2018 has been mixed with highs and lows for Fulham, from their promotion to the English Premier League followed up by their current place in the bottom three. However, the London club will seek a place in the next round of the FA Cup this weekend and Tim Ream will aim to help them turn things around.
Ream has made 13 appearances in all competitions this season, being a vocal leader in Fulham’s backline. Despite conceding four goals against Arsenal on New Years Day, Fulham will be favorites to advance as the Cottagers host Oldham at Craven Cottage.
Elsewhere, Liga MX kicks off this weekend with several U.S. Men’s National Team players hoping to feature. Joe Corona returns to Club Tijuana and will aim for a starting XI spot against Guadalajara. Omar Gonzalez and Michael Orozco will lead respective backlines in their opening matches, while Lynden Gooch and Sunderland travel to Charlton Athletic in League One play.
