Teden Mengi made his debut on loan at Derby County at the weekend.

The 18-year-old came on in the 86th minute to help Wayne Rooney’s side close out a 2-1 home victory over Middlesbrough.

This was the Manchester United loanee’s first league appearance of his career.

Mengi’s only other taste of professional action came in the Europa League last August for 10 minutes against LASK. This was his first domestic appearance.

The young centre-back went out on loan to Derby at the end of January. This is just the start for him.

Laird and Garner impress again

Elsewhere out on loan Ethan Laird and James Garner both started for their clubs.

Laird played 81 minutes for MK Dons in a 1-0 win away to Hull City, creating two chances along the way.

Garner featured for all 90 minutes as Nottingham Forest earned a 0-0 draw against promotion hopefuls Bournemouth.


The United midfielder made two key passes, while winning two tackles and making three interceptions. He ranked highest in his team for all three.

He outplayed Bournemouth’s Jack Wilshere, who was substituted after 65 minutes after touching the ball just 28 times.

Disappointment for Pellistri

There was disappointment for Facundo Pellistri who is still hoping to make his debut for Alaves.

Pellistri was an unused substitute away at Barcelona. Alaves used all five subs and the Uruguayan was not among them. Alaves lost 5-1.

Tahith Chong was not in action as Club Brugge’s match was postponed, likewise Di’Shon Bernard, with Salford not in action.
