Christian Pulisic's Dad Deletes Tweet About 'Sad' Chelsea Situation And Potential Transfer Away

Christian Pulisic's dad quickly deleted a tweet about his son's treatment at Chelsea following their shock 1-0 loss to Everton.

The USA international has found it hard to nail down a starting spot under Thomas Tuchel this season, with 17 of his 33 appearances coming from the bench.

Pulisic's last full 90 minutes came against Burnley back in March and he managed to score as well as grab an assist in that 4-0 thrashing. He also scored a last-gasp winner against West Ham United last month.

Chelsea have a wealth of attacking talent, but Mark Pulisic decided to voice his frustration on social media after seeing Christian come off the bench once again at Goodison Park.

In a now deleted post he vented: "The sad thing is he loves this club, teammates, and London.… puts his heart and soul into being a pro. Onwards and upwards my boy… big 6 months ahead.."

The 23-year-old joined Chelsea in 2019 and had the big task of filling Eden Hazard's boots, who moved on to Real Madrid.

His arrival coincided with the club's season-long transfer ban and expectations were big.

Since then, Pulisic has gone on to make 111 appearances in all competitions and featured in last season's Champions League final victory against Manchester City.

He'll be at the World Cup in Qatar with the USA, which is what Mark could be referring to in his tweet rather than a transfer.

Pulisic isn't the only attacker to fall down the pecking order.

Hakim Ziyech and summer signing Romelu Lukaku regularly join Pulisic on the Blues bench with Timo Werner, Kai Havertz and Mason Mount the preferred front three right now.

It was a fiery affair against the Toffees as Frank Lampard's side took a massive step towards Premier League safety.

Richarlison dispossessed Cesar Azpilicueta just after the break and slotted past Edouard Mendy for the only goal of the game.

Everton are still 18th in the table, but have closed the gap on Burnley and Leeds United to just two points while having a game in hand.

Burnley snatched victory from Watford on Saturday while Leeds were pummelled 4-0 by Manchester City later in the day.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have comfortably been third for some time but are yet to mathematically qualify for the Champions League.
