This is the last thing both Chelsea and American soccer fans wanted to see in the middle of the FA Cup Final.Moments ago, American soccer sensation and Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic went down with what appears to be a hamstring injury and it doesn’t look good whatsoever. On the play, Pulisic raced down the pitch and injured himself right before he was getting ready to blast a shot.

Pulisic has been on an absolute tear for the Blues since play resumed, scoring five goals in all competitions. Early on in Saturday’s FA Cup Final, Pulisic gave Chelsea an early 1-0 lead thanks to a sensational finish inside the box.
Arsenal was able to tie things up at 1-1 before halftime thanks to a goal from the penalty spot from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. However, Pulisic looked poised to give his team the lead once again on his brilliant run. Unfortunately, he injured his hamstring, but still managed to try and get a shot off despite being in incredible pain.
Pulisic was subbed off shortly after he hit the turf. He was able to walk off with the help of medical staff, but you could tell just how much physical/emotional pain he was in having to leave his teammates for the rest of the final.

In his first year with Chelsea, Pulisic has battled multiple injuries. The hope right now is that his current one isn’t anything serious and that he’ll be able to suit up once the new EPL season gets underway in September. Should he miss an extended period of time, it’d be a major blow for Chelsea.RELATED PRODUCTNike Chelsea FC Home Mens Stadium Soccer Jersey 2019/20Buy Now!Buy Now!

Fantasy Football draft steal alert: Reach for DeVante Parker
Next1 of 3Prev postUse your ← → (arrows) to browse
Miami Dolphins’ DeVante Parker ended 2019 as a WR1 in all fantasy football formats. Here’s why he’ll do it again in 2020.
The Miami Dolphins’ 2015 first-round pick, wide receiver DeVante Parker, finally broke out last year as the overall WR6 in standard, the WR7 in 0.5 PPR, and the WR11 in full PPR. This translated to an impressive 10.9 fantasy points per game (FPPG) in standard, 13.1 FPPG in 0.5 PPR, and 15.4 FPPG in full PPR.
Parker became the clear #1 receiver for the Dolphins’ after teammate Preston Williams suffered a season-ending ACL injury against the New York Jets in Week 9. The combination of Williams’ injury plus quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick‘s resurgence allowed Parker to go from a mediocre flex to fantasy gold.

Ryan Fitzpatrick took over as Miami’s starting quarterback for good in Week 7 last year. Over those 11 games, Parker had 59 receptions (on 100 targets) for 973 yards and seven touchdowns. He was [the overall] WR2 in both standard and full PPR fantasy scoring over that span.
But it gets even better. He did all this despite goose-egging in Week 2 against the Patriots, and suffering a concussion that knocked him out early in the second quarter against the Jets in Week 14 (caught 2 of 2 targets for 28 yards). With only a few points separating the receivers ranked higher than Parker for the year, one could easily see him finishing in the top 5 in standard and top 10 in PPR had he avoided injury.Next: A history of Ryan Fitzpatricks WR1 Next1 of 3Prev postUse your ← → (arrows) to browse
