Christian Pulisic Takes Foul Throw, Ref Calls It The Worst He's Ever Seen
A professional footballer should know how to take a throw-in, but Christian Pulisic didn't against Everton today.
The Chelsea winger took a foul throw-in late in the 3-1 defeat at Goodison Park and it was so bad that referee Craig Pawson not only correctly gave a throw-in to Everton, he also said it was the worst he had ever seen.
Footage of the hilarious moment begun circulating on social media straight away.
There was a bit of Mike Dean in Pawson's mannerisms and you can't blame him. It was an absolute shocker from Pulisic.

Granted he was in a rush but his technique of throwing the ball to Kovacic was anything but legal.
As if Craig Pawson just said to his linesman over the microphone "That's the worst thrown in I've ever seen".
Christian Pulisic having a stinker today even the ref's mugging him off. Stick to baseball.

Pretty sure the referee Craig Pawson said to Pulisic, "That's the worst throw I've ever seen," after Pulisic was arguing when whistled for a foul throw. #EVECHE :joy:

Pulisic and Chelsea were well below par in the Premier League's lunchtime kick-off, with Frank Lampard's side suffering a second successive defeat this week thanks to some poor individual errors.
Everton went 1-0 up early on through Richarlison's header and extended their lead in the second half through Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
The Toffees No.9 then sealed the victory with a second strike ten minutes from time after some slack defending from Chelsea, following on from Mateo Kovacic's consolation goal.
