Watch: Christian Pulisic destroys two defenders with Ronaldinho flip-flap
Chelsea‘s Christian Pulisic destroyed two Sheffield United defenders with some silky footwork during their 2-0 win in the FA Cup quarter-final.
Pulisic was one of the standout performers in a game where Chelsea were made to work harder for their win than many expected.
But one piece of skill stood out and made Chelsea supporters very excited indeed.
The USA international was crowded out by three Sheffield United players towards the right-hand touchline but found the space to wriggle past Enda Stevens and John Fleck and into the penalty area.
On Ronaldinho’s birthday, Pulisic paid fitting homage to the Brazilian legend with his smooth footwork.
“He wants to score goals. Before he got injured he was one of Chelsea’s more effective players,” Micah Richards told BBC Sport after the game.
“I thought he had a very good performance today. Talk about has he got the skill. He shows lovely footwork, fantastic skill. It’s a little flip-flap and he deserved a goal.”
