Christian Pulisic has been unfairly regarded by some as a rather one note footballer, a dribbler who is quick and dangerous on the break but not really creative or technical enough to play between the lines.
He’s starting to prove that theory wrong however, and his three assists show it.
The one against Southampton saw him poke it round the corner in a very tight space to Michy Batshuayi. Against Newcastle this weekend it was him who found Callum Hudson-Odoi on the left, where we had a numerical advantage and were able to score.
@Nomifooty on Twitter picked out these example and one against Liverpool in the Super Cup, to illustrate how much better he is at these parts of the game than some people think.

Christian Pulisic’s composure, vision and the ability to pass the ball late with pin point accuracy in tight situations is a joy to watch 🙌#CHENEW pic.twitter.com/S1bvcKmv71
