Monday’s soccer news starts with the USMNT players in Europe roundup, specifically with the Premier League. Tim Ream and Antonee Robinson’s Fulham beat Southampton 2-1 at home with an own-goal putting Fulham up in the 32nd minute. Southampton equalized in the 56th, but Joao Palhinha returned Fulham’s lead in the 88th minute.
“It’s our moment now to have a great goal to decide the game as unfortunately for us, in both Manchester games we lost in the last minute but today it was for us,” Fulham head coach Marco Silva said. “I think we deserved the three points, even if we didn’t perform at our best level.”
Tyler Adams and Brenden Aaronson’s Leeds United drew 0-0 at Newcastle United. Christian Pulisic subbed out in the 87th minute of Chelsea’s 1-1 draw at Nottingham Forest. Chelsea took the lead from a 16th minute Raheem Sterling goal with Forest equalizing in the 63rd.
“Overall when the game was controlled for us in the first-half, I didn’t think we did well enough,” Chelsea manager Graham Potter said. “Our performance level wasn’t good enough in terms of we didn’t move the ball fast enough, didn’t have enough movement. You have to credit the opponent in both halves. In the first-half, they defended deeper and attacked big spaces and in the second-half when it became a bit more uncontrolled, we suffered as well.”
