After making his first appearance in over three months, Thomas Tuchel was content with Christian Pulisic’s performance.

Thomas Tuchel is extremely happy to see Christian Pulisic back to goalscoring ways as he helped Chelsea win by 3-0 over Leicester on Saturday.

The 23-year-old speedster was back in action after three months, suffering from Covid-19 and an ankle injury. This was only his third Premier League game of the new campaign.

The USMNT star immediately marked the scorecard with a goal for the Blues which was assisted by Hakim Ziyech. He sure made the German boss fill with joy, who believes that the striker is an added bonus to his team.

Tuchel told the reporters after the game: “That is one of his key qualities to arrive in the box. And not only in the box but the six-yard box.”

“He gives something of repetitive sprints, intensity on and off the ball. But he is at the end of the attacks.”

“He is hungry to score. He arrives in the box and this is where we need players to be dangerous and score.”

“I am very happy that after a long time when he was out from corona and injury that he is back and decisive straight away and I am very happy for Hakim, who also deserved to start. That he was again involved in an assist.”
