The roundup of USMNT players in Europe and Mexico starts in the Premier League where DeAndre Yedlin's Newcastle United shutout Huddersfield Town 2-0 at home. Huddersfield went a man down with a red card to Tommy Smith in the 20th minute. Salomon Rondon put Newcastle up in the 46th with Ayoze Perez scoring in the 52nd. Martin Dubravka kept the clean sheet without having to make a save.
"We wanted to get off to a fast start in the second-half," Yedlin said. "Because the longer the game goes – especially when they’re down to ten men – the more belief they get and the harder it will be. It was the perfect time for a goal. It got the crowd up on their feet and from that point on they had to push at us and it was a little bit easier to play and get in behind."
Tim Ream's Fulham lost 3-1 at West Ham. Ryan Babel opened the scoring for Fulham in the 3rd minute with West Ham equalizing in the 29th. West Ham added goals in the 40th and a minute into stoppage time.
"We started very well,we created some good chances and scored a goal," Fulham manager Claudio Ranieri said. "We suffered a lot on our left flank and set plays. It was a pity that the referee was covered for the handball by Chicharito. I hope for VAR next season could make it better. Now football is so fast and there are so many players in the box. For the referee, it’s very difficult to see everything. For this reason, VAR could make it better. It exists in Italy, in the Champions League and VAR will be important in England to help the referee."
