    Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic continues brilliant run, scores again for Blues vs. Crystal Palace

    Christian Pulisic started for Chelsea on Tuesday. Just like he has in every game since the Premier League returned last month, the American made a big impact. The 21-year-old scored a fantastic goal in the first half against Crystal Palace to give the Blues a two-goal lead (in an eventual 3-2 win). It was another fantastic display for Pulisic, who continues to be Chelsea’s most important player since the return to play.

    He got the ball down the left, cut inside and produced a fantastic left-footed striker that Vicente Guiata had no chance of saving. 

    Take a look:

    It’s a brilliant goal that came after a nifty move. Just watch how quickly he gets a shot off after finding space. It’s pure instinct.

    Pulisic now has eight goals on the Premier League season in 21 games (and another goal in Champions League play). It seems fair to say he officially surpassed all expectations for his first campaign in London.

    His best play has come in the last few weeks. Let’s recap his performances since play resumed last month:

    • Came off the bench against Aston Villa on June 21 and scored in a win.
    • Started against Manchester City on June 25 and and scored in another victory 
    • Started in the FA Cup match at Leicester City
    • Started in the loss at West Ham where he won a penalty kick and a free kick that both led to goals
    • Started in the 3-0 win over Watford and won another penalty kick
    • Scored in the first half at Crystal Palace

    Not bad, huh? 

    Pulisic continues to make the most out of his minutes and play so well that Frank Lampard probably feels obligated to start him. Remember a month ago when it was a surprise to see him in the starting lineup? Now it’s a shock when he isn’t in there.
