DeAndre Yedlin had both highs and lows a week ago against Chelsea. The Newcastle wingback gave his team a spark on Saturday against the defending Premier League champs.
The U.S. Men’s National Team right back leveled the score against Manchester City, making it 1-1 at the Etihad Stadium. He’s the first American to score in the Premier LEague since Geoff Cameron did in March 2014.
Raheem Sterling left Yedlin in the dust as City grabbed an early lead through the winger’s strong right-footed finish.
However, Yedlin kept his head and netted his first Newcastle goal since Sept. 2016. Salomon Rondon’s hold-up play in the 30th minute allowed Yedlin to make himself available in the box.
Rondon’s crossing pass his Yedlin in stride and the 25-year-old slotted past Brazilian international Ederson.
