As many European leagues race to their finishes, several American players are going to feature in the stretch runs.

There’s speculation around White Hart Lane that USMNT back DeAndre Yedlin could earn his first Premier League start when Spurs head to the Britannia Stadium to face Stoke City on Saturday. He could see a familiar face on the other side of the pitch, as Geoff Cameron could return to the Starting XI for the Potters.

After years and years of knowing their guy was starting for Aston Villa each week, U.S. fans will have to wait to see whether Brad Guzan will get the nod over Shay Given against West Ham on Saturday.
