Chelsea fans want Christian Pulisic recalled against Arsenal
Chelsea travel to Arsenal on Sunday afternoon in the Premier League – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter have demanded that Christian Pulisic is recalled to the team.
The Blues go to the Emirates Stadium in need of a response after losing 2-0 at home to Southampton on Boxing Day.
Frank Lampard’s side once again struggled at Stamford Bridge, but they go into the Arsenal fixture knowing they have been a lot more successful on the road this season.
Pulisic has not started either of the last two games for Chelsea and was an unused substitute in the victory against Tottenham.
The American has had a decent debut season in English football despite his recent absence, scoring six goals and supplying six assists in 22 games across all competitions.
He is a skilful winger that should be able to exploit a vulnerable Arsenal defence if he gets the nod against them, but has to get back into favour with Lampard.
A selection of Chelsea supporters on social media insist that this weekend is a great time to recall Pulisic.
It would make sense with such a busy fixture schedule to rotate and the American wide man has shown he can be a great threat with his pace and skill.
Here are some Chelsea fans on Pulisic:
This man must start against Arsenal. He’s fantastic in my opinion! It baffles me how he has been dropped recently. Pulisic is going to be one of the best in the PL and Frank needs to see it soon. Technically gifted, excellent movement on the ball and a phenomenal finisher. #CFC pic.twitter.com/YkEvuYCCJj

I do think Pulisic should start, not sure about Batshauyi, he’s not as good on the ball as Tammy

Puli has to start for me

Need Pulisic. Only Willian can remotely beat people 1v1 of your line-up. I think Tottenham game was slightly overrated because there were actually relatively few offensive chances and those were mostly the result of poor D.

Should be a back 4
Christensen definitely should start
Jorginho > Kante
Pulisic should definitely start
