Christian Pulisic History and Highlights
His skill on the ball is clear to anyone who watches him play, but fans are yet to see Pulisic develop into the world-class talent that his potential as a youngster suggested he might a few years ago. Still, he is some way off his prime, and Chelsea fans hope he can push on to showcase the talents that are waiting to be seen.

Crossing the ocean early
While the USA doesn’t have the biggest “soccer” culture, there has been an uptick in young talent coming out of the country. Christian Pulisic played in youth teams in the states and was noticed by a few European clubs, earning himself a trial with Chelsea before he was a teenager, but it wasn’t to amount to anything initially.
He was 16 by the time he got his move to Europe, with German side Dortmund coming in for him and adding him to their youth yanks. He impressed so quickly that he was called up to the senior team midway through that first season and started playing for the side at just 17 years old.
The next season he became the team’s youngest-ever player to represent them in the Champions League. His substitute appearances became increasingly regular, even earning the odd start here and there while so young. By the 2018-19 season, he was playing for the team regularly and making a name for himself as one of the league’s most talented young players.
Moving to Chelsea
With Europe’s elite clubs circling, Chelsea knew it wouldn’t be possible to wait for Pulisic to fully develop his ability if they wanted to guarantee signing their target.
His youth didn’t prevent Dortmund from setting a high asking price, and Chelsea begrudgingly met their valuation of £58 million in January 2019 in the knowledge he was one of the Bundesliga’s most coveted players. As part of the deal, Pulisic got to finish his season with Dortmund.
When he arrived at Stamford Bridge, Pulisic announced his intention to replicate the form of Hazard, who had become one of Chelsea’s most loved players before moving to Real Madrid.
Adjusting to the Premier League
Chelsea were far from their vintage best when Christian Pulisic joined, but he still had high moments in his early months, scoring a “perfect” hattrick in October in a 4-2 victory against Burnley. Despite injury problems, Pulisic made an impressive impact over the course of his debut season, scoring 11 goals and providing 10 assists.
Over the next 2 seasons, Pulisic’s place in the team came under threat from a mixture of new arrivals at the club who played in similar roles and unfortunate niggling injuries.
Even when his playing time has been low, Pulisic has pleased fans with his ability to glide past defenders with the ball at his feet. When Chelsea won the Champions League in 2021, he became the first American to play in the competition’s final.
He plays a vital role in his country’s set-up, already having 52 caps and 21 goals under his belt despite being just 24 years old, sending him on a path to possibly set US records.
