Miguel Almiron has stole the headlines for Newcastle over the last two weeks but DeAndre Yedlin is coming off a strong weekend performance of his own.
The U.S. Men’s National Team defender played a part in both Newcastle goals in their 2-0 success over Huddersfield Town and now faces another winnable match against West Ham United. Yedlin has made 25 appearances for the Magpies this season, scoring one goal and adding one assist.
Rafa Benitez’s side has also climbed up to 13th in the league table, six points clear of the bottom three. Yedlin should have a busy afternoon slowing down the likes of Marko Arnautovic, Javier Hernandez, and Felipe Anderson.
Elsewhere, Ian Harkes will look to help Dundee United advance in the Scottish FA Cup while Tim Weah and Celtic look to do the same. Tim Ream and Fulham face another tough match this weekend against Chelsea while Antonee Robinson is back for Wigan Athletic.
Christian Pulisic and Borussia Dortmund kick off Bundesliga play against Augsburg, Tyler Adams and RB Leipzig face Nuremberg, and John Brooks will look to shut down Josh Sargent.
