Americans Abroad Weekend Preview: Pulisic’s Chelsea faces Yedlin’s Newcastle, and more

The international break is over and the return to league action will feature several matchups involving Americans Abroad facing fellow Americans.

Christian Pulisic and DeAndre Yedlin will look to move past the disappointment of the U.S. Men’s National Team loss to Canada when their teams meet in English Premier League action. Pulisic will resume his fight for minutes at Chelsea while Yedlin will look to build on his impressive start against Manchester United prior to the international break.

A pair of American defenders will meet on Saturday in Stoke as Tim Ream and Fulham travel to Cameron Carter-Vickers and Stoke City. Both players are on opposite ends of the EFL Championship table after 11 matches so far this season.

Ream and Fulham are seventh in England’s second tier with 19 points and only two defeats so far. The 32-year-old veteran USMNT defender is coming off international duty with Gregg Berhalter’s side and will return to helping the London club inch higher up the standings.

Carter-Vickers and Stoke are bottom of the league table, but picked up their first league win of the season back on Oct. 5th. Since arriving on loan from Tottenham, Carter-Vickers has made six league appearances for the Potters this season, impressing in the last few. It will be the first of two meetings between these USMNT teammates this league season.

Elsewhere, Geoff Cameron and Eric Lichaj will meet in the EFL Championship, while Tyler Adams and John Brooks could meet in Bundesliga action if fit. Emmanuel Sabbi and Christian Cappis headline Hobro’s trip to Horsens, Tyler Boyd faces his old club in Turkey, and Sergino Dest and Ajax take on RKC Waalwijk.

  1. Hate to say it because I love Yedlin but…low-key hoping Pulisic roasts him, as Yedlin would be his direct defender if Pulisic is playing on the left wing. Good luck to both! We need some good news.
