Every Team’s Worst Nightmare Is Now Pulisic Coming Off The Bench, Chelsea Star Scores Again

A week after scoring against Mexico, Pulisic comes off the bench and does it again.

Christian Pulisic is in fine scoring form as the American has scored for club and country in the last eight days. This Pulisic goal vs Leicester during Chelsea’s 3-0 victory was his first Premier League goal since opening day in August.

Pulisic Goal Vs Leicester City

Chelsea had a dominating performance against the Foxes with first-half goals from Antonio Rüdiger and N’Golo Kanté to give the Blues an early lead.

Thomas Tuchel decided to change things up front for his team in the 62nd minute with Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech coming on.

Pulisic was everywhere for Chelsea in his half hour on the field as he nearly scored a chance, set up a goal that was ruled out for offside and scored a goal called back for offside. He finally got his goal courtesy of some great play from Ziyech in the 71st minute.

Tuchel had high praise for Pulisic after the game.

“It is one of his key qualities to arrive exactly like this, very in the box but not only in the box but also in the six-yard box. That is a top quality from him and we need this,” Tuchel said. “He gives us something from repetitive sprints, intensity on and off the ball, but he is at the end of the attacks, he is hungry to score and to arrive in the box

“This is where we need players to be dangerous and to score. Very happy that after a long time where he suffered from Corona virus and injury that he is back and decisive straight away.”
