Arsenal failed to secure a fourth Premier League win on the bounce over the weekend, with Brighton & Hove Albion having the upper hand throughout the contest during a 0-0 draw at the Amex Stadium.
The Gunners' loan players also endured mixed fortunes in their most recent fixtures, and here Sports Mole rounds up how they performed for their respective clubs.
Hector Bellerin: Bellerin played the full 90 minutes of Real Betis' 2-0 defeat to Villarreal in Sunday's La Liga clash, making a costly error to give the ball away to ex-Gunner Francis Coquelin, who set up Arnaut Danjuma for the game's opening goal.
William Saliba: Saliba started for Marseille in a 2-0 defeat to Ligue 1 champions Lille and also found himself at fault for the opener - scored by Jonathan David - before redeeming himself to prevent Burak Yilmaz from firing home, one of his five tackles on the day.
Matteo Guendouzi: Guendouzi was handed the captain's armband for Les Olympiens in that defeat and posted a 91% pass accuracy, but he lost possession 10 times as Marseille fell to a disappointing loss.
Lucas Torreira: Torreira came off the bench for the final 25 minutes of Fiorentina's defeat to Napoli, and despite putting in a good shift - making three tackles and winning four out of five ground duels - he could not inspire a late comeback.
Konstantinos Mavropanos: Mavropanos played the full 90 minutes for Stuttgart in a 3-1 Bundesliga win over Hoffenheim and put in an impressive shift - scoring his side's second goal on the hour mark and winning four out of five ground duels.
Reiss Nelson: Nelson made the Feyenoord squad for the first time after shaking off a groin injury but was an unused substitute as Vitesse won 2-1.
Daniel Ballard: Ballard started and played the full 90 for Millwall in a 1-0 win over Barnsley in the Championship, making four clearances and three tackles to help preserve his side's clean sheet.
