Christian Pulisic Starts vs Norwich City: How’d He Do? (VIDEO)

Posted By Bayne on August 24, 2019

Christian Pulisic earned another start today as Chelsea traveled to play Norwich City, starting for the youngest Chelsea team to field the pitch since 1994.

In an (expectedly) open, attacking match, Pulisic looked more settled than in his starting debut last week.

The 3rd minute saw a field switch where Pulisic cradled the ball in and neatly made a quick dribble and pass that resulted in Abraham’s first goal. In the 17th minute, he threaded a short pass in the box to Mason Mount for an assist of his own. In first half stoppage time, he was brought down a ball with a calm, composed touch, finding Ross Barkley for what could’ve been assist #2. The game went to half tied 2-2 after another Teemu Pukki goal, his fifth of the season.

At 84 minutes of play Pulisic came off for Willian, who is quickly finding himself more and more on the sidelines with apparent fitness problems.
