We always said Liverpool wouldn’t win the league without Christian Pulisic.
Chelsea’s USMNT winger has put the Reds on the brink of the Premier League title with a beautiful goal to finish the first half versus Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Thursday.

The American’s seventh Premier League goal came when Ilkay Gundogan and Benjamin Mendy made a mess at the back, the latter especially problematic when Pulisic drove by him.
Pulisic, who also scored against Villa in Chelsea’s return from the coronavirus pause, spun the ball around a charging Ederson and inside the far post.
Will Man City respond, or will Liverpool win the trophy from its proverbial couch?
