Americans Abroad Weekend Preview: Robinson, Ream face Man City, and more


Fulham’s impressive first-half of the English Premier League campaign will have Marco Silva and his squad high on confidence, but a trip to second-place Manchester City will pose a tough challenge for the London club this weekend.

Antonee Robinson and Tim Ream have remained consistent starters for Fulham and Saturday’s showdown with the defending champions will be their toughest challenge yet in league play. Ream and Robinson have anchored the left side of Silva’s backline this season, with the U.S. men’s national team centerback starting in all 13 matches to date. Robinson has returned from injury to start in each of Fulham’s last five league matches, helping deliver a four-match unbeaten run to date.

Both players will be eager to help Fulham earn a first head-to-head victory over the Citizens since 2009 as the West London club aims to crack the top-six by weekend’s end.

Elsewhere in England, Christian Pulisic and Chelsea host London rivals Arsenal. Josh Sargent aims to return for Norwich City against Rotherham United.

In Spain, Yunus Musah returns from suspension as Valencia visit Real Sociedad.

In Germany, Gio Reyna and Joe Scally headline the American contingent in Bundesliga action.

In France, Tim Weah and Lille face off with Rennes.

Elsewhere, Cameron Carter-Vickers and Ian Harkes go head-to-head in Scottish Premiership action. Sam Vines and Royal Antwerp face Anderlecht in Belgian First Division play. Johnny Cardoso and Internacional welcome Athletico Paranaense to town in Brazilian Serie A play.

  1. In other news Paxten Aaronson looks set for a transfer to Eintracht Frankfurt. Wonder how quickly he will become a first team regular? Always thought the Union should have done a better job to get him more into the first team rotation this year.

    • “Always thought the Union should have done a better job to get him more into the first team rotation this year.”

      Isn’t that Paxton’s job? To force them to give him more first team minutes?

      Or should he sue them for breach of contract on his playing time?

      Perhaps the Union have an anti American bias?

    • Probably headed to Eintract II in the 5th Division to start. He’ll be behind Kamada, Goetze, and Lindstrom. Goetze is of course nearing the end of his career and Kamala’s contract is ending in June with no progress to resign as of yet. So he could find regular minutes next season. Honestly it’s better for U20s if he isn’t in the first team so he’s released for U20 WC.

  2. Boy, Oh Boy……Fulham and Marco Silva are going to be tested to the MAX with Manchester City and Haaland on the attack. This game is really going to push Tosin Adarabioyo (or Issa Diop), Bobby Reid (or Kenny Tete), Tim Ream and Jedi Robinson to their ultimate limit!!! One thing is for sure, Fulham is going to be beat up, battered and bruised…..hope they somehow pull up an upset!!!!

    • GGG name dropped Ream today, as well as EPB, CCV, and McKenzie. This game could be one that gets Ream added to the 26. I’m still on the fence about him, posted about it before. But I hope he does well.
