Christian Pulisic’s dad liked several Twitter posts from Chelsea supporters criticising Thomas Tuchel, Mason Mount and Kai Havertz during the team’s 3-0 defeat to Leeds United.

Chelsea suffered their first loss of the new Premier League season on Sunday as they were convincingly beaten by Leeds at Elland Road.

Pulisic, meanwhile, is yet to start a game in the Premier League this season and was brought on with just 26 minutes remaining against Leeds as Chelsea attempted to salvage a result.

The USA international has made it clear this summer that he has been unhappy with his lack of playing time during Tuchel’s reign at Chelsea.

And now Mark Pulisic, the winger’s father, has appeared to support the criticism directed towards Tuchel after liking three posts on Twitter during Chelsea’s capitulation against Leeds.

One post which was liked by Mark Pulisic described Tuchel as a ‘destroyer of players and of team dynamics’.

Another two posts which were liked by Mark Pulisic suggested that Havertz and Mount have not done enough to warrant keeping their places in the team following Chelsea’s mediocre start to the campaign.

One post also urged Pulisic to leave Chelsea if he does not start in the next match.

Mark Pulisic has since removed the posts from the ‘likes’ section on his Twitter profile.

Meanwhile, Pulisic has been linked with a move to Manchester United as Erik ten Hag looks to improve his attacking options before the transfer window closes.

United are exploring the possibility of a loan deal for Pulisic but Chelsea would be reluctant to strengthen a direct rival.

Pulisic has already made it clear that he is keen to remain at Stamford Bridge to fight for his place in the team.

Hakim Ziyech is also admired by Ten Hag but the midfielder, who is open to leaving Chelsea this summer, is set to hold further talks with Ajax next week.
