Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic has revealed he feels healthy and back to full strength ahead of the game against Southampton at Stamford Bridge next Saturday.

The 21-year-old made his first appearance this season as a late substitute in the 4-0 win against Crystal Palace after suffering a hamstring injury in the FA Cup loss to Arsenal last season.

Speaking to CBS Sports, Christian Pulisic said: “It felt great [making my first appearance for Chelsea this season]. I had another tough injury, and it was really hard work to get back out there.

“I’m really excited I got some minutes on Saturday before the break. Now I just wish we had a game sooner, to be honest. But at least I’ll get a little rest.

“I was just really happy to make my season debut. It felt like a new beginning almost. A new number, a new season. Obviously, there are a lot of new players, too. Just a really great feeling overall.

“Yeah, [the hamstring is feeling] very good. I feel healthy and back to full strength.”
