Tyler Adams having "an amazing time" at RB Leipzig after grabbing first assist

Unbeaten in the Bundesliga so far and with a first assist to his name now too, it is safe to say RB Leipzig's USA international Tyler Adams is enjoying life in Germany.

The 19-year-old made his fourth league appearance against VfB Stuttgart on Matchday 22, and third start since joining Ralf Rangnick's ensemble from the New York Red Bulls over the winter. He put in another typically dynamic display, making more sprints (39) than anyone else on the pitch and winning 13 tackles, a figure bettered only by team-mate Yussuf Poulsen (14).

Furthermore, it was Adams' measured slide-rule pass that set up Poulsen for Leipzig's decisive third goal in a 3-1 win, giving the nine-time international his first assist.

Understandably, then, he is delighted with the way things have been going in Lower Saxony. "It's been an amazing time so far that I've been here," Adams told bundesliga.com on Saturday. "Everybody's helped me along the way. Today was one of those games where even though I didn't feel like I was at my best, the guys round me helped and kept my confidence going so I was able to grab an assist, which was nice."

The win keeps Leipzig on course for a top-four finish, as well as extending Adams' personal record since moving to the Bundesliga: the central midfielder has not lost a single game in which he has been on the pitch, winning three and drawing one in the league, as well as winning another in the DFB Cup.
