Former Chelsea defender Jason Cundy has slammed Christian Pulisic’s form for Chelsea, claiming that the 23-year-old hasn’t improved since 2020.

The American was tipped to bring something close to Eden Hazard after being signed for big money from Borussia Dortmund, but after a fine showing in the 2019-20 season, his progress seems to have stalled.

The forward who earns £150k a week at the club, has a return of six goals and four assists so far this campaign across all competitions.

Persistent injuries have halted his career, and when he came on as a substitute against Real Madrid, he didn’t have the desired impact.

Cundy hasn’t been impressed by Captain America, and has aired his opinion.

“He’s (Pulisic) not at that elite level. He’s had a disappointing season… He has not got back to anywhere near what he was doing at the back end of that [2019/20] season,” Cundy told talkSPORT.
