Pulisic has had his ups and downs at Chelsea.
Alexi Lalas believes that Christian Pulisic is too good forChelsea
and that his talent is being wasted at the club.
The USA national team star was transferred to Chelsea after shining in Borussia Dortmund, but successive injuries in West London prevented him from growing, although he was able to shine significantly every time he was ready. The high cost of signing him has led to a lot of criticism from Chelsea over the transfer.
Now the former USMNT star criticizing Chelsea's performance, claimed that Pulisic is wasted at Stamford Bridge.
“This is Chelsea with all the talent they have and all the money they have spent.
“I’ll say it right now, Christian Pulisic is too good for this Chelsea team.
“His talents are being wasted right now at Chelsea, with this Chelsea team that they have.”
“I thought Christian Pulisic was incredible.
He added on Pulisic performance against City
: “I know at times it looked like he was trying to do everything himself by taking on two and three players at a time, his quickness, his one-two touches, all of that kind of stuff.
“If you watch that game [against City], a game in which Chelsea got completely destroyed, I’m hard-pressed to find anybody who wouldn't watch that game and single out Christian Pulisic as a bright spot.
“That’s not always the case when Christian Pulisic plays, but in this game I actually appreciated and respected the fact he constantly went searching for the ball. He was constantly doing what he does so well, which is take players on.
“At times it was two, three players, at times ultimately that last guy would nick the ball, but it wasn’t as if he had options up there so you’d say, ‘why’s he trying to do everything himself’ or, ‘he’s doing too much’.
“Here’s the problem. The way we’re talking about this performance from Christian Pulisic is of a player who shines despite the fact that he is not playing with the best players, or is playing against vastly superior opposition and still being able to show.”
