Chelsea and City, 1-1, on Pulisic(!) and De Bruyne goals.

If City drops points Liverpool are crowned champions, in probably the most anti-climactic way, today. The air has really been let out of the balloon for this season, but what a remarkable run they’ve had. Deserves more.

Chelsea take it 2 - 1

Liverpool are champs, long time coming.

For us Americans on Pulisic watch, he gave a good account of himself in a big game.
He should have had a hat trick

That last chance is going to haunt him tonight, I still can’t believe it wasn’t a goal. What an effort tho.

Pulisic has added some muscle

And is playing very well. Scored again today. 7 goals, 3 assists in 13 starts is a very good showing for his first year in England. 2 incredible stops on the line prevented him from having a hat trick today.

I'll be honest he's exceeded my expectations for his first season in England. And the fact he put put muscle on shows he knows he needed to bulk up to avoid injury in this league. Sky is the limit.
I may not be

a fan of Chelsea, but I am a fan of Pulisic. It's about time an American player excelled in the EPL. Guys like Dempsey and Donovan played well for the USMNT, but didn't do a whole lot in Europe. Pulisic looks like he's going to be a major player.

Has a chance to become the first world class American player, but you’re doing Dempsey a disservice...he was a star for Fulham. He was voted their player of the year more than once and scored a bunch of goals including one of the best you’ll see against Juventus in the Europa.

What Klopp has built at Liverpool is really incredible.

Nothing against Dempsey, but I considered him a good player in the EPL, not exactly a star. Pulisic looks like he can become a star player.
I realize you're referring to field players -

but mention should be made that Brad Friedel and Tim Howard were stars of their EPL teams.

Claudio Reyna was Captain America at City 17 years ago; McBride is beloved at Fulham more than Dempsey.

Watching Dempsey at Fulham is a bit sad, that team should be a mainstay in the Premier League; Craven Cottage is a great stadium and that section of London gets a ton of young families and ex-pats. The Khans don't seem to be good at sports ownership.
Pulisic Has A Chance

to be a very good player in the EPL and a leader of the American national team. However, he is really the type of player whose skills require that he be surrounded by other quality players. He will be much better on a Chelsea than a team where he has to create for himself. In any talk about American "stars" in the EPL, Dempsey deserves all the props he gets but do not overlook the success of the American goalies. There has been a significant run of quality goalies who player in the EPL, with Tim Howard, Freidel and Guzan having solid careers there.
