten Hag as his options in that central defence positions looks limited also using Jonny Evans from start in certain games. Both the two former Leicester men are on 5 in the tally of games in Premier League.

Chelsea surprisingly had to see themselves on the defeating side as Ben Mee watched his Brentford winning 2-0, without getting on the field. Wesley Fofana and Ben Chilwell did not feature for Chelsea. Oxford are 2nd in the 3rd tier as they drew 2-2 with Wycombe in their latest game. Elliott Moore played the full game of The O’s.

Matty James and Andy King were both absent when Bristol City were defeated 2-0 by Cardiff, something that resulted in Nigel Pearson getting the sack. Lewis Brunt is in good form for Mansfield, playing the full game in the 2-1 win vs. Walsall as they are now 4th in the table.

Chris Wood had to see Forest being hammered 3-0 by Liverpool, himself not involved in the clash as he suffered from a hamstrning problem, not possible to be part of the action at Anfield. Jeffrey Schlupp was in the starting line-up for Crystal Palace in their 1-2 defeat to Tottenham. James Maddison played for Spurs.

Solihull Moors are currently 4th in National League, winning their game vs. Wealdstone. Richard Stearman appeared in the game for his new club, leaving Derby in the summer to take on the challenge of getting The Moors in to the EFL.
