Another week with goals-a-plenty for the United States National Team members playing for clubs abroad. Aron Johannsson & Haji Wright are still hot plus Tobin Heath & Christen Press opened their accounts with the Manchester United Women.
But that’s not the only good news from the weekend. Christian Pulisic returned the starting lineup for Chelsea. Sergiño Dest made his first start for Barcelona and played the full 90 minutes while Matt Miazga debuted for Anderlecht, beginning his loan from Chelsea.
Let’s get to all the action:
Christen Press - Forward, Manchester United
Press, someone you should probably cover on the back post, scored her first goal for her new club after being left open at the back post with a strong one-touch finish.

Tobin Heath - Forward, Manchester United
The 32-year-old also got her first goal for Man U with an absolute rocket. She recorded assists in her first two matches this month and now she’s got one of her own. They’re off to a perfect start with three straight wins to open the season.
With authority! @TobinHeath with her first goal for @ManUtdWomen and it’s a beaut— U.S. Soccer WNT (@USWNT) October 18, 2020
Samantha Mewis - Midfielder, Manchester City
On the blue side of Manchester, Mewis has been going to work. She scored her second goal of the month in a 1-1 draw vs Reading over the weekend, and it was a stunner as well.
It's 1-1 at the Madejski! @sammymewy levels the score #BarclaysFAWSL pic.twitter.com/Kdvv8UbdE8— Barclays FA Women's Super League (@BarclaysFAWSL) October 18, 2020
Aron Johannsson - Forward, Hammarby
It may have been extremely lucky but when you’re hot, you’re hot. Johannsson scored his 12th goal of the season after the ball fell to his feet and he walked it in the net. His Hammarby side are in 5th place, just a couple points from Europa League Qualification.

Haji Wright - Forward, SonderjyskE
Wright scored a nice goal from outside the box to open the scoring of a 2-0 win vs Brondby. It was his fourth goal in five matches this season. It was a big win for SondersjyskE as it pulled them within two points of Brondby at the top of the Danish table.

Emmanuel Sabbi - Forward, Odense
The 22-year-old scored his second goal of the season for Odense in a 3-1 loss. VIDEO
Lynden Gooch - Midfielder, Sunderland
Sunderland got a 2-1 win at Swindon Town and are sitting in 5th place in England’s third tier. Gooch helped get the scoring started with a perfect cross. VIDEO
Tyler Adams was fouled three times, the most of any player in RB Leipzig’s match.
In Caen’s match, Nicholas Gioacchini had just 27 touches, the fewest of any player to play 90 minutes.
Giovanni Reyna lost possession four times for Borussia Dortmund, the most in that match.
