Christian Pulisic is experiencing a slow start to life in a Chelsea shirt.
Does Christian Pulisic deserve more minutes at Chelsea?
The American has been limited to just three league starts for the Blues so far this term, with manager Frank Lampard preferring Willian and Mason Mount and the returning Callum Hudson-Odoi in attacking midfield, per Transfermarkt.
Pulisic arrived at Stamford Bridge with a hefty £58m price tag so was always going to be scrutinised for his performances on the pitch, and although he has so far seen a lack of game-time, has still chipped in with two assists in the Premier League – four in all competitions (via Transfermarkt).
The 21-year-old’s latest contribution came against Southampton in the Blues’ 4-1 thumping of Southampton at St Mary’s. Pulisic started the match on the sidelines but was introduced in the second-half and set up Michy Batshuayi for the visitors’ fourth of the afternoon with a clever through ball.
Here’s how Chelsea fans reacted to that assist on Twitter:
The Batsman and Captain America. Together again
