"Absolutely we're all impressed," Pulisic told Standard Sport. "What he can do on the field is pretty special. He's got so much ability, so many different ways to help the team. The sky is the limit for him.

"Honestly, the way he is playing right now and the way he strikes the ball, I wouldn't be surprised [if he stayed top scorer].

"That's what’s great about our system – it allows him to attack a lot. He was really strong last night and you could see how much he helped us in attack."
