A section of Chelsea fans were delighted with Christian Pulisic’s display during the club’s 2-1 win over Barcelona in a pre-season friendly on Tuesday.
The 20-year-old was handed with his maiden non-competitive start for the Blues against the Blaugrana, and he managed to last for an hour before being replaced by Olivier Giroud.
Pulisic, who featured on the left side of the attack, was impressive with his intelligent dribbling and quick feet and he managed to have three shots, and could have easily found the net on another day.
Here are some of the reactions on Twitter towards his performance….
Good game for him, start of something special

Great start for him definitely getting 15+ goal contributions this season

His pace will give defenders fits

Pulisic struggled with a few injury concerns with Borussia Dortmund last term and that saw his gametime reduced with the emergence of Jadon Sancho at the Bundesliga outfit.
However, he has been rejuvenated this summer and has continued his good form from the national team with a couple of impressive displays on the left wing for the Blues.
Still, he needs to find the cutting edge within the opposition box in order to help the Blues overcome the departure of Eden Hazard, who was regularly involved in scoring and creating goals.
Chelsea ended their pre-season tour of Japan on a high with a 2-1 victory over Barcelona. Tammy Abraham and Ross Barkley found the net in either half for the Blues while Ivan Rakitic bagged a late consolation for the Blaugrana.
