Recall Pulisic! Chelsea fans react to Willian injury vs Southampton


Supporters of Chelsea have flooded to Twitter tonight to (jokingly?) suggest that the club should recall Christian Pulisic immediately, after Willian became the latest of the club’s wingers to pick up an injury.

Chelsea vs Southampton

The Blues welcomed Ralph Hasenhüttl’s men to Stamford Bridge this evening, in their first Premier League outing of 2019.

The capital giants came into proceedings having put their shock defeat at home to Leicester City two weeks ago firmly behind them, after picking up consecutive away wins over Watford and Crystal Palace over the last week.

Southampton, meanwhile, had fallen to consecutive losses in their last two fixtures, following a pair of rare victories over the weeks prior.

The first-half in London this evening has proven a tight affair, with just 4 shots attempted between the two sides.

One of the key talking points from the opening 45 minutes came shortly before the interval, when Chelsea winger Willian was forced off with an injury.

The Brazilian’s issue has only added to Maurizio Sarri’s personnel problems out wide, with Pedro and Callum Hudson-Odoi already sidelined with injuries of their own.

‘Recall Pulisic!’

As such, a number of Chelsea fans have taken to social media in the time since to question whether the club could move to call Christian Pulisic back from his loan with Borussia Dortmund early, following the American’s arrival from (and subsequent return to) the Westfalenstadion earlier today:
