It has been a difficult start to the season for Christian Pulisic in his maiden campaign at Chelsea.
The 21-year-old signed for the Blues back in January of this year, but he spent the remainder of the 2018/19 campaign at the Signal-Iduna Park. Although there was much anticipation at the start of this term, he has started just one of the last six matches for Frank Lampard’s side despite grabbing four assists during the time he has spent on the field.

There had been rumours that he would consider pushing for a move away from Stamford Bridge at the start of next year if he did not receive more playing time, but that speculation appears to be wide of the mark if his latest comments are anything to go by. He told Reuters (via The New York Times), “I’m not just going to throw a fit and give up ever, so if I’m on the bench it doesn’t mean the gaffer doesn’t think I’m a part of the team, I’ve just got to keep pushing and earn my spot.
“Frank likes players who show a lot in training and I just have to continue to do that.”
Will Chelsea finish in the top-four?
This appears to have been music to the ears of the Chelsea supporters, who love his attitude. They have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts, and you can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.
