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.


Liverpool will win its first title of the PL era if Man City drops points Thursday. Chelsea has its 45 minutes from doing just that.

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?
