As Jurgen Klopp oversaw back to back wins in Liverpool's first Champions League fixtures of the season against Ajax and FC Midtjylland, it was also a set of productive evenings for a number of his stars out on loan as well - it could even solve a future transfer headache for the Reds boss.
Harry Wilson made his first start for Cardiff City in the Championship last week after making his move to South Wales on loan until the end of the season.
It was a deadline day deal which is still leaving some Bluebirds fans pinching themselves at calling a player of Wilson's quality their own, but after talks with Klopp, the club believed a temporary spell in his native homeland was best for the player's development.
He was named in the starting lineup for the first time against the side he spent a season with last year - Bournemouth. He followed this up with an appearance against Middlesbrough but was absent for the clash against Derby County due to injury.
He proved crucial against Bournemouth and even scored his side's equaliser after a pinpoint cross from Junior Hoilett found Wilson on the edge of the box and the Welshman buried his effort into the bottom corner to level the match with half an hour to play.
The two sides would exchange chances, but neither could find a winner.
Wales Online picked Wilson as their star man in last night's player ratings for his full debut performance against Bournemouth.
Cardiff City Correspondent, Glen Williams gave the 23-year-old an eight and said: "Was central to anything good in City's attack. Popped up in crucial areas, slid nice balls in behind and pulled the trigger when he could. Scored a lovely goal to get Cardiff back on terms."
Liverpool were originally looking for a bid of around £20million to allow Wilson to leave on a permanent basis and on this evidence, it could prove a cheap price point or even an argument to change transfer stance.
And he wasn't the only Liverpool man to impress, Sheyi Ojo, also on loan from the Reds at Cardiff, starred alongside Wilson and was influential alongside him in the draw against the Cherries.
He scored a seven in Wales Online's player ratings with his developing partnership with the winger he has played with since he was a teenager a key talking point.
"Embarked on a number of exciting, mazy runs on the right wing and kick-started many attacks. Linked up nicely with Wilson. That final ball just needs to be crisper" Glen Williams said of the attacker's performance.
Interestingly, in the games he has played so far, Wilson seems to primarily being played in a number 10 role, taking up a spot behind striker Kieffer Moore.
Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp will want to keep an eye on how he continues to progress in such a system, with Anfield most recently seeing a role taken up by Phillipe Coutinho.
The other Reds player on loan at Cardiff, Sheyi Ojo scored the equaliser against Middlesbrough last weekend and was Wales Online's star man in what was reportedly a 'drab performance' overall against Derby.
Cardiff City reporter Glen Williams said: "(Ojo) Made one or two eye-catching runs and looked bright for the most part. Then played that killer ball for Kieffer Moore to latch on to after a terrific run."
Ojo has been playing on the right wing consistently in a 4-2-3-1, a formation Klopp has adopted in recent fixtures. While he would do exceptionally well to force his way into the German manager's plans following the signing of Diogo Jota, he is surely adding the millions to his transfer fee on current form.
Harvey Elliott was another Reds loanee making his first appearances for a new side last week, as the teenager made his debut for Blackburn Rovers in their defeat to Watford.
Rovers fell to a 3-1 loss but Elliott made his mark regardless and showed signs of things to come.
LancsLive gave the youngster a seven in their player ratings, the highest score given out by Jaquob Crooke with the reporter remarking: "His quality was there for all to see and for a 17-year-old making his Championship debut, he more than held his own."
Blackburn boss Tony Mowbray was just as pleased with his new signing and believes he can create a new fruitful partnership at Ewood Park.
Speaking after the game he said: "I think the combination of Elliott and Armstrong is going to be something we can really look forward to I think as he steps in on his left foot and Armstrong runs as he sees the space.
“It seems to me that he has fantastic qualities to go and integrate in areas and backlines are going to have to be on their metal to stop that.”
Elliott followed it up by scoring his first goal for Rovers in a 4-0 thumping of Coventry at the weekend, during which he also notched an assist.
However, he then endured a 'difficult evening' around the same time Liverpool were in European action against Championship leaders Reading, although he did provide yet another assist in the 4-2 loss as he is proving a major asset to Blackburn so early in his career.
Lancs Live, reporting on the game, described the evening as a crucial learning curve for the teenager in what was ultimately a difficult evening.
With all three of the Liverpool stars impressing already in their loan spells, Jurgen Klopp is getting hints on a completely new attacking forward line, which could end up saving the Reds boss millions in the transfer window when the time eventually comes to replace his current stars.
