It has been surprising to see Christian Pulisic omitted from the Chelsea starting line-up for each of the past two games.
The USA international was signed in January from Borussia Dortmund for a big fee, and it seemed the 21-year-old would have a major role to play for the Blues this term, especially considering the two-window transfer ban that prevented the club from signing any other players during the recent window.

However, he has found himself on the bench in both of the last two matches against Wolves and Valencia, and on each occasion, he was not even brought on as a substitute.
A lot was expected of him, but he has so far not had a real run of games in which to deliver. The Blues face Liverpool in their next game at Stamford Bridge, and it will be interesting to see whether he gets the nod.
The south-west London outfit’s supporters, though, clearly want to see him play from the start.
They have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts, and you can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.

Starting lineup for Liverpool IMO
Azpi chris tomori Emerson
Kante Jorginho kovacic
Pulisic Tammy Odoi
(Given odoi and Emerson are fit to play) odoi is further ahead of Reece in recovery otherwise Reece in place of Azpi! And I don’t want Barkley near that starting XI #CFC
