Pulisic Shows Why Chelsea Fans Are Excited To Have Him In Blue With Two Goals
USMNT and Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic put on a master class in the English side's 5-3 friendly win against RB Salzburg on Wednesday, picking up two goals and winning a penalty, which Ross Barkley scored. All of that was within the first thirty minutes of play.
Both of Pulisic's goals were perfectly timed runs behind the backline and smart finishes.

While it is a friendly and teams are still not to full fitness, the playmaking ability and goal-scoring threat showed by Pulisic in this match are something we could very well be seeing on the regular with Chelsea. Especially if his relationship with Barkley keeps blossoming.
