Andrija Novakovich has started off his campaign in the Eredivisie on fine form, scoring four goals in his first six appearances with Fortuna Sittard. The 22-year-old Reading loanee will seek to help Sittard pull a major upset on Saturday as they welcome Ajax to town.
The U.S. Men’s National Team striker is coming off a two-goal performance in Sittard’s 4-4 draw with Willem II last weekend. Despite only one victory so far this season, Novakovich and Co. will seek to inch higher in the league table from their current 11th place position.
Elsewhere this weekend, Matt Miazga continues his first-team minutes with Ligue 1 side Nantes while Timothy Weah battles for a place in Thomas Tuchel’s 18-man squad at PSG. Christian Pulisic and Borussia Dortmund will be favorites to grab all three points against Bayer Leverkusen in Bundesliga play.
Tim Ream is coming his first minutes of the season with Fulham in midweek action and the London club faces a trip to Everton this weekend. DeAndre Yedlin will look to anchor the Newcastle backline once again against Leicester City, while Antonee Robinson and Eric Lichaj are the players to watch in the English second-tier.
