Captain america is back

Christian Pulisic was instrumental in Chelsea's win against Crystal Palace, with the American scoring a double, reflecting his good form in recent weeks.


It has not been an easy season for Christian Pulisic at Chelsea. The injuries, the explosion of Mason Mount, along with the changes of coach (first with Frank Lampard and now with Thomas Tuchel), have turned the 2020-21 course into a real roller coaster for the American. So much so that, among other things, he has lost up to a total of 15 games this season. Figures that have made it impossible at all times to consolidate a minimum of regularity.

However, after so long, Pulisic seems to see the light at the end of the tunnel. His double in Chelsea's win at Crystal Palace confirms his good form, perhaps the best of the season. In addition, he gave four key passes during the 90 'he played. And it is that, with those two scored, there are four that he registers in his last four games. The first of them, precisely, with the United States team. Thus, with the vitola of 'Captain America', the '10' of the blues returned from the FIFA break with morale through the roof, scoring another target in the defeat against West Brom.

But, beyond the figures (five goals and two assists in the season), they are the sensations. Finer, electric, participatory and, above all, healthy. Pulisic has already shown throughout last season that he can play a fundamental role at Chelsea. Therefore, the American has returned at the key moment of the season, with the blues at stake to enter the next Champions League, in addition to having in his hand the ticket to the semifinals of the maximum continental competition.Key months for his future

The truth is that these months are going to be crucial in determining Christian Pulisic's future at Chelsea. It should be remembered that the blues made a powerful economic investment in the American, disbursing about 65 million euros to Borussia Dortmund, where he exploded in the Bundesliga with masterful performances.

That catapulted him to the Premier League where, however, he has never reached the expected fullness. Even the little continuity during this season in the face of so many inconveniences placed him on the starting ramp, with Manchester United being one of the most interested. Now the movie seems to have changed. The 'Captain America' has awakened from his lethargy to say "Here I am" and become that decisive piece for which Chelsea bet.
