Christian Pulisic Continues Hot Streak, Breaks Record

Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic might be the best overall player since the restart of the Premier League. It’s either him or Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes.

He once again either scored, assisted or won a penalty that was converted into a score as Chelsea won at Crystal Palace today 3-2. Eden Hazard who? Yes, the 21-year-old American is providing productivity and efficiency on the wing as he’s now scored six away goals in league play this season.

Since the second and final Liverpool-City meeting of the season, the margin has now gone back up to 23, and with five games to go, we’ll see if the Reds nab this record as well. They may not, as manager Jurgen Klopp looks set to keep giving youth players more chances down the stretch here.

Last week, when Chelsea debuted their new home blue kit, emblazoned with the number 3 on the front, the product rollout didn’t go so well. Regardless of what you think of that shirt and its design, the club lost 3-2 to relegation fodder West Ham United while premiering the shirts.

It was just too easy for everyone to make the same “how many goals are you going to concede today?” joke. The 3 is for new shirt sponsor Three UK, a telco giant, but it’s strange seeing a number on both the front and back of a strip. That will take some getting used to, to say the least.
