What having Lukaku in the Chelsea team means for Pulisic

The Blues invested £97.5millon for the transfer of Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan and USA legend Brad Friedel believes the signing would help Chelsea star Christian Pulisic.

Friedel told Goal: “I think Christian’s bright enough and clever enough as a footballer to play alongside many different types of players.

“Playing alongside somebody who’s just simply as good as Lukaku is going to help and Lukaku will at times have to attract more than one defender because of his size, pace and strength, which could give Christian the opportunity of being in a lot of 1v1 situations when he’s attacking, which he’s very good at as we know.

“Having Lukaku will help any team and any player, and I think Christian will be able to take advantage of that without a doubt.

“If Werner’s going to play then I think Christian’s style will be a little bit different because of who his playing partner is, but he’s equally good enough to play that kind of style as well.”
