The Chelsea star has also named his pick for the best Premier League player this season.

Since his move from Borussia Dortmund, Christian Pulisic has established himself as a key player at Chelsea. The player has reunited with his former boss Thomas Tuchel since the coach joined the Blues last year. 

“It’s been great,” Pulisic told Amazon Prime“I’ve obviously played with him [Tuchel] quite a lot, first at Dortmund and now here. He’s built a really strong team here so it’s great.”

Pulisic did not pick a Chelsea player as the best Premier League player so far this season.

“I think if you’re looking at our team there’s been some incredible performances, you look at Jorginho and N’Golo [Kante].

“But it’s hard to argue you with [Mohamed] Salah and what he’s accomplished. He’s a top guy too.”

When asked about his toughest-ever opponent, Pulisic responded: “It’s hard to argue against Cristiano Ronaldo but there’s a lot of top players. He’s one of the best to do it but there’s so many.”

Under Tuchel, Pulisic won the Champions League last season. Chelsea are in a tight race for the Premier League title this season. However, they currently sit third, six points behind leaders Man City.

The Blues will face Aston Villa on Sunday before meeting Brighton three days later.
