Christian Pulisic – Man to Watch Out for Next Season
Many players take a season or two before settling into the life of England. But Christian Pulisic has shown how amazing is he in the debut season only. The man who replaced Eden Hazard has been seen on the bench a few times, but this can be one of the masterstrokes from Frank Lampard as he has helped in the American superstar to settle quickly into the new team.
Today, he went past four of Liverpool’s men and assisted Tammy Abraham with a delightful cross. It was a mesmerizing display of dribbling skills, and many would have got a hint of Lionel Messi in those tricks. After 10 minutes, he showcased exemplary power by shooting the third goal emphatically for Chelsea and give hope for an extraordinary comeback. With 9 goals and 6 assists in his very first season, big things are coming for the Blues next season.
No Defense Day?
When a game witnesses eight goals, it has to be an exciting match to watch for the fans. But can we hide under the fact that Chelsea’s defense is in shambles? No other side in Premier League has conceded more goals away from home this season. This has to be rectified in the next transfer window for a team looking to challenge for top-four spots or the Premier League title. Also, Frank Lampard’s men have conceded second-most goals this season from corners, and are only behind the relegated side Norwich City. They are investing heavily in attack and getting some serious talents. Right now, it is more important that Frank Lampard get someone at the back who can take real control.
