'I want more goals': Christian Pulisic speaks about areas he wants to improve

Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic said he has set his sights on ramping up his creative output as he talked about areas he wants to improve on.

The 21-year-old is now back in London after spending a few weeks in the United States to spend time with his family as well as recovering from an abductor injury.

Pulisic has been out since New Year’s Day and, speaking to Sky Sports, he admitted that he had not taken his injury “as seriously as he should have” which led to a few setbacks.

As the Premier League restart seems to get closer, he believes he is now approaching a full recovery.

“It was a frustrating process but I’m feeling good and ready to go again,” he added.

Considering this has been his first season in the Premier League, the United States international has done fairly well; netting five times and providing two assists in 16 Premier League appearances.

But Pulisic is still hungry for more and it could not be much better than having the Premier League all-time top-scoring midfielder in Frank Lampard as his manager

He said: “I want to learn to be even more clinical in front of goal continue to boost my numbers, get more goals and assists.

“I want to be stronger on the ball, being able to hold off players and those are two areas that I’m definitely working on.”

Pulisic also spoke about the competition for starting spots, saying: “I think it’s great to have friendly competition.

“They’re all great guys and it’s great to be learning from them and also getting to play with Callum (Hudson-Odoi).  It’s a strong area of our team.”
