Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has been told not to play American international Christian Pulisic as a striker because the role doesn’t suit him.

Tuchel played Pulisic as a striker in Chelsea’s 1-1 draw against Everton on Thursday night at Stamford Bridge and the American international failed to create an impact in the game.

Former Chelsea player Craig Burley believes Pulisic doesn’t look comfortable playing as a striker with his back to goal.

“I didn’t like Pulisic in that role. I don’t think it suits him with his back to play in that position. I just don’t think he looks comfortable,” Burley told ESPN.

Pulisic is unlikely to play as a striker against Wolves on Sunday with Kai Havertz set to start after missing the game against Everton.
