In chealsea’s last game against burnley , Christian pulisic made a grand entrance with his perfect hat trick which he says “meant a lot after a slow start to life in England “
The American scored with his left foot, right foot and his head when the Blues won 4-2 at Turf Moor to get off the mark for his new club in his first start in the Premier League since August.
Pulisic will miss the return game with burnley this weekend due to a tendon injury but he reflected on his break through performance months ago saying scoring was a release and seeing as it was his first goal and first start in a while, he was ecstatic when it happened and it was a major confidence boost for him.
Pulisic spent time with Brackley Town’s youth team before returning to the USA and then making the move to Borussia Dortmund in Germany at the age of 18.
He caught the eye of several top European clubs before signing to Chelsea in 2019.
The 21 year old says playing for Chelsea is a dream come true and he is more settled to life in England and is especially happy about being Managed by a Chelsea legend Lampard.
“Obviously Lampard was a big player at Chelsea. I watched him growing up so finding out he was going to be my coach is pretty cool. It’s been great. He’s very intense, the training sessions are very intense too and I think that shows in our style of play – high pressing, hard to play against and that’s what we want to be”
Pulisic is confident that the team will finish top four at the end of the season.
