The fans applaud Christian Pulisic as he gets his chance and immediately sets up the Chelsea winner from the bench

Fans celebrate ‘world class’ Christian Pulisic as he FINALLY gets his chance and immediately sent the Chelsea winner off the bench… and the USMNT star has now had more assists than Mason Mount this season despite playing a QUARTER of the minutes

Christian Pulisic was praised by fans after an impressive substitute game on Saturday when the American came off the bench to assist Conor Gallagher’s stunning Chelsea winner against Crystal Palace.

The American winger played just over 10 minutes after missing the game until the 84th minute, but made his mark when he came in from the left and delivered the pass for Gallagher’s decisive goal in the 90th minute.

Pulisic has now started just one of Chelsea’s first seven games but fans were quick to speak of his quality – and questioning that of a teammate – after the neat assist.

“Pulisic plays on his preferred left side and gets an assist straight away. It was never rocket science,” one fan said on Twitter.

“Pulisic should play more. Enough of this back pass style of play. We need players who want to take on defenders. Give me Sterling x Pulisic on both flanks,” said another.

‘Pulisic with more assists in 10 [minutes this game] as a mount in 400 [this season]’ someone else pointed out.

The American has largely contented himself with sub appearances at Stamford Bridge this season but could get a lifeline from new manager Graham Potter.

He started in just 13 league games last season and was used at the front by Tuchel at times without landing a regular role.

“I can only comment on him in terms of how he treated me,” Potter said at a press conference on Friday, hinting at Pulisic’s sometimes frosty relationship with former manager Thomas Tuchel.

“Really positive, he’s an intelligent guy, articulate, knows how to express himself. My conversation with him was good and positive, I will not judge anyone by what happened in the past, I will make up my own mind. Hopefully football will decide.”

The American continues to be kept away from the club with AC Milan reportedly eyeing him as a replacement for Rafael Leao.

However, repeated acts of Saturday’s assist would certainly help his status at Chelsea, at least in the meantime.
