Tuchel knows Pulisic has what it takes to make it in west London and has challenged him to be ready when he is given the chance.

"Chelsea bought Christian for a reason - for his quality, for his potential and it’s our job to bring out the best in him," said Tuchel.

"He proved in many weeks that he has the level to be a Chelsea regular player, to have a big impact at this club and it’s a challenge now to maintain the level and to keep improving.

"It’s sometimes like this and the main thing for Christian is to stay positive, keep his head up and be ready because he can have a big impact when he starts and he can have a big impact when he comes from the bench with his intensity."

Pulisic could feature for the Blues on Tuesday night against Atletico Madrid after Tuchel confirmed he would travel with the squad to Bucharest.
