How did Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic perform against Tottenham?
Chelsea fans may have got the chance to watch their January signing Christian Pulisic in action on Tuesday, as he came on as a substitute in the Champions League defeat to Tottenham.
The 20-year-old joined the Blues for £58million (BBC) in January from Borussia Dortmund and was loaned straight back out to the German club for the rest of the season.
He featured in the second-half for a Dortmund team that were knocked out of the Champions League in the last-16 by the Premier League outfit.
Dortmund found themselves 1-0 down on the night due to Harry Kane’s goal and 4-0 on aggregate before Pulisic was introduced in the 62nd minute.
But how did the USA international cope during his brief cameo against English opposition?
Chelsea’s loanee came on during a situation where the contest was completely over and the intensity had slowed down, but did have a couple of eye-catching moments still.
The electric winger had a great opportunity in the box to score, but unfortunately put his header over the bar and that may be down to match sharpness.
Meanwhile, he made a great defensive block to highlight he does track back and apart from that it was difficult to judge him in a depleted Dortmund side.
Pulisic showed glimpses of his dribbling and quality during the first leg, but ultimately end product proved an issue.
It’s certainly not the time for Chelsea fans to panic or feel they have wasted their money, as he’s a rising talent that could have a bright future.
He’s not a regular starter right now for the Bundesliga club and that’s halted his momentum, but hopefully from a Chelsea perspective he can try end the season in good fashion before his summer switch to Stamford Bridge.
