After Christian Pulisic was taken off during the USA’s first defeat to rivals Canada in 34 years, Chelsea fans were understandably concerned.
Following the USA’s defeat to Canada, a nation placed 78th in FIFA’s World Rankings, Pulisic left the field visibly distraught after being substituted when the game was 0-0.
The Canadians went on to win the contest 2-0, with Pulisic watching on from the bench as his side succumbed to a defeat from one of their bitter rivals.
As Pulisic’s difficult start to the season continues, the news has now come out that the 21-year-old is suffering from ‘flu-like symptoms’ and could be ineligible to play their next couple of games.
Despite having two assists in five appearances so far this season for the Blues, some Chelsea fans have been calling for youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi to be given the nod over him.
After the USA’s defeat, and hearing the news regarding Pulisic’s health, a few Chelsea fans took to Twitter to voice their concerns.
