Christian Pulisic made his first start since January in Chelsea’s 2-2 draw against Everton this evening.
The Blues signed off for the international break with a draw against Everton, which now means they’re four games unbeaten.
Graham Potter’s side had to settle for a point in a Premier League thriller at Stamford Bridge.
Joao Felix opened the scoring with his left-footed finish early in the second-half before an equaliser from Abdoulaye Doucoure.
Kai Havertz restored Chelsea’s lead from the penalty spot with his ninth goal of the season. However, substitute Ellis Simms provided Everton with another equaliser, this time enough to earn them a point.
For Pulisic, he played just over an hour before he was substituted off by Potter.
The 24-year-old attacker has missed a large chunk in 2023 with a knee problem, but he’s marked his return from injury recently with a couple of substitute appearances.
He started as part of a front three against Everton alongside Felix and Havertz, who are starting to make key contributions in this XI.
It wasn’t a faultless performance from Pulisic, who huffed and puffed at times. He did have a goal ruled out for offside, though, which was a sensational left-footed finish into the top corner.
You could say the Blues did lose a bit of momentum when he the United States international came off the bench.
