Christian Pulisic

Christian Pulisic caused real concern in the Chelsea fanbase when he limped off before the start of the second half against West Brom, with a suspected hamstring problem.

But the USA international was fit enough to return to the squad for the Porto clash, and Tuchel has confirmed that the winger will be a big asset for the club in the season run-in.

“I think for Christian fitness is always important because he has this huge physical impact because of the amount of sprints and the amount of intensity that he can give to a team on the highest level, this is one of his biggest strengths,” Tuchel said in his pre-match press conference.

“The other thing is he needs to feel confident and calm mentally and then he can be a huge weapon for us. He scored in the last game against West Brom. Unfortunately the overall game and his need to go off the pitch at half time clouded the goal and the impact he could have had in that game. Against Porto he came close to scoring. He had a huge impact from the bench.

“You have to take care of him and that he hopefully will not be reinjured because I feel him getting stronger and stronger, more self-confident and he can be the decisive factor in the next game with his speed and ability to dribble and his ability to arrive in the box in dangerous situations and balls from the side and crosses he has the feeling to arrive and score.

“Hopefully he can have that impact and it is our job to push him there and to calm his mind that he feels the trust and feels confident.”
