Geoff Cameron (Stoke City)
Cameron played well on Stoke’s backline as the Potters played one of their best games all year, defeating Spurs, 3-0. He hasn’t been amazing over the course of the season, but Cameron has been solid down the stretch, and a 7.9 whoscored.com rating confirmed that this weekend.
Brad Guzan (Aston Villa)
Guzan was not selected in Villa’s 1-0 win against West Ham and watched backup Shay Given put up a clean sheet.
Tim Howard (Everton)
In Everton’s 2-0 loss against Sunderland, Howard
DeAndre Yedlin (Tottenham Hotspur)
Yedlin was an unused substitute Tottenham’s aforementioned loss to Stoke.
Gedion Zelalem (Arsenal)
Zelalem played 68 minutes for Arsenal’s U-21s, but did little of note. On a positive note, it seems that Zelalem has made the permanent transition to the U-21s.
Regular national teamers not in the Premier League
Alejandro Bedoya (Nantes)
Bedoya watched the game from the stands, as a reserve, as Nantes lost 2-1 to Bordeaux.
John Anthony Brooks (Hertha Berlin)
It was a bad day for Brooks, who was forced off due to an injury in the 55th minute. To make matters worse, his backline had already conceded twice before his departure as part of a 2-0 loss to a rising Borussia Dortmund squad.
Timothy Chandler (Eintracht Frankfurt)
Chandler was impressive over the weekend, playing a good right back and scoring a headed goal from a corner in a 3-1 win over Hoffenheim. It’s the Yank’s first goal of the year, and he also lead his side in passes, notching 62 in the contest. All this lead to him being the second-highest rated player in the game on whoscored.com.
Julian Green (Hamburg, on loan from Bayern Munich)
As has been the case every week since the winter break, Green was not selected in the Hamburg side.
Fabian Johnson (Borussia Monchengladbach)
Deployed on the right wing, Johnson’s sizzling form continued as he produced his second assist in three weeks and played well throughout a 3-0 win over Leverkusen. Gladbach now need just two points in their final two games to automatically qualify for the UCL group stage.
Aron Johannsson (AZ Alkmaar)
With just two minutes left and his side locked in a 2-2 home draw with NAC Breda, Johannsson teed up a laser beam from 35 yards out that zipped into the back of the net to push Alkmaar to a 3-2 win. It was the American’s seventh goal of the season, and it was probably the best by an American in Europe this term (see below). More importantly, it brought AZ into a tie for the Netherlands’ automatic Europa League spot in third place with Feyenoord with just one game left.
Emerson Hyndman (Fulham)
Playing for Fulham’s U-21 side at White Hart Lane, Hyndman played 90 minutes as the Cottagers fell 2-0 to Spurs’ youngsters. As a result, Fulham’s U-21 team was relegated from the top division of English youth football.
Eric Lichaj (Nottingham Forest)
The Championship season wrapped up on May 2, with Lichaj’s Nottingham Forest team finishing in 14th.
Tim Ream (Bolton Wanderers)
The Championship season wrapped up on May 2, with Ream’s Bolton side finishing in 18th.
Danny Williams (Reading)
The Championship season wrapped up on May 2, with Williams’ Reading side finishing in 19th.
Terrence Boyd (RB Leipzig)
Boyd suffered an ACL tear in a game against Ingolstadt in December which will likely keep him out for the rest of the season.
Bobby Wood (Erzegebirge Aue)
Wood played 78 minutes for Erzegebirge as they got a huge 2-1 win at Union Berlin. With 34 points, Erzegebirge Aue are locked in a three-way tie for the relegation playoff place with just two games left.
Rubio Rubin (FC Utrecht)
In a 2-2 draw with Excelsior, Rubin played a full shift at striker for Utrecht, but he didn’t have a huge impact in the game. He had one shot saved and missed the target twice, but it’s still a positive to see the 19-year-old getting regular action.
Alfredo Morales (Ingolstadt)
Despite losing 3-1, Ingolstadt claimed a place in at least the promotion playoff, and one point in their final two games will see Morales and his teammates jump to the Bundesliga. In Sunday’s loss to Bohcum, Morales played the first 73 minutes before coming off with his team having just conceded to fall behind.
Jerome Kiesewetter (VfB Stuttgart)
Kiesewetter again did not feature as Stuttgart pulled to within a point of safety, though they still sit in last place in the Bundesliga.
