Not Even A New American Owner And Pulisic Going The Full 90 Could Stop Chelsea’s Slide

The new American owner was at Stamford Bridge watching. Christian Pulisic played the full 90 for the first time since March and had a lovely assist. Romelu Lukaku scored a brace for just the second time all season and first since September.

Pulisic Not Getting Enough Minutes With Chelsea — Could Seek A Summer Transfer To Juventus

Christian Pulisic needs to get out of Chelsea. Simple as that. 

The American star made an appearance as a substitute during Chelsea’s Sunday defeat to Everton. This was his ninth appearance off the bench in the Premier League this season and the fifth in a row.

The lack of playing time has helped spark Pulisic Juventus transfer rumors.
