Read Chelsea’s verdict
Pulisic has certainly quietened a lot of the doubters after a tough debut from the bench against Manchester United.
His goal was sublime and was unluckily ruled out for offside.
If the winger can continue to perform like that on the big stage, then he could be set for an impressive career with the Blues.
It was certainly a pretty solid shift from the midfielder.
