USA 2737 43 Americans Abroad - Jan. 31-Feb. 2 32011888 Americans abroad Americans+abroad USA

Meetings between Aston Villa and Everton serve as a proxy battle between Brad Guzan and Tim Howard for most American fans. The top two goalkeepers in Jurgen Klinsmann's pool – Howard, the longtime number one, Guzan, the increasingly threatening number two – indulged those discussions without swaying their merits in Everton's 2-1 victory over Villa on Saturday. Howard conceded on the only shot he faced. Guzan ultimately suffered defeat when the Toffees struck twice in the second half. The conclusion ensures the debate will continue well into the buildup for Brazil.

The meeting between Guzan and Howard at Goodison Park warranted top billing on another busy weekend for Americans Abroad. Read on to learn more about Stoke City's rare victory over Manchester United and Juan Agudelo's first start for Utrecht.

USA 2737 43 Americans Abroad - Jan. 31-Feb. 2 32011889 Danny Williams, Reading midfielder Danny+Williams%2C+Reading+midfielder USA

Williams opened his Reading account with the final goal in a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Millwall on Saturday. The former Hoffenheim midfielder slotted home at the second attempt to cap the triumph with a quarter of an hour to spare. Nigel Adkins' side increased its lead in the final playoff spot to four points with the win.

USA 2737 43 Americans Abroad - Jan. 31-Feb. 2 32011887 Jozy Altidore, Sunderland forward Jozy+Altidore%2C+Sunderland+forward USA

Altidore responded to his critics with a bustling performance in Sunderland's 3-0 victory over Newcastle in the Tyne-Wear derby on Saturday. Fabio Borini and Adam Johnson punished Newcastle's dreadful start at St. James' Park by staking Sunderland to a two-goal lead before halftime. The home side improved after play resumed, but Jack Colback guaranteed the points with the third 10 minutes before the final whistle. The victory moved Gus Poyet's side out of the relegation zone.

USA 2737 43 Americans Abroad - Jan. 31-Feb. 2 32011884 Juan Agudelo, FC Utrecht forward Juan+Agudelo%2C+FC+Utrecht+forward USA

Utrecht manager Jan Wouters handed Agudelo his first start and reaped the benefits in the 1-1 draw with Ajax on Sunday. Agudelo contributed to Utrecht's only goal on the day when he freed Steve de Ridder for the opener with a deft flick behind the Ajax rearguard. Similar displays will aid Utrecht's push up the table and strengthen his case for a work permit with Stoke City during the summer.

USA 2737 43 Americans Abroad - Jan. 31-Feb. 2 32011885 Geoff Cameron, Stoke City defender Geoff+Cameron%2C+Stoke+City+defender USA

Charlie Adam scored either side of halftime to give Stoke City its first league victory over Manchester United since 1984. Adam opened his account with a deflected effort seven minutes before the break. Robin van Persie replied two minutes after the interval, but Adam snatched the points at the Britannia with a fine effort from distance. Cameron once again played all 90 minutes as Mark Hughes' side claimed a vital win in their quest to drag clear of the relegation battle.

Everton staged a second-half revival to claim a 2-1 victory over Villa at Goodison Park on Saturday. Leandro Bacuna opened the scoring after 34 minutes by poking his effort through Howard's legs, but Steven Naismith and Kevin Mirallas replied in the late stages to claim the points. Roberto Martinez's side continued their chase for a Champions League place with the victory, while Villa remained firmly in midtable after the defeat.
