With that in mind -- and the small matter of the 2022 World Cup on the horizon -- we thought it would be a very good idea to keep a close eye on what these USMNT players are up to week in, week out in the Premier League.

With Brenden Aaronson and Tyler Adams starring for Leeds, goalkeeper Matt Turner yet to make his Premier League debut after joining Arsenal, Christian Pulisic battling for minutes at Chelsea, Chris Richards coming off the bench for Crystal Palace and Fulham duo Tim Ream and Antonee Robinson guaranteed starters as the Cottagers are back in the PL, there are seven USMNT players in the PL this season.

Add in American coach Jesse Marsch guiding his team to a fine start to the season, and there is a lot of positivity around American players and coaches in the Premier League.

Below we focus on how the USMNT stars got on in the Premier League during Week 3 of the season.
