Manchester United legend Gary Neville has named Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic as the player that impressed him the most against Crystal Palace.

Chelsea beat Crystal Palace 3-2 on Tuesday to leapfrog Leicester City into third place and the American international was among the goalscorers.

“Really good. He’s impressed me enormously. As he gets one v one, I actually think Ward does all he can – which is shove him on the outside,” Neville told Sky Sports.

“He’s in trouble, he’s in the box, but you don’t expect that he’s gonna do that. He smashed it. Ordinarily, you’d say ‘Goalkeeper’, but there’s no chance.

“It’s so fast. Devastating from Pulisic. He was wonderful at West Ham in that defeat last week. He’s just set this game alight.

“When you’re a full-back and you’re in a position like that against a really good player, do the very best you can and put him in a position where it’s easier for the goalkeeper, that’s what he did.”
