Americans Abroad Weekend Preview: Robinson, Pulisic, and more


The EFL Championship season resumes in England this weekend and one player who is thriving is defender Antonee Robinson. Despite a drop in form for Wigan Athletic, Robinson continues to earn valuable minutes for the club in his second season.

The 22-year-old has started six matches for the Latics this season and will look to try to help them earn three points at Hull City on Saturday. Robinson will see a familiar foe on the other side of the pitch in the form of veteran defender Eric Lichaj. Robinson is one of only two Wigan defenders to start every league match so far this campaign.

Elsewhere, Christian Pulisic should be well rested for Chelsea as the club takes on Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineaux. Danny Williams begins play with Cyprus first division side Pafos FC, while Zack Steffen and Alfredo Morales return to Bundesliga play with Fortuna Dusseldorf. Duane Holmes and Derby County kick off EFL Championship play this weekend against Cardiff City.
