We’ve gotten to the point where when Christian Pulisic is on the pitch for Chelsea, you just expect him to do something spectacular. It could be a goal, an assist, or winning a penalty or dangerous free kick. Saturday was no different.
The young American got the start in the FA Cup final against Arsenal, and he scored just five minutes in with absolute class. After running into the box, Olivier Giroud provided a cheeky assist that the 21-year-old Pennsylvania native put away with precision and perfect timing. Pulisic got past defenders in front of goal and lifted the ball perfectly over Emiliano Martinez for the opener.
Take a look:
A fine goal from Pulisic, but it’s an even better assist from Giroud. Pulisic’s hot season continues, and he can add having scored in a major cup final to his ever-growing resume. He’s already got double-digit goals on the scene, and he continues to build quite the bond with Giroud. Pulisic also made some history with the goal, becoming the first U.S. men’s international to score in an FA Cup final.
Winning the trophy would be an even bigger honor, and Pulisic helped his team earn the early advantage in its biggest game of the season so far with his fantastic ability.
But can Chelsea hang on and can Pulisic grab another? Follow along with our live blog of the match here.
