Chelsea fans hail Christian Pulisic as ‘better than Eden Hazard’ after Crystal Palace goal | Football | Sport
The USA international scored his fifth goal in three games by netting a header against Crystal Palace on Saturday.
After spending a long period of time on the bench under Frank Lampard, he’s finally been given his chance, and has grasped it with both hands.
“With Pulisic there is a NO missing Hazard,” added another supporter.
“I admit I was wrong about who I thought was going to be the next Hazard. It’s not Hudson-Odoi. It’s Christian Pulisic,” said one fan on Twitter.
Another supporter added: “Don’t think we could have replaced Hazard with a better player.”
“Pulisic the goal machine, something that hazard can’t do on his spell here,” said another fan.
Chelsea beat Palace 2-0 at Stamford Bridge to at least temporarily go second in the Premier League table.
The Blues have now won six league matches in a row for the first since May 2018.
Lampard sent out the youngest ever Chelsea team, and the kids have continued to impress this season.
Meanwhile Palace continued their poor run of form, and are now without a win in three matches.
They’ve fallen down to ninth in the table, and have only scored 10 goals in 12 matches.
