It is time once again to catch up on what happened last week with the many players that Chelsea currently have out on loan.
Starting in England and the Premier League, Victor Moses did not make it off the bench for Liverpool in their 3 - 0 win over Southampton. There was better news for Romelu Lukaku who made his return from injury after missing 4 games, he came off the bench with 30 minutes to go and grabbed the winner for Everton with a smart finish inside the box.

Here's a question for Chelsea fans ahead of the game tomorrow - based on recent performances and Andre Schurrle's performance last weekend, would you start Oscar tomorrow?
Before you think to yourselves the answer, and I am not digging Oscar out here, I want you to consider his recent performances.
Chelsea take on Tottenham at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening with a chance to extend their lead to seven points in the Barclays Premier League. As we know with London derbies, anything can happen. Chelsea need to be at their best tomorrow to win this one.
Any game against Tottenham is massive and the game on Saturday evening will be no different.
The rumour mill is rife today featuring Chelsea and any potential moves for strikers in the summer. Earlier, I have posted up the Van Persie link and now Jose Mourinho himself has talked up a move for Mario Balotelli.
Mourinho has signed up with Yahoo for the World Cup this summer and has been featured in their first interview published a short time ago.
A report has appeared in the Press this morning that claims that Robin Van Persie will leave Old Trafford this summer and Jose Mourinho is interested in signing him for Chelsea.
Now this has made me think about the Juan Mata deal because let's face it, most of us were surprised at how simple the deal became for United and Moyes.
Whatever happens between now and the end of the season, there is one player who should be right up there in contention with others for the Player of the Year award and that's Gary Cahill.
We read everyday comment and focus on Jose Mourinho, John Terry and Eden Hazard but it's important that we should not forget the MASSIVE impact Gary Cahill has had on Jose Mourinho and this Chelsea team.
Jose Mourinho is featured in Esquire Magazine and has been speaking of mind games and motivation and it's a fascinating read.
As we all know Mourinho has a tendency to get the very best out of his players and he fails with very few of those. Then asked about his style and successes with numerous players around Europe, Mourinho said:
"It's impossible to make every player better.
We have had welcome news in the past few days that Marco Van Ginkel has returned to training at Cobham during this international break as he makes his surprising return to action. Could Van Ginkel offer Jose Mourinho something different?
Plenty has been said of his injury and the prognosis back at that stage of the season.

Andre Schurrle's devastating hat-trick against Fulham last weekend has opened debate for all of us ahead of Tottenham this Saturday. Has he given Jose Mourinho a real problem?
Let's be honest, Schurrle although spent a time missing with injury, has played a bit part in Chelsea's run of thirteen Premier League games unbeaten that has seen us sit four points clear of second place.
I will admit to being impressed by Liverpool's victory at Southampton this past weekend that has put them above Arsenal into second in the Premier League table. Do you think they are genuine title challengers?
The fact that they have Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge up front, you have to believe they are but what happens if one of them gets injured?
There is still plenty of football to be played but it looks increasingly likely that the Premier League title is returning to Stamford Bridge. The decision to rehire Jose Mourinho in the summer is now looking like the most crucial moment in this season's title race.
Chelsea's 3-1 win over Fulham at the weekend and Arsenal's loss to Stoke saw the gap at the top rise to four points, with Liverpool now looking a more realistic challenger than the Gunners.
