Chelsea fans would have loved that Christian Pulisic had the confidence to try a move like this against Guyana

Chelsea fans have very little to be excited about for the season ahead. A transfer ban added to the departures of talisman Eden Hazard and manager Maurizio Sarri now means they will go into the new season with a weakened side.

However, there may be some hope. With news of Frank Lampard coming in as new manager, the fans will surely be excited to see their legend back in the dugout however there is still belief that he is inexperienced and not ready for the job.

Enter Christian Pulisic.

A signing during the Sarri-ball season, Christian Pulisic signed for Chelsea during the winter transfer window on January 2, 2019. He was sent back on loan to Dortmund for the remainder of the season and is currently on national duty for USA in the Gold Cup.

A player with low center of gravity and quick acceleration, where have you heard that before Chelsea fans? Pulisic also possesses a strong weak foot which allows him to play on either side of the wings. Pulisic is no direct replacement for Hazard but potentially he can fill up the spot left behind by Hazard.

Still only 20 years old, Pulisic has a lot to learn and grow as a player. Joining the Premier League and learning from experienced wingers such as Pedro and Willian will surely improve the performances and abilities of the American winger and prepare him for life in England.

USA are currently competing in the CONCACAF Gold Cup and demolished Guyana 4-0 in their first match. Pulisic started the game in the left of center midfield and was subbed off in the 63rd minute. USA take on Trinidad and Tobago next on Sunday.

Watch below as Pulisic leaves a Guyana defender puzzled with a slick elastico!

Sky Sports create awkward situation for Chelsea new boy Pulisic

What a start to Pulisic’s life in England. Sky Sports have baffled everyone and angered the Chelsea faithful with their interview of Christian Pulisic, Chelsea’s latest signing.

The American international appeared for his first ever interview as a Chelsea player. Sky Sports have been slammed for the quality of the questions as well as the manner in which they were asked. The questions were ridiculous. The interviewer focused on Eden Hazard and Jadon Sancho and left the American very confused.

Timeline of the 10 minute interview:

  • The very first question was regarding Giroud and his contract extension
  • The questions about the transfer ban and his thoughts put him in a very awkward position
  • The most controversial topic of discussion was Jadon Sancho. Talking about the player who took his place in the squad was really a childish and careless move by the interviewer and the fact that he asked Pulisic 3 questions related to Sancho in a row made matters more embarrassing
  • Comparison to Eden Hazard and asking him if he can replace him
  • Asking him point blank if he can be the “most successful” American player in the Premier League

The interview was truly a shambolic one but Pulisic showed great maturity. He did not fall prey to the interviewer and his irrelevant questions.

He maintained himself well even though the questions spoke about Sancho. 3 Jadon Sancho questions before the 4 minute mark left us wondering if the interview was about him?

The comparison to Hazard and asking if he was here to replace him was utter foolery. Pulisic is here for his own growth and purpose. He will definitely try to emulate Hazard and his impact provided he leaves.

Asking him whether he can at such an early stage was a huge blunder and Sky Sports should be ashamed. Fans have left countless comments on various social media platforms. It has not gone down well with fans in general, not just the fans of the blues.

We hope that Pulisic can get over this interview and bring his creative flair to the Premier League.
