'Deserves a proper go': Some Chelsea fans urge Tuchel to start £57m man vs Leicester City

A wave of Chelsea supporters on social media demanded to see Christian Pulisic playing from the off against Leicester City tomorrow.

Pulisic began on the bench for the Blues FA Cup final loss to Leicester City on Saturday.

Thomas Tuchel’s team have a chance to redress their Foxes failure on Tuesday evening in the Premier League.

Blues fans advised their coach to start Pulisic from the first whistle.

Here’s how they reacted on Twitter:

RONALDO NEEDS TO STOP WHINING.

It’s been a confusing campaign for Pulisic up to this point.

The £57.6m (Sky Sports) American was absent in the early stages of the season through a hamstring injury and then missed a few matches thanks to a muscle problem.

He then enjoyed a decent spell in the side under Frank Lampard, which was torn up when Tuchel took over.

After a long period out in the cold, Pulisic is back to playing a key part in Chelsea’s surge for success.

His numbers may tell a different story- six goals and three assists in 40 appearances- but his performances have proven positive.

Compared to the Blues other forwards, his directness and dribbling cannot really be replicated.

If the 22-year-old can remain fit, he could be a big player for Tuchel and his quest to qualify for the Champions League next year.
