Chelsea star Christian Pulisic is usually effective while playing on the left wing for Chelsea, but this season, Timo Werner has been deployed in the left wing by Chelsea boss Frank Lampard.

There have been calls for the Chelsea manager to deploy Pulisic back in his favoured left wing position, but the American star has now admitted that he can play anywhere upfront.

“I’ve played on both wings a lot,” Pulisic said. “I can be very effective on the left wing but there are also a lot of good things I can do on the right.

“I’m learning to play both and I’m comfortable with both and anywhere in the attacking half. When I get the ball I like to think that I can still be dangerous.”

Pulisic has been in and out of the team this season due to a hamstring injury, and he has admitted that it has not been easy for him, while he aims to remain injury free for the rest of the campaign.

“It’s not been easy,” Pulisic said. “I had a very tough couple of months coming back and forth from injuries, but I’m doing absolutely everything that I can to be on the pitch because that’s where I want to be playing. Right now I’m feeling great so I’m blessed and happy about that. I’m just hoping it continues.

“In the last couple of games, I’m starting to feel like myself again and my confidence is getting higher so I’m feeling good.

“My aims for the season are just to stay fit, be able to perform throughout the game and be available for my team in every single possible game that I can. If that can happen I think I can help my team and we can have a really good season.”
