Chelsea midfielder, Christian Pulisic has come out to say that Chelsea must show character on the pitch. He recently revealed that the players need to be without the ball during games, as this weakness was exposed vs Manchester City.
According to him, the club is in a tough period, but Chelsea has been in this situation before, so they will eventually get out of it.
He added that the players need to turn it around quickly and start putting together a run of results.
His words, “We’re in a tough period,”
“It’s going to happen to everyone at times and we’ve been in these situations ourselves before.
“We have a game next week where we need to start turning it around because we do need to start getting results quickly. We’ll watch this game back, look at it as a team and see what we can improve on. It’s not going to be easy but we need to show character now.
“We have some games coming up where we need to turn it around quickly and start putting together a run of results.”
“They were able to beat us on some transitions where we needed to defend better and be a little smarter and then we allowed them to dictate the tempo of the game.
“We had to go back out and show character. We’re never going to give up, we know we have talented guys and a good team but we just need to show it, which is what we did in the second half.
“It’s not easy to come back from three goals down but it’s happened before so we gave it everything and managed to get one back. Unfortunately, it was just too little, too late.”
