Americans Abroad Weekend Preview: Pulisic, Brooks, and more

Christian Pulisic and Chelsea have one eye on the upcoming UEFA Champions League Final later this month against Manchester City, but first will be looking to pick up its first trophy of the season on Saturday at Wembley Stadium.

Thomas Tuchel’s men face off with top four rivals Leicester City on Saturday in the FA Cup Final, with both teams looking to end their domestic schedules on a high note. Pulisic is coming off a 90 minute performance against Arsenal on Wednesday in a 1-0 league loss, but showed promising moments in the London Derby defeat.

The 22-year-old has picked up his performances over the last few months, just in time to hopefully lead the Blues to a pair of trophies before the end of May. Leicester City defeated Chelsea 2-0 in Premier League play back in January and will be hoping to find similar success against the Blues on Saturday.

Elsewhere, John Brooks and Wolfsburg take on RB Leipzig while Sergino Dest and Barcelona try to stay alive in the La Liga title race. Weston McKennie and Juventus face a tough Serie A clash against champions Inter Milan, looking to jump into the top four. Daryl Dike and Cameron Carter-Vickers both start their EFL Championship Playoff ties on Monday while DeAndre Yedlin and Galatasaray need a win or draw, and some help to win the Turkish Super Lig title.
