Geoff Cameron (Stoke City)
Once again, Cameron was an unused substitute for Stoke in a scoreless draw with Liverpool. The Potters are in 19th place, sitting three points off safety with two games to go, and they’ll need help from those sides just ahead of them if they’re going to find a way to survive the drop.
Emerson Hyndman (Bournemouth)
Hyndman didn’t appear for any of Bournemouth’s teams this week. The Cherries sit in 12th in the Premier League table and can make top-flight arrangements for next season.
Danny Williams (Huddersfield)
Williams fractured his fibula in training in mid-March and will be out for the rest of the season. Huddersfield, who lost 2-0 to Everton this weekend, are in 16th place, just three points out of danger, and
DeAndre Yedlin (Newcastle United)
Yedlin played a quiet 90 minutes as Newcastle lost a second EPL game in a row, falling 1-0 to last-place West Brom. The 24-year-old couldn’t have done anything to prevent West Brom’s Matt Phillips from scoring the game’s only goal on the stroke of halftime, but he also didn’t make much of an impact in the contest. Yedlin completed 83 percent of his passes and tallied one key pass, and he also recorded three interceptions and one successful dribble. However, his efforts weren’t enough. Newcastle are in 10th place and in no danger of relegation, but they’ll hope to break out of their modest slump and enter the summer with some momentum over their final three matches.
Gedion Zelalem (Arsenal)
Zelalem is recovering from a torn ACL suffered at the U-20 World Cup in May. Initial estimates had him missing up to nine months. He looks to be on the road to recovery, and he has returned to training for Arsenal. However, Zelalem recently confirmed via social media that he won’t play in any official matches until next season begins.
Cameron Carter-Vickers (Ipswich Town, on loan from Tottenham Hotspur)
Due to an ankle injury picked up in training on Thursday, Carter-Vickers was absent from the Ipswich side that scored four goals in the final 20 minutes to ease past Reading 4-0. The injury doesn’t appear to be serious, but it’s unclear whether or not CCV will be able to suit up in Ipswich’s season finale, which is Sunday against Middlesbrough. The Tractor Boys sit in 13th place in the division and will again play Championship football next year.
Luca de la Torre (Fulham)
De la Torre returned to the bench for Fulham’s senior squad this week, but he did not play in their 2-1 win over Sunderland.
Tim Ream (Fulham)
Ream did appear for Fulham, playing 90 eventful minutes and putting together a decent overall performance as the Cottagers extended their Championship unbeaten run to 23 games. The defender had a finished with a game-high 10 clearances, connected on 57 of 65 passes, and made two interceptions, tackles, and successful dribbles. However, he could have closed down Joel Asoro a bit quicker before the young striker fired through Ream’s legs to open the scoring in the first half, and he was lucky not to be penalized for a clumsy tackle inside of the penalty area with Fulham still down a goal. Almost immediately after that incident, Fulham drew level, and they went on their way to earning another vital win in what’s turned into a memorable season. With one game left, the Cottagers are in third place; if they can manage to better Cardiff’s result Sunday — Fulham visit Birmingham and Cardiff host Reading — they’ll earn automatic promotion.
Lynden Gooch (Sunderland)
Gooch missed out on Sunderland’s loss to Fulham with a leg injury. The loss to Fulham means the Black Cats will finish the season at the bottom of the table.
Eric Lichaj (Nottingham Forest)
Making his second start in a row, Lichaj had a solid, if unspectacular, game as Forest beat Barnsley 3-0 on Tuesday. Playing as a right back, Lichaj racked up five clearances and a team-high four tackles, but he was mostly kept quiet otherwise, completing just 66 percent of his pass attempts. Most importantly, however, he helped Forest keep a clean sheet and earn three points. Despite that, the defender was back amongst the substitutes on the weekend and did not make his way into the field of play as Forest drew Bristol City 0-0. Forest will finish their season in the bottom half of the Championship table, but they’ll play second-division football again next year for the 11th straight campaign.
Gboly Ariyibi (Nottingham Forest)
Ariyibi started and played 90 minutes as Forest’s U-23 side snuck into the Professional Development League playoffs thanks to a 4-0 win over Huddersfield. They’ll face Crystal Palace in the first game of the playoffs on Tuesday.
Antonee Robinson (Bolton, on loan from Everton)
Robinson was an unused substitute in Bolton’s 2-0 loss to Burton. The defeat was a damaging one for the Trotters, who dropped below Burton and sit in 23rd place ahead of the final weekend of the season. In order to survive the drop, Bolton must beat Forest and hope Burton and Barnsley lose or draw against Preston and Derby, respectively.
Duane Holmes (Scunthorpe United)
Like last week, Holmes played an important role (but wasn’t involved in any goals) in a pair of vital Scunthorpe wins. The midfielder was at the heart of the Iron attack, creating a number of chances for teammates and seeing one good late opportunity saved, but he didn’t score in Scunthorpe’s 2-0 win over Milton Keynes Dons. Then, on Tuesday, he again played a similar part, serving as an effective decoy on Scunthorpe’s first goal and threatening but not scoring in an eventual 2-0 victory, this one a critical win over Plymouth that solidifies Scunthorpe’s spot in the promotion playoffs.
John Anthony Brooks (Wolfsburg)
A week after returning to the starting lineup, Brooks was an unused substitute as Wolfsburg suffered a potentially disastrous loss, falling 3-1 at home against Hamburg to slip into 16th place. With two games left, Hamburg now trail Wolfsburg by just two points in the battle for Bundesliga survival.
Timmy Chandler (Eintracht Frankfurt)
Chandler was also an unused substitute, watching on as his side lost 4-1 to champions Bayern Munich. Eintracht’s Champions League dreams have effectively faded (they’re six points back of fourth place and sit in seventh), but they remain firmly in the hunt for a Europa League berth (and still have a DfB-Pokal final to come against Bayern).
Aron Johannsson (Werder Bremen)
Johannsson was a late scratch from the Bremen lineup after picking up a knock in training late in the week. Bremen played Dortmund to a 1-1 draw without him. They sit in 12th place and have secured their Bundesliga status for another season.
Fabian Johnson (Borussia Monchengladbach)
Johnson remains sidelined for Monchengladbach, who drew with Schalke 1-1. Gladbach are in ninth place and still have an outside chance at clinching a Europa League place.
Weston McKennie (Schalke)
In that 1-1 draw with Johnson’s Gladbach, McKennie was Schalke’s first sub, coming on with his side down a man and both goals already scored in the 64th minute. He recorded two interceptions and a clearance in his time on the pitch. With both Nabil Bentaleb and Max Meyer suspended (the former for his red card Saturday, the latter for a dispute with the club brass), McKennie has a good chance of finding his name in the starting lineup this coming weekend as second-place Schalke try to officially nail down their spot in next season’s Champions League.
Christian Pulisic (Borussia Dortmund)
Pulisic had a noticeably quiet afternoon in Dortmund’s aforementioned draw with Bremen. His most noteworthy action was getting out of the way of Marco Reus’ 19th-minute strike which gave Dortmund the lead. Otherwise, Pulisic did very little, with just one successful take on, one tackle, and one interception, which led to his withdrawal on 61 minutes. Still, like their rivals from Schalke, Dortmund can officially lock up a berth in the Champions League with a win this weekend.
Caleb Stanko (SC Freiburg)
There’s no update on Stanko’s knee injury, but it did require surgery, so he will most likely be sitting for a good chunk, if not all, of the rest of the season.
Bobby Wood (Hamburg)
Finally, Wood got himself back onto the scoresheet for Hamburg this weekend. Granted, it was a penalty, but that won’t matter much to the Hawaiian striker, whose 43rd-minute spot kick — his first club goal since August — broke a scoreless deadlock and set the stage for a critical 3-1 win for Hamburg. Wood was heavily involved in Hamburg’s attack throughout the first half, missing with one early chance and setting up another decent opportunity before sending the keeper the wrong way from the spot to put Hamburg in front. He then played a major part in their second
Terrence Boyd (Darmstadt)
Boyd again came on as a substitute for Darmstadt, entering in the 84th minute with his side up 3-0 in a game it would win 3-1 against Union Berlin. After replacing two-goal scorer Felix Platte, Boyd completed four of four passes (one key pass) and did little else of note. Darmstadt sit in 17th, two points from safety with two games left.
McKinze Gaines (Darmstadt)
Gaines did not play in Darmstadt’s win.
Jann George (Jahn Regensburg)
George was the star of what might have been Regensburg’s last stand in the promotion race, scoring their only goal in a 4-1 defeat to Duisburg. With his side down 1-0 in the 58th minute, George played a one-two outside of the penalty area and blasted a ferocious left-footed strike that flew past the Duisburg goalkeeper. It was a stunning goal, but the momentum didn’t last long as Duisburg took the lead right back a minute later and extended it from there. George kept scrapping and hit the woodwork late, but the game had been decided by that time. It was his third goal in three games, so the German-American has some momentum on an individual basis, but Regensburg are now five points back of third place Holstein Kiel with two games remaining and will almost certainly play 2. Bundesliga football again next season.
Ken Gipson (Sandhausen)
Gipson suffered a broken leg in training over Sandhausen’s winter break during a collision with a teammate. He is not expected to play again this season.
Andrew Wooten (Sandhausen)
Wooten came onto the pitch in the 53rd minute but didn’t make much of an impact in a 2-0 loss to Heidenheim. He completed 17 of 22 passes but failed to record a shot or attempt a dribble. Sandhausen, who are in eighth, will be in the second tier again next season.
Haji Wright (Sandhausen, on loan from Schalke)
Wright was not in the 18-man roster for Sandhausen.
Julian Green (Greuther Fuerth, on loan from Stuttgart)
Green was an active figure for Fuerth, but he couldn’t make a difference in the outcome as his side was hammered 3-0 by St. Pauli. Playing in a center attacking midfield role, Green tallied four shots (just one on target though) and passed at 89 percent, but he also was successful on just one of six attempted dribbles. The loss represents a huge missed opportunity for Fuerth, who fell back into a relegation playoff spot, one point from safety.
Jerome Kiesewetter (Fortuna Dusseldorf)
Kiesewetter did not make the Dusseldorf squad. Fortuna beat Dynamo Dresden to clinch automatic promotion and maintain their two-point edge atop the table.
Alfredo Morales (Ingolstadt)
Morales went 70 minutes for Ingolstadt, exiting with a 3-1 deficit in an eventual 5-1 defeat to Holstein Kiel. The midfielder lined up a bit further forward than usual, but he didn’t make too much of a dent in the contest. Morales had one shot on target, one blocked, one tackle, and one dribble while passing at 83 percent, but he wasn’t involved in his side’s lone goal and came off just after Ingolstadt allowed a third goal. Ninth-place Ingolstadt are locked into the second division for another season.
Ethan Horvath (Club Brugge, Jupiler League)
Horvath was an unused substitute as Bruges drew 1-1 with Genk.
Matt Miazga (Vitesse, on loan from Chelsea, Eredivisie)
Miazga played 79 minutes in a 5-0 throttling of relegated Twente. The center back came out with his side up 4-0, and there’s no mention of an injury, so it’s likely that the move was made just to get someone else minutes late in the season. In his time on the pitch, the 22-year-old tallied three clearances, a tackle, a successful dribble, and a key pass while completing a cool 88 percent of his attempts. With one game left in their season, Vitesse have locked up a Europa League playoff spot.
Shaquell Moore (Levante, La Liga)
Moore did not appear for Levante at any level this week.
Andrija Novakovich (SC Telstar, on loan from Reading, Eerste Divisie)
It was a down week for Novakovic as Telstar were shut out in a 1-0 loss to Cambuur. It was the final game of the season, and their sixth-place finish was good enough for qualification to the second round of the promotion playoffs and a two-legged tie with De Graafschap. Should they triumph, they would have to beat one more opponent to get promoted.
Erik Palmer-Brown (KV Kortrijk, on loan from Manchester City, Jupiler League)
Palmer-Brown started again for Kortrijk, playing 90 minutes at center back in a 2-1 win over Lierse. Palmer-Brown and his defense did enough to get the victory; Kortrijk are four points behind Zulte Waregem in the Europa League playoffs. They need to eclipse them, stay in first in their group, and then win a one-off semifinal and final to qualify.
Keaton Parks (Benfica, Primeira Liga)
Parks went 90 minutes for Benfica B in a 1-0 loss to Vitoria B.
Desevio Payne (Excelsior Rotterdam, Eredivisie)
Payne is still recovering from an abdominal injury that kept him out for the end of 2017. He still hasn’t returned to the Excelsior side.
Kenny Saief (Anderlecht, on loan from Gent, Jupiler League)
Saief continues to be a mainstay in the Anderlecht lineup, but he didn’t complete this weekend’s game, going 82 minutes and picking up a yellow card along the way. He didn’t make the scoresheet, but Anderlecht did win 3-1 against Charleroi and have stayed in second in the Belgian Championship playoff table, five points behind Brugge. That gap will be tough to make up, but Anderlecht still sit in the second UCL spot.
Jordan Siebatcheu (Reims, Ligue 2)
Siebatcheu appeared twice for Reims this week but didn’t make a noticeable impact on either contest as they beat Niort 3-1 and lost to Le Havre 1-0. Still, the striker played all 180 minutes despite the games being just three days apart as Reims continue their impressive Ligue 2 run. With two games left, they have easily secured the title and promotion, leading the division by 15 points.
Maki Tall (Tours, Ligue 2)
Tall didn’t appear for last-place Tours this week, who lost to Nancy and drew Quevilly Rouen.
Juan Pablo Torres (Sporting Lokeren, Jupiler League)
Torres remains on the outside of the Lokeren lineup as they beat Eupen 2-0. Lokeren lead their Europa League playoff group but will need to follow a similar pattern to Kortrijk to qualify.
Timothy Weah (PSG, Ligue 1)
Weah remains just on the outside of the PSG lineup, sitting on the bench but not being selected as a sub in a 2-2 draw with Guingamp.
Jonathan Klinsmann (Hertha Berlin, Bundesliga)
Klinsmann did not appear for Hertha II this week.
Josh Sargent (Werder Bremen, Bundesliga)
Likewise, Sargent did not appear for Bremen’s reserves.
Isaiah Young (Werder Bremen, Bundesliga)
Young didn’t appear either for Bremen II but did make the bench, though he went as an unused sub.
Brady Scott (FC Koln, Bundesliga)
Scott also rode the bench this week, twice being available but not seeing the pitch for Koln II.
Nick Taitague (Schalke, Bundesliga)
Taitague was not active for Schalke U-19s this week.
Timothy Tillman (Bayern Munich, Bundesliga)
Tillman appeared twice for Bayern II but did not score any of their seven goals this week. He did play 170 out of 180 minutes.
Marlon Fossey (Fulham, Championship)
Fulham’s youth teams have concluded their seasons.
Matthew Olosunde (Manchester United, Premier League)
United’s youth teams have concluded their seasons.
Kyle Scott (Chelsea, Premier League)
Scott didn’t appear for any of Chelsea’s squads this week.
Mukwelle Akale (Villarreal, La Liga)
It’s unclear if Villarreal appeared for Villarreal’s C team, but he did not play for their reserve or senior sides.
Joshua Perez (Livorno Calcio, Lega Pro, on loan from Fiorentina)
Perez was an unused substitute in Livorno’s 1-1 draw with Carrarese which secured promotion to the Serie B.
