Video: Lightning-fast Pulisic pounces on Man City error to give Chelsea the lead

Posted by

In the 35th minute of Chelsea’s Premier League clash against Manchester City, the Blues cleared a free-kick and a mix-up between Ilkay Gundogan and Benjamin Mendy gave Pulisic a glorious chance.

Pulisic’s decision to press forward certainly paid off as the ace used his rapid speed to latch onto the ball and charge forward.

The 21-year-old tricked Mendy by slowing down before using a burst of pace to skip into the box, Pulisic rounded off the fine play with a lovely finish curled into the bottom corner.

Take a look at the American superstar’s opener below:
