Americans Abroad Weekend Preview: Pulisic faces Robinson, and more

By

14 points may separate Chelsea and Fulham in the English Premier League table, but the two London teams come into Saturday’s contest on opposite runs of form.

Christian Pulisic and the Blues visit Craven Cottage on Saturday, looking to snap a three-match winless run in league play. Frank Lampard’s side have lost to Arsenal and Manchester City in recent weeks, which has seen them slip in the title race. Pulisic has scored once in 10 EPL appearances so far, but could face a tough test against a confident Fulham backline.

Antonee Robinson has been one of the best players in Scott Parker’s side so far, helping the promoted side pick up some impressive results over the past month. Fulham has tied its last five league matches, taking points from Liverpool and Tottenham along the way. Robinson has taken full grasp of the starting left back position, appearing in 13 matches and delivering some impressive moments.

Elsewhere, Tyler Adams and John Brooks go head-to-head in Bundesliga play while Gio Reyna and Borussia Dortmund faces a winnable test against Mainz. Tobin Heath and league leaders Manchester United take on Chelsea in Women’s Super League action. Weston McKennie and Juventus have a tough trip to Inter Milan waiting on Sunday while Sergino Dest and Barcelona takes on Athletic Bilbao on the Spanish Super Cup.
