Chelsea fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Christian Pulisic against Newcastle United on Saturday afternoon.

Pulisic, who can operate as a winger or as an attacking midfielder, was in action for Chelsea in their Premier League game against Newcastle at Stamford Bridge in London.

The USA international did not start the match, but the 21-year-old came on as a substitute in the 64th minute for Mason Mount.

Although the youngster missed a good chance to score, the former Borussia Dortmund player looked very lively, was involved in the build-up to the Chelsea goal, and was a problem for the Newcastle defenders.

 

According to WhoScored, Pulisic took one shot which was on target, played one key pass, had a pass accuracy of 88.9%, won two headers, and took 24 touches.

The youngster - who is valued at €70 million (£60.25m) by the CIES Football Observatory - has struggled for playing time for Frank Lampard’s side so far this season, playing just 313 minutes in the Premier League, providing two assists in the process, according to WhoScored.

Chelsea fans were impressed with the display produced by Pulisic and have praised him on Twitter.
