Chelsea returns to Premier League play on Saturday with Christian Pulisic aiming to play a vital role against Southampton.
The U.S. Men’s National Team star made his season debut in a 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace prior to the international break, playing the final nine minutes at Stamford Bridge. Pulisic was a top performer for Chelsea last season in Frank Lampard’s first season at the helm and the American will look to do more of the same as Chelsea pushes for an EPL title. The 21-year-old came off the bench in both matches against the Saints last season and will now look to score his first goal against the South Coast club.
Elsewhere, Tyler Adams and RB Leipzig face Augsburg in Bundesliga play while Tim Ream and Antonee Robinson will both look to start for Fulham at Sheffield United. Timothy Weah and Lille take on Lens in a tough test in Ligue 1. Matt Miazga aims to make his debut for Anderlecht after arriving on loan from Chelsea. Giovanni Reyna and Borussia Dortmund look to keep pace with Bayern Munich in the early race in the Bundesliga.
