Tottenham fans on Twitter gutted to see Pulisic won’t play against them in return leg

Tottenham fans on Twitter gutted to see Pulisic won’t play against them in return leg

Tottenham fans will still be buzzing that they managed to overcome Borussia Dortmund 3-0 last week at Wembley in their Champions League round of 16. However, there is still work to be done as they face a tough second leg away in Germany. For that clash, though, the young American winger Christian Pulisic will be unavailable.

The news of Pulisic’s absence comes from football.london, and it will be news that won’t go down well with the Lilywhites given how ineffective the American was when the two sides faced last week. Both Jan Vertonghen and Serge Aurier were easily able to deal with the Bundesliga star, and now it looks like the Lilyhwites will have to deal with an entirely different threat when they travel to Germany.

Pulisic was one of the key men who was being looked at as this Champions League tie got closer and closer, especially when the news broke that Marco Reus would be unavailable for the first leg. Now, though, the Lilywhites will have an entirely different threat to try and contain as Marco Reus has all of the qualities to put them to the sword, something Pulisic doesn’t seem capable of.

The Lilywhites would much rather see Pulisic turning out against them in the next leg after his performance at Wembley and will be gutted if Reus is drafted in to replace him.
