Americans Abroad Weekend Preview: Pulisic, Robinson, and more


The English Premier League gets underway this weekend as 20 teams aim to earn their first three points of a lengthy campaign.

Christian Pulisic will get his first taste of league play with Chelsea as the Blues take on Manchester United. Pulisic excelled in preseason under Frank Lampard, but will look to be ready for his first tough test in new colors. It is still undecided if Pulisic will play out wide or in the No. 10 position, after seeing time at both this summer. It will be Pulisic’s first competitive meeting with the Red Devils, who like Chelsea, will be trying to rebound from a disappointing campaign last year.

Elsewhere, Antonee Robinson and Wigan Athletic face Preston North End in league play, while DeAndre Yedlin and Newcastle United take on Arsenal. Ethan Horvath will look to be in between the posts for Club Brugge against Oostende. Romain Gall and Malmo take on Hacken in Allsvenskan play. The German DFB Pokal kicks off this weekend as Weston McKennie, Josh Sargent, and Zack Steffen all look to feature for their respective clubs.
