If you are in the mood to watch some mouth-watering matches, this weekend’s Americans Abroad action is perfect for you.
Several Americans will be involved in intriguing, high-profile matches this weekend, including Clint Dempsey. Dempsey and Tottenham will take on Manchester City on Sunday and a win for Spurs at White Hart Lane would be huge, as it could potentially move Tottenham into fourth place and give them the Premiership’s UEFA Champions League qualifiers spot ahead of Arsenal.
Another interesting game that will take place in England will go down on Monday. Brad Guzan is aiming to lead Aston Villa as they try and grab a result on the road against Manchester United, but the Red Devils will be keen on taking all three points so as to try and secure that the Premiership crown is theirs.
If that is not enough to satisfy your cravings, Saturday has a fixture worth watching. Jozy Altidore and AZ Alkmaar host third-placed PSV Eindhoven and the U.S. Men’s National Team striker will try to add to his impressive scoring total while trying to help lead AZ to victory.
