The Blues will take on Real Madrid in the next round of the Champions League.

Christian Pulisic has warned Chelsea rivals not to underestimate them based on their domestic displays.

The Blues have struggled for form in the Premier League, slipping to the tenth spot on the table. However, the pressure eased on Graham Potter when he led his side to the Champions League quarter-finals earlier this month.

The Blues will meet Real Madrid in the UCL for the third season in a row. However, Pulisic says his side could pull off another miracle in the European competition this season.

“I wouldn’t want to play us in the Champions League,” the USMNT star told ESPN. “We were in a similar situation the last time we won the Champions League… struggling in the league and a lot of people counting us out. Look what happened then.”

He added: “Has it been easy in recent weeks? No, but I’m proud of the way that the team has overcome it. The last week we’ve had, getting three wins in a row. You know how fast things can change.”

Chelsea will meet Everton in their last league game before the upcoming international break. The Blues will face Real Madrid in the first leg of their UCL semi-final tie on April 12.
