Christian Pulisic, a Chelsea attacker, is a favorite among his teammates, according to Pat Nevin.
On Saturday, October 8, the Blues defeated Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-0 in the Premier League thanks to a goal from Pulisic. For Graham Potter’s team, the American scored the second goal of the contest.
With a looping header from a Mason Mount cross, Kai Havertz gave the Blues the lead. The second goal was scored by Pulisic, and Mount again was the creator. In the 89th minute, Armando Broja scored to give the Blues a lead.
Nevin claimed that Pulisic enjoys high levels of support from his teammates because after scoring, all but the goalkeeper ran to join the former Borussia Dortmund player in celebration. He stated the following to BBC Radio 5 Live, according to thechelseachronicle:
What stood out the most was how every single Chelsea player—aside from the goalkeeper—ran straight to the corner to swarm over Pulisic and yell, “We’re with you, mate.” That goal is very well-liked around here, and he is a very well-liked player.
The 24-year-old has now contributed one assist and one goal to the Blues’ 10 victories so far this season.
With 16 points from 8 games, Graham Potter’s team is currently fourth in the standings.
Graham Potter, the Blues’ head coach, had to make seven adjustments to the squad that defeated AC Milan 3-0 on October 6 in the UEFA Champions League.
The starting lineup for the match omitted Thiago Silva, Ben Chilwell, Reece James, Mateo Kovacic, Raheem Sterling, Wesley Fofana, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Here is what Potter had to say regarding his team’s depth:
“This is a good group of players, which is a credit to them. With only 11 players, we can’t win, and I don’t believe it’s proper to play the remaining players after the original 11 have fallen or become injured. That is not good for the dynamics of the group. However, I am aware that if we lose today, you will be asking me why I didn’t play Aubameyang. That is just the way things are.
