Carl Jenkinson had already made several appearances for the Arsenal first team when he was sent out on his first loan. Still just 23 years of age, he will look to take Mathieu Debuchy’s place and compete with Hector Bellerin when the time comes.

More from Pain in the Arsenal

That being said, it would be hard to imagine a worse start to the year for the young right back. He acquired a yellow card in his first match of the season and was sent off in his second, where he played as keeper following Adrian being sent off. He committed an error that lead to a goal, completed less than 80% of his passes and notched just 1 interception and 3 effective clearances for a Hammer’s side that dismantled Arsenal (stats via WhoScored).

Jenkinson made his most notable appearance in a 4-3 home defeat against Bournemouth on August 22nd 2015. He played the ultimate villain by fouling Max Gradel inside the box to get sent off and give away the game winning (or in West Ham’s case, game losing) penalty. Apart from that mishap, he has played fairly well as shown by the fact that West Ham is currently 3rd in the Premier League table.

Jenkinson’s most recent appearance against Norwich involved 45 touches with a 72.2% pass accuracy.
