Christian Pulisic made a short cameo in Chelsea’s UEFA Champions League win this week and now aims for a starting role in Sunday’s important league clash with Manchester United.
Pulisic has had a tough time replicating his performances from last season into the current campaign, but has many more chances to impress for the Blues. The U.S. Men’s National Team star helped close out a 1-0 European victory over Atletico Madrid, playing the final few minutes away from home. Now he gears up for a tough test against Manchester United who remain in the title race picture despite starting to slip behind leaders Manchester City.
Elsewhere, Antonee Robinson and Fulham takes on Crystal Palace in a London Derby. Matthew Hoppe and Schalke aim to start a push out of the bottom three in the Bundesliga with a tricky test against Stuttgart. Sergino Dest and Barcelona travels to Sevilla in a top La Liga showdown while Tim Weah and Lille take on Strasbourg.
