Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic is hoping the first full pre-season of his Chelsea career will help him start the season in top form.
The American international admitted hitting the ground running at the start of the season is his goal for the new season.
“I think that’s going to be a big positive for me, so I’m looking forward to the start of the season,” said Pulisic.
“This year is my first real full pre-season at Chelsea and it’s just given me a good chance to get my full fitness and for me to get 100 per cent fit and ready to play 90 minutes once the season begins.
“That’s the aim for me, just trying to get my body in a good place where I can be available as much as possible this season.
“Hitting the ground running at the start of the season is the goal, of course. It’s nice to be able to have a full pre-season this time and get nice and fit and be 100 per cent ready in time for the start of the season.”
