English action featured plenty of Americans Abroad with one making a rare start and another making his return to his side’s starting XI following a recent return from injury.
Brad Guzan earned the starting nod for Middlesbrough on Monday, but the U.S. Men’s National Team goalkeeper couldn’t lead his side to a point in a 2-1 loss to Arsenal. Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil provided the goals for the struggling Gunners, who send Middlesbrough closer to relegation with Monday’s result.
DeAndre Yedlin’s Newcastle, meanwhile, is close to promotion, but failed to take that extra step closer in a 3-1 defeat. Yedlin returned as a substitute over the weekend before earning a start on Monday, playing 78 minutes in the loss to Ipswich Town.
Tim Ream and Fulham are in a push for the promotion playoff, and Monday’s 3-1 win over Aston Villa pushes the club into the fourth and final spot in that competition. David Wagner’s Huddersfield is also in the mix, with a 1-1 draw with Derby County on Monday.
Elsewhere, Mix Diskerud started again for his new club, while Shane O’Neill played the first half of an NAC Breda draw.
