Lille 1-2 Chelsea, player notes: Bah Gawd that the Champions League anthem is the music of Pulisic!


Pulisic has struggled a bit for consistency, playing time and fitness at various times this season (and his time at Chelsea in general, for that matter), but he’s started six of our last eight in all competitions – and mostly in his preferred positions up front, either on the wing or a bit more in the middle like in (the first half) this one. It unsurprisingly led to some of his best performances of the entire season, including a hugely important goal to level things up on the night just before half-time.

Pulisic also played very well in the first leg against Lille (and also scored), but this is his first WAGNH Man of the Match award of the whole season. And it’s his first since the first leg of Champions League quarter-finals last season, against FC Porto. Over the last two seasons, he has registered 8 goals and 3 assists in 42 Premier League appearances and 4 goals and 3 assists in 15 Champions League appearances.

So here is. This anthem? Well damn, it’s his music!

A Captain objective for the legendary Captain. Appearance number 463.

“He lives every day what it takes to be captain of Chelsea”

Thomas Tuchel

If in doubt, vote for Thiago Silva.
