Former Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves has revealed Chelsea’s best player.

According to Hargreaves, Chelsea midfielder Christian Pulisic makes Chelsea a better team when he plays.

Pulisic has struggled for starts under Thomas Tuchel but has scored three times in his last two starts for the Blues.

“Maybe he wasn’t playing his best or training the best but [against Crystal Palace] he played like a top player,” the former Manchester United and England midfielder told Premier League Productions.

“I think he’s the type of player that in [attacking] areas he can make the difference. I think he just makes Chelsea a better team when he plays.”

“Football is always what have you done for me lately, especially [when] the new manager comes in and you’ve got to do the work,” Hargreaves added.

“If you’re not training great or not putting up the numbers that you need then the manager’s going to pick somebody else.

“Especially in a club like Chelsea where you’ve got Mason Mount, Ziyech, Hudson-Odoi and Timo Werner all these guys, the boys have to be at their sharpest.

“You see that with Pep [Guardiola] as well, when you play you’ve got to play well and if you do you stay in.

“For Pulisic now, it’ll be hard to get him out of the side.”
