Three of the U.S. national team's most valuable players are in action on Tuesday as they aim to close out their respective seasons in good form before joining training camp later this month ahead of friendlies and World Cup qualifiers.
Michael Bradley's Chievo Verona held AS Roma to a 0-0 draw under a downpour and on a waterlogged pitch in Italy, with the American emerging unscathed after turning in a productive 79-minute shift that included a number of pivotal passes that ultimately did not end up leading to goals.
Clint Dempsey and Tim Howard take center stage with the later games, as both look to maintain their teams' presence in the top 10 of the Premier League table. Dempsey has done just about everything for Fulham this season, scoring 22 goals in all competitions, but he'll try to guide the Cottagers to their first-ever win at Anfield when they take on Liverpool. Fulham can pull even with Liverpool on points for eighth place in the Premier League with a win.
Howard and Everton, meanwhile, are enjoying their typical late-season surge, going 5-1-2 over their last eight games to move into seventh place. The Toffees bring that run of form into a match at Stoke City.
