Blame yourself, no manager can trust you: Chelsea star gets criticized by Thierry Henry following another game-time shortage under Graham Potter

Blame yourself, no manager can trust you: Thierry Henry criticizes a Chelsea player following another instance of his lack of playing time under Graham Potter.

Christian Pulisic needs to find a way to change his current situation at Chelsea, according to Premier League icon Thierry Henry.

Pulisic has played 183 minutes on the field in nine outings across tournaments, with just one of those starts coming for the Blues this season. He watched most of Wednesday’s 3-0 triumph over AC Milan in the UEFA Champions League from the sidelines (October 5).

The American player apparently didn’t get along well with Thomas Tuchel, a former Chelsea manager. In just 21 of the 38 games he started last season, Pulisic managed to score eight goals and record five assists.

After the Blues’ victory over AC Milan, Henry argued that the manager could not be held solely responsible for the winger’s lack of playing time. The Frenchman said this when commentating on CBS Sports:

“How many managers won’t you have confidence in? Find a solution because eventually it has to be you.”

The weekend’s victory over Crystal Palace featured a notable assist from Pulisic for his team. Insisting that the forward consistently deliver such moments, Henry said:

“The other day Conor Gallagher came in against Crystal Palace — okay, I know he handed him the ball and Gallagher still had to score that goal that will go down as an assist — but it’s showing something,” said the referee. Gallagher was brought in tonight because of his away goal against Palace.

When the Blues play Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League this weekend, the American will aim to gain some playing time.
