Christian Pulisic boasts the potential to become a “very important” player for Chelsea, says Antonio Rudiger

An enforced break during the coronavirus pandemic actually worked in the young forward’s favour, as he returned to full fitness, and three goals have been recorded since the restart.

He has been a lively presence in the side over the past few weeks, and Rudiger has told Chelsea’s official website: “I think Christian handles the pressure very well and you can see that when he is fit, he’s such an important player for us.

“If you look at his recent performances, since the restart, he’s been fantastic and is a real threat whenever he attacks the opposition.

“He’s scored goals but he’s also creating goals and he’s a big player for us in this moment. I just hope that he can stay fit, stay healthy and with more games I’m sure he will continue to improve even more.

“I think if he continues in this way, and stays healthy like I said, then he can become a very important player for this club.”
