Chelsea’s January signing Christian Pulisic featured for Borussia Dortmund against Tottenham in the Champions League – and many of the Blues fans were impressed with his performance.
The Blues forked out £58million (BBC) to sign the 20-year-old on loan last month, but he was loaned back out to Dortmund for the remainder of the season.
Chelsea got a chance to examine him on Wednesday night in the last 16 of the Champions League at Wembley.
Bundesliga giants Dortmund suffered a 3-0 away defeat to Spurs in the first leg of their knockout tie, as Heung-Min Son, Jan Vertonghen and Fernando Llorente netted goals for the English team.
Pulisic was included in the starting XI for Dortmund and it was just his second start of 2019.
The USA international is a left-winger renowned for his pace and trickery, something he particularly demonstrated in the first-half when his side were on top.
He couldn’t quite replicate the form in the second period and could be regretting a shot he saw saved by goalkeeper Hugo Lloris inside the penalty area.
A selection of Chelsea fans saw the positives from their new signing, who will make his move to Stamford Bridge in the summer.
Here are some of the Chelsea fans on Pulisic’s European display:
He should’ve finished that chance, but Pulisic has played quite well so far. His off the ball movement and pressing abilities will suit our system, and his dribbling abilities are a joy to watch. Just needs to work on his decision making and his finishing.

Thought Pulisic did well, he’s electric when he gets going. Will improve us next season

Pulisic looks a great player. Very direct and skillful, I’d love to see him play with CHO next season especially if Hazard leaves

Pulisic is actually quality. His runs and dribbling are unstoppable and his pressing game is great, one of the reasons why he will do so well in our system.
Wish we could have him now.

Pulisic having a great game for Dortmund thus far. Up against English opposition, a little showcase for CFC fans.

played well. Team needs to look for him in the 2nd half, Aurier can’t contain him. Sancho is class but they’re going to him too much imho

I’d like to see Pulisic play more direct and attack the goal and dribble with the ball to be honest.
