Despite Chelsea’s shock defeat to West Ham earlier this week, fans are piling the praise onto Christian Pulisic.
The Irons managed to come away with all three points after a thrilling 3-2 result ended in their favour. Frank Lampard and his side will be disappointed as they look to continue their push for Champions League football.
Can Christian Pulisic beat Eden Hazard's goal tally for Chelsea?
However, a lot of Blues fans are lauding Pulisic for his performance at the London Stadium and all round ability this season. The club has posted an Instagram photo of him in action along with a quote from the manager’s post-match interview.
“It’s nice to see Christian back, fresh and hungry, and playing with the quality he has. He is going to get better. He is a young player with great talent,” Lampard said.
Pulisic joined the London outfit from Dortmund in January 2019 for £58million (via BBC Sport).
Pulisic suffered an abductor injury earlier this year which saw him sidelined for 11 matches. However, since his return, he has scored two goals in three appearances. His total tally for this season is currently eight goals and six assists (via Transfermarkt).
A lot of Chelsea supporters are likening the 21-year-old to club icon Eden Hazard, who amassed a total of 110 goals and 92 assists in 352 appearances in the same left-wing position (as per Transfermarkt).
If Pulisic stays with the club, he could go on to match the numbers the Belgian racked up during his time in London.
