‘Hazardesque!’ ‘He Was A Warrior’ Fans Praise Chelsea Ace Who Was Fouled ELEVEN Times Last Night

Chelsea scraped through to the semi-finals of the Champions League last night after negotiating a difficult second leg against Porto. The Portuguese side made life tough for the Blues, making a number of hard challenges.

Christian Pulisic was on the receiving end of a large number of them, with the American international being fouled on no less than eleven occasions.

The winger is very difficult to stop legitimately when he is in full flight and Porto’s players resorted to fouling him to try and nullify his threat. Supporters were, however, praising the 22-year-old after the game:

Pulisic did miss Chelsea’s best chance after half-time but, even so, he was a major threat, particularly in the second half, and it is a testament to him that he continued to show for the ball despite his rough treatment.

With his recent injury record, some would have been concerned by Porto’s decision to target him, but luckily he came out of the match relatively unscathed.
