How to watch Christian Pulisic’s Premier League Chelsea vs. Manchester United
United States men’s national team star Christian Pulisic impressed for Chelsea in preseason action, but the 20-year-old will face his first real test in the Premier League in the opening weekend’s marquee match.
Pulisic, and new Chelsea manager Frank Lampard, will face club rival Manchester United at Old Trafford to kick off the year on Sunday. The Blues only have one win in their last five matches against Manchester United, with two losses and two draws.
Pulisic is expected to be in the starting lineup for Chelsea, and the American star is facing lofty expectations, as he attempts to fill the void left by ex-Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard.
Chelsea vs. Manchester United will begin at 11:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN.
You can stream the game online via NBC Sports Live, the NBC Sports app, or via fuboTV.
Pulisic scored two goals in exhibitions for Chelsea this summer, with both coming against Red Bull Salzburg. Pulisic played a somewhat reduced role last season for Borussia Dortmund (as his transfer loomed), but scored seven goals in 30 appearances.
