The 22-year-old has expressed his disappointment over Thomas Tuchel’s squad decision ahead of their UCL final tonight
Christian Pulisic despite being one of the major contributors on their current UEFA Champions League campaign is set to start from the bench.
The Blues have indeed become a stronger side under Tuchel but one of Chelsea’s players isn’t that very much happy he will be starting from the bench today.
Just like everyone else, Pulisic is fired up for the game today but finding out he will start from the bench only leaves him disappointed.
Speaking to CBS ahead of the game today, the American said; “Very frustrated. Yeah, not much else to say,” Pulisic said on him not making the starting eleven.

It’s Pulisic’s first UCL final match and he believes he can bring something different to the table.
“It’s normal [to face such competition],” the former Dortmund winger continued.
“When you come to a big club like Chelsea there’s going to be competition and that really just makes us better.
“I have to earn my place always. I have to play hard, and it has helped me improve a lot.
“We have a lot of incredible talent.
“I think I’m a very creative player and someone who can offer something very different with dribbling, those types of movements — I always look to attack.
“I definitely love the big games. That’s why we play football. I don’t need any motivation for these games.
“I’m ready to play, I want to play.”
Only Thiago Silva and Mateo Kovacic have been in the UCL final in the current Chelsea squad.
