Loan watch

Steven Caulker helped Swansea beat Arsenal in a good weekend for our players out on loan.

There is only one place to start our latest loan watch.

Steven Caulker was in fine form again in the centre of Swansea's defence as Brendan Rodgers' men secured a fine 3-2 win against Arsenal at the Liberty Stadium.

The Academy graduate on a season-long loan cleared off the line from Aaron Ramsey with the scoreline at 1-1, a key moment as Swans took the initiative.

Also in the Premier League, Kyle Naughton played his part as Norwich beat West Brom at The Hawthorns.

The full-back won possession on the edge of his own penalty area and sent the Canaries away on the counter-attack that led to Steve Morison heading home the winner.

Both Norwich and Swansea are in the top 10.

In the Championship, Harry Kane started brightly for Millwall against Birmingham City before the Lions' afternoon turned into a nightmare at the New Den.

He forced a decent save from Blues' keeper Boaz Myhill and had another effort cleared off the line before Curtis Davies opened the scoring for Birmingham.

It went downhill quickly from there for the Lions - they had two men sent off and Chris Hughton's men ran out 6-0 winners.

Andros Townsend played 90 minutes as Leeds came from behind to take a 1-1 draw at Palace and goalkeeper David Button kept another clean sheet as Doncaster played out a goalless draw against Cardiff at the Keepmoat Stadium.

In League One, Dean Parrett enjoyed a fine debut alongside Jon Obika as the Spurs loanees helped the Glovers to an important 2-1 win against Tranmere.

Meanwhile, David Bentley’s season-long loan with West Ham United has ended, due to the knee injury he sustained in October. The right-sided midfielder has since been receiving treatment at Spurs Lodge after undergoing surgery on the injury three months ago.
