Chelsea ran out comfortable winners in the League Cup, but not all of Frank Lampard’s players impressed their supporters.
Chelsea fans have criticised Christian Pulisic’s display against Grimsby Town last night.
Chelsea ran out 7-1 winners over their lower league opponents last night, as they showed no mercy.
However, the Blues summer signing failed to make much of an impact on the game.
Pulisic didn’t manage to get his first Chelsea goal, and there are now concerns that he isn’t showing enough to start regularly.
Don’t let our madness tonight distract you from the fact that Pulisic dropped a stinker against Grimsby at home ffs “LaMpArD IsN’t TrEaTiNg HiM RiGhT “— ‘ (@CFCDenzel) September 25, 2019
Pulisic was dreadful today btw.— H (@CFCHenryy) September 25, 2019
Poor game from Pulisic! Can see why Frank hasn’t chosen him last few games! #cfc— BD (@BD_13CFC) September 25, 2019
As an American Pulisic is disappointing me. This was Grimsby Town, I was hoping he was going to show out. But he was average again. Fair play for the assist tho— X (@CFCShooter) September 25, 2019
I’ve tried to support Pulisic as much as I can but I can’t anymore. He’s honestly not good enough.— Jay (@CFCJay__) September 25, 2019
Pulisic with another disasterclass but people will stay say he’s better than mount— CΛIROx (@CairoCFC) September 25, 2019
Willian > Pulisic— Jay (@CFCJay__) September 25, 2019
Frank Lampard actually admitted that he had to have stern words with Pulisic at half-time as he wanted more from the Chelsea winger.
Lampard has stressed that the American remains part of his plans already, but he seems to have slipped down the pecking order.
With Willian and Callum Hudson-Odoi both returning to fitness over the course of the season so far, Chelsea are now well stocked for options on the wings.
And it appears that Pulisic still has some way to go before he breaks into Lampard’s starting line-up on a regular basis.
