United States men’s national team and Fulham left back Antonee Robinson provided one of the more creative assists we’ve seen during his side’s 2-2 draw with Burnley.
With Fulham leading 1-0 early in the first half, Robinson helped double the lead with a no-look, first-timed and backward assist over the top to Rodrigo Muniz.

Robinson has been one of Fulham’s best players this season as this was his fifth assist of the campaign. The American star has caught the attention of Liverpool and could be set for a big transfer this summer.
Another highlight for the USMNT was center back Tim Ream going the full 90 minutes in an EPL game for the first time since Dec. 3. Ream had been sidelined with a calf issue but is now back into the starting XI.
Ream won’t remember Saturday's game too fondly as he was a fraction of second too late to prevent Burnley’s equalizing goal in the 91st minute.

The result sees Fulham remain in the middle of the table in 12th and a seven-point cushion between them and the relegation zone.
