Christian Pulisic was on fire for Chelsea as he scored a hat-trick to help Chelsea beat Burnley 4-2 on Saturday.

Pulisic continued his fine form following his recent performances against Ajax and Newcastle, and he was again the star of the show as Chelsea got a 4-2 win at the Turf Moor.

It was the perfect hat-trick for Captain America as he scored with his left foot, right foot and head.

The game against Burnley was also his first start for Chelsea in the Premier League since the 2-2 draw against Sheffield United in August, and he capped it off by scoring a hat-trick – the first ever in his career.

By so doing, 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.

Also, Pulisic is only the second American player to score a Premier League hat-trick, after Clint Dempsey for Fulham against Newcastle in January 2012. No wonder he’s called Captain America.

Pulisic is also the first American to score a Premier League goal for Chelsea.

Pulisic has become used to being the youngest player to do all sorts of things in his short career so far since bursting onto the scene as a teenager. The American star is the youngest to appear and score in a World Cup qualifier for USA, to captain USA, to score two goals in the German top flight and to play for Dortmund in the Champions League.

Chelsea indeed signed a record breaking player.
