Christian Pulisic has become Blues best player and fill the void left by talisman Eden Hazard, because the USA skipper has a rare gift in his ability to speed past defenders and create chances for himself and team-mates.
The 21-year-old, who signed last summer for £57million, came with lofty expectations, but has been riddled with injuries throughout his first nine months in England.
Pulisic has spent the first months of the season as a fringe player, afforded time to bed himself into English football while manager Frank Lampard fielded weekly questions about leaving him out.
Early this years the USA skipper suffered adductors injury that ruled out of mid-March before lock down. But since resumption of football Pulisic is somewhat enjoying emergence right now.
The 21-year-old has been Chelsea’s standout performer in their three matches since back playing, and he was pinnacle in an attacking sense one again in Blues 1-0 victory at Leicester in the FA Cup quarter-finals yesterday.
Chelsea have struggled since the loss of Eden Hazard on that flank, but the 21-year-old has potential to fill the void left by Real Madrid’s star.
