So who’s gonna make a gif of Pulisic dribbling out of trouble in the 38”?


VladyPoopin

That was slick.


rhganggang

That was some nice skill


matthewxman79

Meh. Should have scored. Sell him.


Danktizzle

LOL


atlutdprospects

ESPN soccer content is 80% old british dudes just saying "he has to score there" over and over again


hairlikegoats1

The double standards are obvious. Liverpool misses:. Oh he couldn't get there in time, that's a difficult finish, a little unlucky. Pulisic misses:. My word how does he miss that?


Dekalbian

Meanwhile Lukaku and Marcos Alonso send howlers


Betasheets

Liverpool is the English darlings along along United and Arsenal and Chelsea are like the evil villains. It's been like that since I've been watching hang the premier league in 2010.


VladyPoopin

Burley and Nicol are awful.


xlunited1

Paramount+ vs ESPN+ for in studio crew is just an unfair competition. Paramount's halftime/post game show is like must-see TV and ESPN is just old British guys complaining for 10 minutes straight.


Liquidice281

Right? I love how he was like “pulisic keeps falling over”… proceeds to show highlights of Pulisic not falling


xlunited1

Pulisic falls over plenty each game, but his balance had absolutely no impact on any of the chances he had. Just an absurd take.


christmas_steps

Yeah, I noticed that too. Shut the fuck up Craig lol


cannedshorts

Some people in the Chelsea sub legitimately want Werner on for Pulisic. He’s literally been involved in every good chance they’ve had this half and easily been the most productive of the front 3. Could he have been more clinical? Absolutely, but the Chelsea sub holds him to an unbelievably high and reactionary standard


FogoCanard

If Werner is in, they'll say the opposite. That's just how the sub is. It's toxic on gameday


RustyKarma076

The Chelsea sub expect Puli to score on every single chance and anything less than Messi-esq production means he’s shit and not good enough. Meanwhile they’ll pull out every excuse in the book for Werner and his “work rate.” It’s tiring


cannedshorts

Agreed. No one converts every single chance they get, it’d be a pretty boring sport if that’s how it was


Responsible-Score

Guys I keep trying to say this. Don’t go to the Chelsea sub lol. Even for the internet, it’s pretty shocking. Shockingly dumb people.


WhoKilledBobSaget

Creed thoughts lol


VladyPoopin

That’s the problem though. Cheeto-fingered keyboard warriors have no idea what clinical even entails. It’s tough to do. That’s why these guys are pros and it still doesn’t happen on every pass or possession. He’s been playing well.


waterbottlefromhell

I mean, we’re def not as bad on this sub, but we do that too…


Quiet_Dino

Rudiger just passed to pulisic that's how you know he's playing well


xlunited1

hahahaha I thought the same exact thing when that happened


BenMouri

Just going to point out, for all the bitching. Chelsea didn’t have a single shot (not on target, but at ALL) in the 20 minutes or so after Pulisic went off. Their attack has all kinds of problems but it’s not him.


chrimewave

as they say, lets go outside of silva, its same exact 11 as midweek, even kova and kai havertz must be injured or something since hes not even on the bench


BrotherSeamus

> havertz No news I could find. Even the Chelsea sub was caught off guard.


jacob_shetterly

He was a late scratch with an injury. I think a reporter broke that news after the team sheet came out lol


Reasonable-Target965

He knows Puli is better so probably just quit the team


ichabod01

Pulled hamstring


ColoradoStark

Wow the Chelsea match thread is actually brain dead. Blaming the Alonso chance on Puli for a “poorly timed ball”


MAG_24

Fuck that sub


[deleted]

[удалено]


jacob_shetterly

The ball wasn’t a bad one, but there was definitely a better time to play it. Especially with Alonso, let that fucker rip it first time on his left foot lol.


blueisthecolor_2020

Slight overhit.


skoobydoodoo

Guys who cares if some Chelsea fans don’t rate him. Just enjoy the game because an American is starting for one of the biggest clubs in the world in a cup final.


xlunited1

Pulisic out here hitting 20 yard through balls to himself going for the hockey assist AND a normal assist. He's playing so good today


ichabod01

Playoff hockey pulisic


S_Phantom

Luis Diaz misses wide, he was mightily close. When it’s Pulisic, he needs to do better 😂


gmen868

Deadass. And Jota's few chances, and everyone else lmao


MUTHAFUCKIN-HERNIA

Literally 0 threat from Chelsea after Pulisic came off


josequeero

Pulisic has been good. Chances for Chelsea have gone through him and he’s moving very well with and with out the ball. Being able to play centrally and carry possession is when he shines. Love this version of him!


josequeero

Also, Diaz is so good.


furyousferret

Signing guys for a third of the cost of Man City players and getting double the value. Plays like he can replace Mané or Salah.


josequeero

It’s crazy. Also crazy how fast he’s made an impact on the team. Liverpool have found a gem.


backuppats

if chelsea lose this it's on Tuchel. taking off puli (good pen taker and best attacker on the day) for RLC just to sub off RLC 15 min later???


Machiavelli127

Thought they announced #10 Christian Pulisic subbed off but looks like it was actually Lukaku


HeyZeusQuintana

They did


rhganggang

Puli having a great game looking very dangerous


utch-unit

3 min into the 2nd half and Pulisic has been Chelsea’s best attacker by far.


atlutdprospects

One constant when it comes to penalty shootouts even vaguely involving the nation of England is that it will be a Brit who causes his team to lose


HydraHamster

Chelsea lost. Personally, they should’ve kept Pulisic on instead of Mount. Pulisic looked extremely dangerous and was by far one of the better players on the field. Regardless of the result, I am very happy with what I saw from him today.


jtmv4

It's games like these where you see Pulisic can be world-class. If he develops that killer instinct in front of goal, he'll elevate himself to that level.


Quiet_Dino

That and if he can regain his speed


VGP_SC

Did you just see that?


gmen868

Pulisic is going to be a beast at the start of next season. Just look at what 2-3 weeks on the bench did for him, he now looks sharper and quicker than he had all season.


mcjoness

Cannot stand the ITV commentators that will shit on everything Pulisic does. Guarantee if you switch his name with Mount they would be gushing about how close he was and dangerous he's looked


stubblesmcgee

Annoying to see the commentator immediately say it was a poor pass. I know he sometimes underhits it, but I thought that was great.


LimeeSdaa

Pulisic played well, most chances went through him and he looked sharp. Yeah he could improve on finishing a bit but overall good game and he’s in good form right now.


jtmv4

Chelsea fans are the worst combination of genuinely clueless about how the sport is played while also being toxic. Being involved and creating chances is somehow problematic to them. Do they realize that not every chance is going to end up in the back of the net? I don't see the same hate for Luis Diaz who looked dangerous in the opening 20 but couldn't convert...


Chop-Panthers

If I’m a Chelsea fan and you told me that Pulisic would outplay or match Diaz today I would take it in a heartbeat


Dekalbian

Good cut in by pulisic. He and Mount have some chemistry


clydefrog27

LP vs. Chelsea are just one of those matchups that can be 0-0 but are still great to watch.


RustyKarma076

Have we reached the point where we can say Tuchel is not a good manager for subs?


Chop-Panthers

Yes. Isn’t Werner actually good at pens too? And he goes with RLC lmao


Schlabonmykob

And then subs him off lol.


stubblesmcgee

i know pulisic was gassed, but if mount is known to be poor at pens and was also eh all game, why not sub him instead?


RustyKarma076

Im newer to soccer, but I’m really struggling to understand why Chelsea fans and these commentators think that was a bad pass. If Alonso takes a better first touch that’s a goal.


SportsRadioAnnouncer

It was a little bit off. Not terrible but he could’ve done better.


ichabod01

Horrible first touch. Ruined that pass.


atlutdprospects

Man played a through ball to himself, haven't seen that one before


RustyKarma076

Puli game winner pleaaaaaaaase


NutmeggD

This is his third straight year playing in a FA Cup final and second time starting. Pretty impressive for a guy some people label as a bust


Danktizzle

I don’t think he ever was a bust. The echo chamber was just so crazy loud from the demands of sycophants instead of trusting a club and it’s manager to do the job of winning and staying competitive in a difficult league. It’s been a tough year for Chelsea. Lukaku was a total bust and sanctions cost us rudiger. I think this was the first year in Pulisics career that he didn’t get hurt significantly (???) so that is a major victory for the #10 of club and country. Edit: chillwell was hurt all season and James missed a good chunk too. Both were big parts of Chelsea’s attack.


Slim_Calhoun

How is he still somehow underrated


Luke_627

Cmon now he is not underrated lmao


[deleted]

Eh he's properly rated. Magician on his day, but he needs more consistency. He hasn't broken the 10 goal barrier in two years, and until h consistently does that again, he will be rated like he currently is.


jacob_shetterly

How dare you have a nuanced opinion on Pulisic?


SportsRadioAnnouncer

It’s like a pendulum. Some Americans think he’s the next Messi, so fans counter by deciding he’s not even good enough to play in the Prem. Back and forth.


THEKIDFL6

No Americans think he’s the next Messi. Maybe some who don’t follow soccer at all.


Hawkeye91803

I don’t know anyone who thinks he’s the next messi, at least not on this sub. But i do still see potential that if he can improve he can be even better.


NailsDeChamp

He is in form, and always shows up in big matches. Let’s go!


_StephBetter_

would have loved to see Puli go for a shot there instead of the cross


africh84

It was a very difficult angle


Herwin10

Pulisic has been really good, looks quicker than he’s looked of recent. Maybe should have finished one of his chances but that’s a lot harder of a finish than it looks


usmnt2015

He’s pissed with himself


FDTerritory

If Chelsea is too stupid to want him, I'm positive that after a performance like this he won't have issues getting a big-time club job. It'd reflect on Chelsea much more than CP.


gmen868

He is absolutely good enough for Chelsea and top UCL Clubs


LOLteacher

Puli misses just left of goal: "He has to do better". Diaz does exactly the same: "Good effort!"


Machiavelli127

And Alonso


S_Phantom

Watching the BBC coverage, I concur.


usmnt2015

And that ass header from Robertson lol 😂


sickstudentthrw

yeah theres some liverpool bias on the coverage unfortunately, jota had one of the worst misses


FDTerritory

And the first name that gets mentioned for guys that don't take chances in the postgame is Pulisic. Screw Chelsea and screw these Brits. He was the best player on the pitch for Chelsea and they go straight to "blame the American". It's so predictable and yet so stupid.


chrimewave

mount+pulisic is a vibe i love watching them play together


usmnt2015

Someone take that glue off of Pulisic’s boot


backuppats

why was puli taken off for RLC of all people lmfao. timo i would kinda understand since puli is tired but even if tuchel's playing for pens puli is so much better than RLC


S_Phantom

Chelsea, the Buffalo Bills of the FA Cup.


peanut-britle-latte

Painful outcome. He was very good. Tough chances and on average you'd hope for one goal. 3 straight runners up medals will hurt.


Chunko_Chunk

Pulisic wouldn't have missed.


LimeeSdaa

Cheeky nut meg pass that could have been a hockey assist


S_Phantom

Damn, I just want him to score 😩


karjacker

that run was insane how did he not lose the ball lmao


Quiet_Dino

That pass to Kante was brilliant


andylui8

Never mind no buzzer beater...Lebron James is off


SalsaMaracas

Great game. Him and Díaz best 2 players on the pitch today.


rhganggang

Their golden boy mount comes up small in the penalties hahahaha you love to see it.


cantresetpwfuck

Pulisic was easily Chelsea’s best player. And a shout out to N’golo mf’n Kante. What a special player.


SergeantFuxALot

Not even a question. He’s coming into great form right now. Too bad he didn’t finish one of his chances and Alonso derping his perfect opportunity off his great pass was shitty.


Quiet_Dino

I'm off to chelsea's sub to be toxic as hell about Mount


MAG_24

Lol


depchfdwanetrobinson

I expect high levels of douchebaggery, don’t let us down


kuyakew

Welp


floatpool

MOTM


gmen868

Oh my goodness what a miss by Mount. Sell him asap (sarcasm)


LOLteacher

Lots of misses by all. Exciting match, though!


Gringorio

Pulisic off. Now I can cheer for Liverpool with a clear conscious.


RedWhiteAndDenim

He was excellent today. Wish he could’ve taken home the cup but it still can’t be overstated how great it feels to have an American play such a major role in so many massive games each year.


teeroy96

Fuck twitter. Pulisic is getting equal blame as Mount and Azpi right now. I'm typically one of the first to call out our boy when he is of primary blame. But this is asinine, he was solid today. I really hate people.


floatpool

Avoid r/chelseafc. The idiocy from all corners of the globe regarding Pulisic is unreal. Even Americans in that sub have lost the plot.


FDTerritory

So much self-hatred. They need therapy, not Reddit. "Please like me please please PLEASE I'm not like other girls".


clydefrog27

As always, the best solution is to GET OFF OF TWITTER


depchfdwanetrobinson

The trending page on Twitter is definitely not the right place to get discourse that makes sense or is insightful


Aware_Watercress1155

The amount of hatred I see in that Chelsea sub is actually disgusting. What a shit fanbase


gmen868

Is ESPN+ serious with this quality


goatvaro_goatrata

Halftime now, he's been excellent so far. Good in the buildup and created Chelsea's two biggest chances


NutmeggD

Pulisic’s runs into the box have improved a lot this year. How many of those chances has he had here lately.


MAG_24

Please tell me Timo is not coming in for CP


Greenman1694

Lukaku hasn’t done much from what I’ve seen so I hope it’s for him


chrimewave

hes gotta be coming on for lukaku


MAG_24

Everyone looks gassed


andylui8

Pulisic would never


gmen868

The way people talk about Pulisic is disgusting, how could anyone say he's playing poorly? That world cup game vs England is going to mean so much


RustyKarma076

If Puli has a good game against England he would be labeled a national terrorist by Chelsea fans lmfao I can’t wait


VladyPoopin

Alonso should have one touched that to Lukaku. Perfect placement by Pulisic. One-two bang boom. Alonso with one too many touches.


Chop-Panthers

I don’t know if I change much if I’m tuchel with the attack. The chances have been there with the mount lukaku pulisic front just need 1 or 2 finishes (which Werner isn’t typically known for at Chelsea)


MAG_24

Guarantee Pulisic is the highest rated player this half


Chop-Panthers

Idk mount has looked very solid to me also. Them 2 definitely been the standouts in the chances created area though


atlutdprospects

FWIW Fotmob has him at 6.3, which is tied for 2nd lowest in the team. Jorginho on a 7.1


brobcs15

This is a fun game to watch gotta say. Pulisic is playing great and the game is back and forth


NonNormCore

Pulisic is helping shut down delivery to Diaz. During the break when Salah was injured in the first half, one of Tuchel's assistants was giving Pulisic instructions and now on defense he has shifted over to cover the middle of the pitch and keeping a close mark on Henderson.


S_Phantom

Be the hero Pulisic, be the hero 🙏


LOLteacher

I want Puli to go 90, but FML if he is the penalty taker that loses it for Chelsea. But I don't want Liverwurst to win in regulation either. Edit: Oh, there's extra periods, right? I forgot.


RustyKarma076

His last 2 PK’s with the USMNT were fantastic. If this goes to pens we have to be optimistic


chrimewave

cant think like that, if this goes to penalties i absolutely want pulisic taking one hes made clutch PKs before


LOLteacher

Nah, I'm with you on that for sure. I'd love a regulation Chelsea win, b/c I've got a lot of shit to do around the house.


MAG_24

That would be brutal


gmen868

Pleeeeease don't sub him off.


drake1905

Dis is where I stop watching


BlueXanzy

Damn another year another FA cup slipped away from our guy. As a Liverpool fan I will celebrate today tho.


Legodude293

I’m seeing more support for usual for puli on Chelsea sub, so ima assume he played well


mzp3256

Pulisic's dad should win US player of the year.


stubblesmcgee

he's been really involved, which makes it even more frustrating that he's got nothing to show for it other than still being in the game. as a us soccer fan i know those weren't easy shots, but if i were a chelsea fan, i would be frustrated he couldn't get one of those shots on target.


SalsaMaracas

I'm glad it wasn't Pulisic missing. Lol


rhganggang

He would have buried it


brobcs15

I thought the same lmao


PatrickWillis

Pulisic was Chelsea’s best attacker that half and every single Brit on this ESPN broadcast is shitting on him anyway


gmen868

He deserves this start! Lets go Christian!


atlutdprospects

Chelsea going trophy-less in 2022 is funny, but Liverpool having the incredible season they've had and only winning the Carabao Cup would be even funnier


cannedshorts

I think Pulisic, Lukaku, and Mount have had less than 5 touches combined in these first 15 minutes


cTheDeezy

So close there…


usmnt2015

Beautiful aggression and pass love it


ichabod01

Probably should have had an assist


Quiet_Dino

Chelsea supporters are deranged.


Upekkhaa

Lukaku’s first touch is comical


atlutdprospects

Chelsea doesn't have anyone else to stretch Liverpool's defense, you'd think that would be Pulisic's role, instead he's very central and almost playing as an 8/10. Surrounded by defenders every time he's on the ball Not sure what Tuchel's going for here, but without that vertical threat Chelsea's attacking threat is severely limited


Matsu09

And Pulisic just rarely looks his best centrally. I just don't get it. He's a winger almost exclusively, there's nothing wrong with that. He could probably play striker against El Salvador and Guam effectively, but not against Liverpool.


VladyPoopin

Looked good centrally last few times out for Chelsea.


brobcs15

He’s stopped taking defenders one on one on the outside and he can find the open spaces in the midfield


tigerking615

Goddam, Puli just had a beautiful meg that, one pass later, led to a good Lukaku look that he skied.


SalsaMaracas

Best player first half.


RustyKarma076

Puli plays his best against Liverpool. I remember that equalizer he had a few months ago


Machiavelli127

Neither team can put a shot on target. Liverpool 17 shots, 2 on target (both very comfortable saves). Chelsea 9 shots, 2 on target.


andylui8

Lebron James with the buzzer beater game winner :)


luxurythyrsus

Looks like Tommy Tactics doesn’t want the dub. Sad!


jkman61494

Stupid not to let this guy take a PK


rccola4422

Chelsea fans, by and large, are idiots. That ball was released at the perfect time to give Alonso a 1v1 at a good angle. Just took a heavy touch.


xlunited1

Like could he have played Alonso earlier? Sure. But it wasn't a bad chance because Puli held it too long. He set him up with possibly an even better chance and Alonso just took an awful first touch which ruined any hope of a goal. Sometimes there are multiple windows you can play a quality pass, not just one.


alabamafutbol1235

Torn as a Liverpool fan.. hope our boy balls out today!!


ibcoleman

As a fellow Red what works for me is hoping CP scores a hat-trick in a 4-3 Chelsea loss.


falseNaoi

Wonder what kind of mental gymnastics people on this sub will do to drive their narrative of Tuchel not liking him


VladyPoopin

I bet they think that cross was crap too, huh? Right to Alonso.


atlutdprospects

Petition to never allow these 2 teams to play in a Cup final again


Milk_Busters

Wow. Guy is just putting in a fantastic shift in Europe.


andylui8

I do miss Pulisic’s burst of speed he used to have


VGP_SC

I don’t understand this, in what situation of this game has he had room for such a burst?


Kidflame171993

Almost scored


RustyKarma076

Just got the game on. How has Puli looked so far


Kidflame171993

Should have a goal and an assistant. So he’s been involved


GrasshoperPoof

An almost assist to go along with the almost goal.


karjacker

damn poor touch there


LimeeSdaa

Damn. Alonso should have done better there but Pulisic’s pass a bit too much weight on it.


Informal_Mix_6253

It’s seems like tuchel has told pulisic to man mark Henderson after about the 25 minute


NutmeggD

Such a good manager. Absolutely changed the match in Chelsea’s favor when he did


VladyPoopin

Wow. That set piece was so close.


Osama_bin_laughin

I’m a chelsea fan but I think Puli needs to go somewhere where he is appreciated, dude has 6 goals 2 assist in 21 games, he doesn’t start or play his natural position and he gets shit lol makes no sense he should just leave this club


jacob_shetterly

HAHAHAHAHA if any of you fucks tell me that Tuchel favors the Germans ever again I will point at Ross Barkley.


jonnygozy

Timo needs to get his dad on Twitter, I guess
