Christian Pulisic was proud of how Chelsea battled the Wolves on Sunday after not giving up despite the squad's current troubles. The 23-year-old started in midfield of the Blues front three on Sunday afternoon when they were satisfied with one point in the Black Country. The Chelsea roster was exhausted after seven confirmed Covid-19 cases hit the roster last week ahead of the Everton and Wolves games. This led to Thomas Tuchel's team requesting the league to cancel the game on the weekend, but this was rejected. Tuchel's men went on fighting Bruno Lage's side and could have stolen all three points on the road before Christmas, but Jose Sa made a fine stop to defeat Pulisic late in the second half. It wasn't meant for the Blues, but they proudly traveled back to the capital after scoring a point in difficult circumstances. Pulisic took to Instagram after the game to praise the club and squad after the highly competitive tie at Molineux. Tuchel pondered the result for the Blues, who dropped to six points behind leaders Manchester City, but that didn't matter to the Chelsea head coach after the game. "The circumstances are the circumstances, I have often given my opinion and in the end you try to concentrate," Tuchel told the media full-time. "Of course there was a lot of noise in the last 24 hours." the challenges. The response in the second half was very, very good and it was a good performance. A 0-0 at Wolves ... we conceded another goal, so a lot of positive things. It's hard to create chances, it was clear before the game that it would be difficult to score goals here, that is clear. "We could have won it with a bit of luck, a bit more quality here and there, a shot or more or less situations on our side, but I'm very happy with our performance in the second half."
