On Sunday, Sheffield Wednesday won 2-1 away to Bristol City and Massimo Luongo delivered one of his best performances since his move to Hillsborough. The 27-year-old has struggled with injuries in his debut season, but he’s often impressed when fit and proved his worth over the weekend. Luongo even got on the scoresheet, so he’s enjoying a great return to the first-team.

Who did Sheffield Wednesday sign Josh Windass on loan from?

Against City, Luongo played for 75 minutes, had 42 touches, won one aerial duel, completed 69.7% of his 33 passes, created one chance, had two shots with one hitting the back of the net, made one clearance, gave away three fouls, made two tackles and won one free-kick.

The Australian international joined Wednesday from Queens Park Rangers for just shy of £1m in 2019 and has gone on to make 23 appearances in all competitions, scoring three goals. He’s only amassed 979 minutes of Championship football under Garry Monk due to injury problems but has shown how important he is to Wednesday when fit.

The Owls could be losing Hutchinson and possibly Kieran Lee this summer, but they may thrive keeping Barry Bannan, Massimo Luongo, Joey Pelupessy and Alex Hunt next season.
