The Blues clinched their second continental crown last term by narrowly winning an all-English final.

Christian Pulisic looks back at winning the Champions League with Chelsea last season with great delight, saying the “whole thing was kind of unreal”.

Chelsea beat record winners of the competition Real Madrid 3-1 over two legs to book their place in the final of the Champions League 2020-21.

The Blues came up against Premier League rivals Manchester City at the final stage, and a sole goal was enough to seal the win for them in Portugal.

Pulisic, who scored twice and laid out two assists en route to their triumph, believes the continental glory has made his teammates more ambitious head of the new campaign.

“The whole thing was kind of unreal,” the American told Chelsea’s official website. “I don’t know, winning it has never really fully hit me I don’t think.

“Maybe it will in more time. I think it will take me a couple of years for it to really sink in!

“It’s just a really proud moment in my career, to be involved in a success like that.

“I think a lot of the guys will go into this season nice and confident and that’s really important, and also everyone is hungry to win more which is the best thing you can have in the team. We all just want to keep on getting better.”
