U.S. Men’s National Team defender DeAndre Yedlin had a strong Premier League campaign with Newcastle United a season ago, and the 25-year-old has his sights set on a strong start to the 2018-19 campaign this weekend.
England’s top-flight kicks off this weekend with Newcastle welcoming Tottenham to St. James Park in Saturday’s opener. Yedlin made 34 appearances for Rafa Benitez’s bunch a season ago and the right back will seek to increase that number even more this season.
Elsewhere, Matt Miazga will seek his Nantes debut as Ligue 1 play gets underway this weekend. Tim Weah will look to follow up a strong performance in last weekend’s French Super Cup triumph as PSG kicks off league action as well.
Andrija Novakovich will get his first taste of the Dutch Eredivisie as Fortuna Sittard travels to Excelsior. Eric Lichaj and Hull City travel to Sheffield Wednesday in the EFL Championship, while Antonee Robinson and Wigan face a tough test at Aston Villa.
