Lichaj makes first EPL start, Cherundolo hurt

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Eric Lichaj made his first English Premier League start in Aston Villa's 2-1 win over West Bromwich Albion on Saturday that ended its four-game losing streak, while Steve Cherundolo, another U.S. right back, was taken off with a knee injury midway through Hannover 96's 2-1 win over VfB Stuttgart.

Lichaj, the 21-year-old right back out of Chicago, had previously made two EPL appearances off the bench. The win left Villa in 14th place.

All the other Americans in EPL action on Saturday play on teams lower in the standings than Aston Villa.

An update on the status of Cherundolo, the Hannover 96 captain, was not immediately available.
