The 21-year-old has had to wait his turn and for his opportunities under Frank Lampard this season, and in recent games, Pulisic has shown in qualities off and proven to be a real difference and influence to this current Chelsea side. 

Pulisic picked up the assist for Michy Batshuayi as the Blues scored a last-gasp winner in Amsterdam to go top of Group H in the Champions League, and then he bagged his first goals for Chelsea at the weekend against Burnley.

Off of the left foot, off the right and a slam dunk with his head to cap a perfect day for the USA star in Lancashire.

"Christian has been doing it recently, he's been doing it from the bench. He fully deserved his start today and it was a fantastic match-winning performance."

But so was Fikayo Tomori as he praised Christian Pulisic for 'biding his time' before being given the chance to excel in the Chelsea side.

"We know what Christian can do and he has had to bide his time and when he has come on in recent games he has done really well, and the manager rewarded him with a start on Saturday and to score a hat-trick, there is nothing better," Tomori said on Pulisic.

"I am really happy for him that he has managed to open his account and got a hat-trick as well."
