Patience running low for Chelsea fans with Christian Pulisic

Chelsea fans were critical with the US international's latest performance against Sheffield United having deposited more faith in Hazard's replacement.

Christian Pulisic is one of the key names when reflecting on the current Chelsea side under Frank Lampard with the Stamford Bridge faithful optimistic that Pulisic would automatically fill the void left by the Belgian wizard.

The former Dortmund player has a hard task at hand having won Lampard's trust since his arrival at Chelsea, earning a central role with the Blues since the beginning of the season.

The US international's performance at the UEFA Super Cup, assisting Giroud brilliantly for the first goal of the match had fans in a optimistic state of mind but already Pulisic's honeymoon period may be reaching an early end...

Chelsea fans were not happy with Pulisic's performance during the 2-2 draw against Sheffield United as the 20-year-old player struggled to leave an imprint on the action.

He spent most of the game on the right-wing and was lacking with his final ball and decision making. Chelsea fans later took to Twitter to express their disappointment with the US international.

Callum Hudson-Odoi is edging closer to return from injury and if Pulisic wants to hold down a regular place in the starting line, he needs to up his game. True, he's still adapting to a new club and the International break comes at an opportune moment for the young American who requires patience from the Stamford Bridge crowd to prove his worth.
