Christian Pulisic is in his first season at Chelsea, and the American has had an injury hit campaign, and last featured in the 1-1 draw against Brighton on New Year’s Day.

Chelsea defender Reece James has been impressed with what he has seen with Pulisic and believes that the former Borussia Dortmund winger has taken to life in the Premier League pretty well.

Reece James told ESPN FC: “I’ve seen loads of players come to the Premier League and been off it, it’s a much faster league and they haven’t been up for it.

“But ever since he’s arrived he’s taken it very well and he’s a very good player and shown his strengths in the league so far.”

Pulisic has recently admitted he’s feeling good after suffering a freak injury that has kept him out since January.

“It was really tough with this most recent one,” he told the club’s official website.

“I think that a lot of people didn’t realise how serious it was.

“It was a really freak injury in how it happened. It happened in training out of nothing really and it put me out a while. But I’m feeling good now, I’ve been training a lot and I’m just really excited to get back out on the field.

“It feels like it’s been a long time without football for everyone at the moment, but certainly for me because I had the injury on top of everything that’s going on now.”
