The highlight of the weekend for Yanks Abroad, unless you’re a Chelsea fan, was a big matchup in the Premier League between Christian Pulisic and Zack Steffen. Manchester City traveled to London with both teams badly needing a win to stay within striking distance of the top of the table.

Steffen got the nod in goal with Ederson in isolation with Covid-19. His side utterly dominated in the first half, going into the break with a three goal advantage. He didn’t have to make a save until an easy grab in the last moments of the half. Pulisic was one of the few Chelsea players to turn in a decent performance on the day. He completed nine dribbles and won 13 duels, both the most of any player on the pitch. The 22-year-old got an “MLS assist” by creating the home side’s consolation goal in the 92nd minute.

Over in Germany, Julian Green had a Man of the Match showing as Greuther Fürth beat St. Pauli 2-1. He converted a penalty kick in the 24th minute to open the scoring. He was also giving St. Pauli fits all day and was fouled six times, more than any other player.

Shaq Moore assisted the match winner in Tenerife’s 1-0 win with a beautiful, curling cross to the back post. It was the second assist of the season for the 24-year-old right back.

As rumored for a while now, Aron Johannsson and Hammarby have parted ways. The 30-year-old is now a free agent while he eyes a move to Major League Soccer.

Weston McKennie was the most accurate passer in Juventus’ 4-1 win over Udinese, completing 32 of 33 pass attempts. Giovanni Reyna won the most duels (nine) in Borussia Dortmund’s 2-0 win over Wolfsburg. Centerback John Brooks also went 90 minutes, but on the losing end of the pitch.

On Monday, Andrija Novakovich returned from an injury that kept him out a few weeks. He came on for the final 11 minutes as Frosinone fell 2-1 vs SPAL in Serie B action.
