[AMERICANS ABROAD] Americans saw little action on the first full weekend of the European season. Of the nine field players on the 2014 U.S. World Cup team in Europe, just two (Mix Diskerud and Alejandro Bedoya) started and two others (Jozy Altidore and Fabian Johnson) made brief appearances as subs. Of the 34 Americans Soccer America is tracking each week in Europe, just 14 played over the weekend. The only American who scored this week was Conor O'Brien with a golazo in his debut for Austrian club Wiener Neustadt.

England ...

Tim Howard
's Everton blew a 2-0 lead over Arsenal at Goodison Park and had to settle for a 2-2 draw when Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud scored goals in the last seven minutes.

For Everton, it marked the second week in a row it had to settle for a 2-2 draw after blowing a late lead. Last week, the Toffees gave up the tying goal at promoted Leicester City in the 86th minute. On Saturday, the goals came in the 83rd and 90th minutes, and Everton would have lost but for some careless Arsenal finishing.

Brad Guzan picked up his second straight shutout as Aston Villa tied Newcastle United, 0-0.

-- After two starts, teenager Emerson Hyndman has sat the next two games for Fulham. He could only watch as the Cottagers fell to Derby County, 5-1, for their fourth loss in four games in the League Championship. The result left German manager Felix Magath, on the verge of being fired, asking for forgiveness from the Fulham fans.

    Perhaps, Jozy and his agent best re-assess the situation with coach Poyet. Could it be that Jozy doesn't do enough work during practice or the coach has more belief in his two other attackers.
