Christian Pulisic scored his first career hat-trick to help the Blues beat Burnley 4-2 at Turf Moor on Saturday.

The 21-year-old who had struggled for form since his £58m transfer move from Borussia Dortmund is now in amazing form for the Blues and has been the hero in the past three games.

By scoring a hat-trick against Burnley, Pulisic has now become the youngest Chelsea player to score a hat-trick, beating the record that was recently set by Tammy Abraham.

Tammy Abraham became the youngest hat-trick scorer in Chelsea history just last month when he scored three in a 5-2 Premier League win over Wolves, but Pulisic has broken it at the age of just 21 years and 38 days old.

Abraham was 21 years and 347 days old at the time of his record which lasted only 42 days.

The American has admitted that Tammy Abraham won’t be happy that he broke his record which didn’t even last long.

“I’m sure he’s not going to be too happy about that,” said Pulisic. “But he’s a team player and this is a very special day for me.”

Former Tottenham and Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp believes Christian Pulisic proved his point after his impressive performance against Burnley.

“He has done [played himself into the team],” Redknapp said on Sky Sports.

“It’s the enthusiasm, desire to win the ball back and this is something he’s realised, he’s almost played like ‘I need to show something today’.

“He finds himself in an unusual position for a player that’s playing wide on the left but look what he does here, he goes and chases the ball, he forces [Matt] Lowton into the mistake, then he’s one on one with [James] Tarkowski.

“He does a stepover, it’s an unconventional one because normally you take it with your left foot once you’ve stepped over with your right.

“He keeps it alive and it’s a really good finish, he’s actually really strong and keeps it alive with a good finish.

“What a night for him so far.”
