Christian Pulisic is the player to watch at Chelsea FC given his unbelievable talent, according to Blues legend Pat Nevin.

The United States international scored in Chelsea FC’s 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge last weekend.

Pulisic has netted five goals and has made three assists in his last nine games in all competitions for the west London side.

The 21-year-old scored his first Chelsea FC hat-trick in a 4-2 victory over Burnley last month before Pulisic netted at Watford.

Chelsea FC manager Frank Lampard initially used the American playmaker sparingly following his arrival at Stamford Bridge in the summer.

Pulisic moved to the Blues in a £57m deal from Borussia Dortmund after Lampard’s predecessor Maurizio Sarri oversaw the transfer.

However, the American’s performances have left Lampard with no choice but to play Pulisic in the Chelsea FC team.

Former Blues midfielder Nevin believes Pulisic is a big prospect for Chelsea FC.

“Pulisic is the one to watch,” Nevin told Irish radio station Newstalk.

“He could be unbelievable. I keep saying it every week. He has got stuff I haven’t seen for a long time. He can play on both sides – right and left, unbelievable pace, natural finisher and he’s a sweet kid as well.”

Pulisic has scored 19 goals in 127 games in all competitions during his four-season stay at Borussia Dortmund.

The Chelsea FC No22 won the German Cup in 2017 but missed out on the Bundesliga crown during his stint at the Westfalenstadion.

Pulisic will be hoping to feature in the Chelsea FC team against defending champions Manchester City at The Etihad on Saturday 23 November.
