Three of Manchester United’s loan players represented their clubs this week with Chilean striker Angelo Henriquez coming off the bench for Dynamo Zagreb, Nani playing for Sporting CP in the UEFA Champions League and Javier Hernandez coming off the bench for Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League. Nani and Henriquez both scored for their sides this week.
Here is how I feel all three players fared:
Angelo Henriquez – Dynamo Zagreb
Angelo Henriquez played 33 minutes in the 5-1 win over FC Astra in the Europa League. Henriquez came on for Duje Cop in the 67th minute and made a difference straight away by scoring three minutes later with a cracking strike from outside of the box. He also had another chance right at the death of the game but hit the post.

Nani – Sporting CP
Nani played 90 minutes in the 1-1 draw with Maribor in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night. Nani had a decent game for a change he looks like a different player at Sporting Lisbon since he joined on loan in the summer and he topped off a good game with a goal that made his team go 1-0 up in the opener of the Champions League group stage. He took his goal well and slotted it into the left bottom corner of the goal.

Javier Hernandez – Real Madrid
Javier Hernandez played eight minutes in the 5-1 win over FC Basel in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night. Hernandez came on when the game was over really he had a chance on goal but couldn’t have done much with the speed of the ball that was played towards him in the penalty area.
