Christian Pulisic has been one of the stars of Chelsea’s campaign last time around when they finished fourth in the Premier League. The attacking midfielder, who was a crucial part of Frank Lampard’s set-up, had struggled to replicate the same form this season. Plagued by injuries, the American player endured a roller-coaster campaign. Lately though Pulisic seems to have found his mark, becoming more influential in games.

In the Champions League knock-out stages he has been highly effective as Chelsea reached the semifinals at the expense of Porto. His recent impressive performances have made him a regular under Thomas Tuchel. He now has three goals in his last two Premier League matches.

“I hope that I’m catching a bit of fire now. It’s just a confidence thing where you see one ball go in the net and you’re feeling good about it, then things just seem to come more naturally,” he added. “It’s been a tough year, for a lot of reasons. I’ve been doing everything I can to take care of my body and it really does hurt when I can’t be out there.”

Scoring streak

Pulisic, who has started only 12 league games owing to injuries, believes it is the confidence that helps a player go on a streak. He said, “I think it all has to do with confidence and the way you’re feeling in the moment.”

“Streaks are definitely something that can be seen in a lot of different sports. I kind of went through one at the end of last season, I felt.

Pulisic is all geared up for the important part of the season. “I love this part of the year, when things get really important and every game can have a big influence on your standing at the end of the season,” he added.

“It’s the best time really, when everyone focuses up and the games are usually really good.”
