Chelsea fans had plenty to talk about following their 2-1 win against Barcelona in pre-season, but one player seemingly stood out from amongst the pile.
Giroud comes on for Pulisic
— Chelsea FC USA (@ChelseaFCinUSA) July 23, 2019
Summer arrival Christian Pulisic joined the Blues this transfer window following his announcement as a Chelsea player in January from Borussia Dortmund for a reported £58 million according to BBC Sport. After spending the remainder of the season at the Bundesliga club and guiding the US to a runners’ up place in the Gold Cup, supporters of the west London side will have been eager to see the American winger against Barcelona.
As well as winning 2-1 against the La Liga giants (per Chelsea’s official website), Pulisic put in a solid shift for the Blues. In fact, according to Yahoo, he dazzled supporters with his quick feet and intelligent dribbling, and fans took to social media to give their first impressions on the 20-year-old attacker.
Here is what some fans had to say on Twitter…
