Despite a slow start to his Chelsea career, American star Christian Pulisic was Chelsea’s best player in the second half of the season, as he went on to rack 11 goals and 10 assists in only 34 appearances.

There have been a lot of comparisons between Pulisic and former Chelsea star Eden Hazard, with many tipping Pulisic to go on and have a brilliant career ahead of him just like the Belgian superstar.

Eden Hazard scored 13 goals, provided 24 assists in the 64 games he played for the Blues in his first season, and former Chelsea striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has admitted that he was more impressed with the performance of Pulisic in his first season than Hazard.

“Christian Pulisic has been a revelation,” former Chelsea striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink told Gentingbet. “If you compare him to when Hazard first came to Chelsea, Pulisic has in my opinion done better.

“Hazard then went and became an absolutely brilliant star and carried everyone on his shoulders by winning games on his own. Pulisic can be the same – maybe even better.

“It’s not fair to compare them but Pulisic has done magnificently. I would just like him to be a little bit more clinical in terms of goals. I think he can score more goals.
