Pulisic on taking the #10 and winning trophies...

“It meant a lot. It’s no secret that it’s been my favourite number. It’s the number I wanted to be.

“Now that Willian moved on this season, there was an opportunity there. I spoke with the club and everyone felt like I was ready for it, and I felt I was ready, and it’s a number I like.

“So it was a really proud moment for me last weekend to wear it for Chelsea for the first time.

“I understand what it means and how much history it has — how many incredible players have worn it before me — but I see it as my favourite number. I just want to do well.”

Pulisic claims to feel no added pressure after changing squad number at Chelsea, with the youngster used to being a focal point for club and country.

He added: “I’ve been No. 10 for the national team for a while, as well.

“It’s not something I’m thinking about too much, especially while I’m playing. Of course I want to perform, but I put pressure on myself for other reasons.”

Chelsea are looking to Pulisic to help inspire trophy challenges in 2020-21, with a summer of big spending seeing tangible success demanded by ambitious owner Roman Abramovich.

“Chelsea is a club with a lot of history that always wants to compete and win titles,” said Pulisic.

“Our goal is to finish at the highest standing in the Premier League and win every trophy available. Champions League included. We've got a great group of guys, we're going to compete, and we're hungry to win titles.”

Asked if the Premier League crown is a realistic target for the Blues, Pulisic added: “Absolutely. Why not? That's right where we want to be.

“I think that's realistic, and we're going to compete hard to get those trophies.”

Okay...what prompted him to suddenly say that? 

It was a radio interview. Usually that means he was asked a question and answered it. Marsch’s demeanor and reputation are known quantities for anyone who cares to try to understand the context.

Would like to think it's not his intention to do so but his comments are the kind of comments that could stir an unnecessary shitstorm.

Christian is looking very confident and aggressive in the attack. He is also tracking back and helping in defense more than last year. I really like the progress he is making.

Lampard's response...

 

Then he goes on to employ, subtly, all the stereotypes Marsch detected.  But whatever. They all seem happy with each other now, so it’s all good.

Is it the same Hamstring that went out on him at the end of last season?

Was it his left hamstring back then? Looks like his left here?

At least he was able to walk off on his own this time...
