The last time Christian Pulisic faced Arsenal, he scored a goal in the FA Cup Final. Five months later, Pulisic will look to find the net again as he looks to build some momentum heading into the new year.
The U.S. Men’s National Team star was lively in Chelsea’s 3-0 win over West Ham on Monday, despite not scoring or adding an assist. Pulisic looks to be back to full fitness for Frank Lampard’s side after fighting off a nagging hamstring injury in the early stages of the new season. Pulisic will now look to get after a slumping Arsenal side, who have not won in Premier League play since November 1st.
Elsewhere, Antonee Robinson and Fulham host Southampton while DeAndre Yedlin and Newcastle United travels to Manchester City. Matt Miazga leads the Anderlecht backline into a league clash with Beerschot, Andrija Novakovich could return for Frosinone this weekend against Pordenone. Both Alan and Joel Sonora face tough league matchups in the Copa Diego Maradona tournament.
