Chelsea’s Pulisic sends message to fans before huge Real Madrid showdown

Chelsea's Pulisic sends message to fans before huge Real Madrid showdown

Christian Pulisic says Chelsea’s shock defeat by Brentford can be a welcome kick-start and “fuel” for tonight’s crunch Champions League clash against Real Madrid.

The Blues went down 4-1 at home against their west London rivals on Saturday but Pulisic, who was rested, says they are still full of confidence for Real’s visit in the quarter-final first leg — a rerun of last season’s final-four clash.

Chelsea are also just five points clear of fourth-placed Tottenham and Arsenal in the table and preparing for an FA Cup semi-final against Crystal Palace this month.

Pulisic believes the Brentford game can be the wake-up call they needed for the decisive run-in. “The game at the weekend was a tough one but maybe the kick we needed to get us ready for the games coming up,” he said.

“The guys are definitely going to turn it around. We are still going to be confident, as we should. Going into a game like Real, it’s not going to be easy but hopefully that [Brentford] game will give us a bit of desire to get back out there as soon as possible and win a big game.

“We’ve all been through moments like that before, that’s why we are experienced as a team. While it was a crazy result, it’s not time to panic and take it with us. We’ll use it as fuel to turn it around. Everyone at the club handled it well. We will do the best to react and bring it into these next games.”
