Christian Pulisic scores double in Chelsea romp over Crystal Palace

Christian Pulisic had to wait more than three months to score his first English Premier League goal of 2021, but his wait for his second league goal of the year was just six days.

The U.S. Men’s National Team star scored a pair of goals in Chelsea’s 4-1 road win against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Pulisic’s first goal came in the first half on a beautiful touch and blast into the top corner.

Pulisic added an insurance goal in the 78th minute when he raced to the back post and finished off his second goal of the day.

Pulisic’s third and fourth goals of the Premier League season, and fifth in all competitions this season, came in a lively performance just a week after Pulisic scored against West Brom before being forced to exit at halftime as a precaution due to hamstring tightness.

Pulisic recovered quickly from the hamstring issue, playing 26 minutes in Chelsea’s 2-0 Champions League quarterfinal first-leg win against FC Porto on Wednesday.

Pulisic is heating up at a good time for Chelsea, with big games ahead, including the Champions League quarterfinal second leg on Tuesday, and the FA Cup semifinal showdown with Manchester City on April 17.

  1. Its been a good weekend for USMNT Players so far. It’s good to see Pulisic & Reyna both rounding into good form. Dike continues to get goals as well.

    • He could easily have had a couple assists with better finishing from teammates. He is becoming a more complete player right in front of our eyes. And how about the first 15 minutes for Chelsea…they looked like the best team in the world, whipping the ball around so fast, Palace literally didn’t touch the ball…was fun to watch CP be a part of that.

  2. Just a great goal and now he has a second which was more of a hustle goal. Plus,early on he forced an excellent save out of the keeper to be denied. Looking now like the player of the second half of last season.
