Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has confirmed Christian Pulisic could play more at right wing-back for the Blues in future.

In the friendly victory over Arsenal on Sunday, the American international started as a right wing-back with Callum Hudson-Odoi playing as a left wing-back.

When asked after the game if we would see Pulisic more at right wing-back, Tuchel replied: “Yes, maybe. He played there with me at Dortmund and we played many times like this with Callum.

“Marcos wasn’t able to play today so we put Callum on the left side which I wanted to see from a long time.

“Callum can maybe be more dangerous from this position coming inside which he loves, and which he did today. So you know our situation.

“We have Azpi and Reece for this position [right wing-back] but Azpi only started two days ago and Reece hasn’t even started yet.

“So we need solutions because we start on the 11th against Villarreal and on the 14th is the season. We can’t try things then so now is the time to see.

“It was the possibility to give him some minutes and from here we go on.”
