Chelsea news: Christian Pulisic makes statement after being dropped by Frank Lampard | Football | Sport
Christian Pulisic is determined to prove himself at Chelsea after being dropped by manager Frank Lampard.
Pulisic didn’t get any playing time during the Blues’ most recent matches against Valencia as well as Wolves and has only managed to play one full game, against Sheffield United, since joining in the summer.
This has resulted in a poor start for him at the Stamford Bridge outfit given he was also viewed by a section of the fans as a direct replacement for former star forward Eden Hazard who left for Real Madrid.
Pulisic told Chelsea’s official website ahead of today’s (4.30pm) clash with Liverpool: “I have heard people say that but it is not how I look at it.
“It should not be how anyone does because he [Hazard] was a club legend and he did amazing things here and he is an unbelievable player, but I am coming here as a known player and I am going to show everyone what I can do and play the best I can, for myself and for the club, and that is all I can do.
“It is a very physical league as people say here.
“The games have been very intense, every game has presented its own challenge, every team is different.
“The Bundesliga was also a brilliant league.
“I can’t say it wasn’t because they are all good teams and every game was tough, but there a few differences but nothing major that I am not used to.
“London is amazing, it is quite a big city.
“Dortmund wasn’t the biggest city but a nice city but I am really happy to be here and I am definitely enjoying that side of things.
“The American culture is a lot different than really anywhere in Europe, the food you can get, the people, everything was a bit different.
“Going to Germany was a big shock for me but definitely coming here is a lot more similar to how it is in the US.
“Obviously not the same but a lot more similar.”
