'Finally', 'Time to make a point': Some Chelsea fans excited that £150k-a-week man is starting v Everton

Christian Pulisic is in the starting line-up to face Everton in Thursday night’s game – and some Chelsea fans on Twitter are excited to see him get a chance.

The Blues have confirmed their starting XI on Twitter for this evening’s Premier League fixture at home to Everton at Stamford Bridge.

Thomas Tuchel has cleared up some notable absences from the match day squad, but he’s still been able to call upon a very strong line-up for the midweek match.

Chelsea fans celebrate Pulisic news

A selection of Chelsea supporters on social media believe Pulisic has got a massive opportunity against Everton to show what he can do.

The £150,000-a-week attacker is an extremely talented player that’s proven himself on the elite stage. However, persistent injuries have often disrupted his Blues career to stop him from reaching his very best.

Aged 23, there is plenty of time for the American to blossom into an even better player. He is fully aware that competition for places in Tuchel’s squad is fierce, though.

He’s back in the starting line-up against Everton and has to make an impression following his recall.

The speedster has not started any of the club’s last three games across all competitions, so fans are right to shine the spotlight on him with the opportunity he’s been given tonight.
