Americans Abroad Weekend Preview: Pulisic, Morales, and more

Christian Pulisic will try to snap a five-match pointless drought this weekend for Chelsea in a highly-anticipated London Derby against Tottenham.

Pulisic, who has five goals and two assists in the Premier League this season, has continued to earn minutes for Frank Lampard’s side. The 21-year-old’s last goal for the Blues came on Nov. 27th in the UEFA Champions League, as Chelsea advanced in the competition. A test against Jose Mourinho’s Spurs will be tough for the Blues who lost 1-0 last weekend against Bournemouth. With the matches coming thick and fast for every Premier League side, Pulisic will have to make the most of every appearance in order to remain in the starting lineup.

Elsewhere, Alfredo Morales and Fortuna Dusseldorf try to rebound from a shutout league loss in midweek. John Brooks and Wolfsburg travel to Bayern Munich, while Tyler Adams could return for RB Leipzig this weekend. DeAndre Yedlin and Newcastle United face Crystal Palace in Premier League play, Antonee Robinson and Wigan Athletic take on Blackburn Rovers, and Sergino Dest and Ajax face ADO Den Haag.

  1. And back to the bench for Pulisic. He’s played well, but w/ little end result recently and…. so goes the constant pressure of life for a player in the top-flight. When your team has numerous high quality options and likely more on the way- you simply need to be uber consistent w/ end results- assists and goals. Chelsea looked good on the day with him on the bench. Good for him and his development if he wants to be top of the top. Keep fighting CP!
