It’s getting to be a bit dizzying to keep track of the Americans or USMNT-eligible players taking the field in the top leagues of Europe.

Here’s a handy list of most of the top talents expected to play or be in contention to play this weekend in England, Germany, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Turkey, and the Netherlands (plus a few other nations).

Many will have their eyes on Christian Pulisic at Chelsea and Gio Reyna at Borussia Dortmund, but there are now 10 American players plus dual-national Jens Cajuste of Midtjylland and coach Jesse Marsch of Red Bull Salzburg in the UEFA Champions League group stage.


Christian Pulisic could make his first Chelsea start in the No. 10 jersey when Saints visit Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Left back Antonee Robinson is hoping for a second-straight Fulham start alongside center back Tim Ream.
