Pretty boring crop of games today + Pulisic looks to have taken his rightful place on the Chelsea bench
That is my big fear with Pulisic mving over to Chelsea. The EPL style of play is a lot different that what is seen in the Bundesliga, not better or worse, just different. It's going to take time for him to adjust. Chelsea is a team that expects to win every season and, with a new manager in Lampard, the pressure is notched-up. He has to win now to quiet his critics. Thus, Lampard does not have time to develop players (we have to remember that Pulisic is just 20 while Willian is 31) nor wait for them to adjust to a new league, team, and managerial style. On top of that, the USMNT needs him to get as much Tier 1 playing time as possible for the 2022 qualifying games and beyond. It's a tough position to be in.
