CHRISTIAN PULISIC OR CAPTAIN AMERICA?
Christian Pulisic opened up his scoring in Chelsea's Premier League campaign in style with a perfect hatrick - left-foot, right-foot & a header. It had seemed that the £50 million American wonderkid was not making a very impressive start to his Chelsea career with Lampard dropping him for a strong majority of Premier League matches despite needing a winger with Willian and Hudson-Odoi being unavailable. Furthermore, with USA benching their franchise man early in the second half against rivals Canada which lead to viral videos of him crying on the bench, it seemed that all hope was lost.
However, on saturday night we saw less Christian Pulisic and more Captain America. Pulisic didn't just score his first Premier League goal but he managed to put three past Burnley's Pope scoring a perfect hatrick - left foot, right foot and his head. Was the goals amazing? no, far from it. Both shots lacking any technical ability and dribbling in past the keeper and a unaware header that glanced off the back of his head. Regardless of the quality of the goals, we cannot take this special moment from the boy!
