He didn’t figure in the scoring and did not have much impact on the match, but Christian Pulisic is back.
The U.S. international midfielder suited up for Chelsea Saturday and played the final eight minutes of Chelsea FC’s 4-0 home triumph over Crystal Palace in the English Premier League.
Man it feels good to be back😁 https://t.co/r1ECUGseqA

Pulisic, who had been sidelined with a hamstring injury since the FA Cup final Aug. 1, replaced Callum Hudson-Odoi in the 82nd minute.
It was Pulisic’s first appearance of the 2020-21 season.
The 22-year-old Pulisic scored Chelsea’s only goal in that cup final, a 2-1 loss to Arsenal.
He scored 11 goals and added 10 assists last season over 32 matches across all competitions.
