Americans Abroad Weekend Preview: Lichaj and Holmes go head-to-head, Pulisic, and more

For the second-consecutive weekend, a pair of Americans will go head-to-head in the EFL Championship.

Eric Lichaj and Hull City take on Duane Holmes and Derby County in England’s second tier with both teams coming off similar midweek results. Lichaj and Hull took three points from the City Ground on Wednesday as the Tigers downed Nottingham Forest 2-1. Lichaj played the full 90 for Hull, helping them snap a two-match winless streak. Holmes also went the full 90 for Derby County in a 1-0 home victory over Wigan Athletic. Although he has struggled of late for any points, the American midfielder will look to help the Rams pick up a second win in four days time.

Elsewhere, Christian Pulisic and Chelsea face a trip to Burnley in Premier League play, while DeAndre Yedlin and Newcastle United take on Wolverhampton Wanderers. Ventura Alvarado and Necaxa take on Atlas on Friday in Liga MX. Zack Steffen will try to shut down Paderborn in the German Bundesliga, while Weston McKennie will hope to play a part in Schalke’s Rivierderby against Borussia Dortmund.
