The goal gave Chelsea a 2-0 lead on the road at Crystal Palace. The Blues eventually held on for a 3-2 win.
Pulisic on pace to go over his goal prop bet
Before the season, oddsmakers had Pulisic’s +/- on goals at 9.5 for the season.
The total was a head-scratcher at the time. Pulisic’s previous high for goals in a season was 5 with Borussia Dortmund. Going over the 9.5 would double his previous high.
Yet here we are. With 4 matches remaining, Pulisic has 8 goals. More impressively, he’s tallied that in just 21 domestic league games.
Pulisic is exceeding all reasonable expectations during his first season at Chelsea. The 21 year-old statistically ranks as one of Chelsea’s best three players and among the better wings in the Premier League.
