Tony Cascarino has hailed quality of Chelsea star Christian Pulisic

Tony Cascarino has raved about the quality of Chelsea star Christian Pulisic, stating that his recent return to fitness is “massive” at Stamford Bridge. 

Pulisic, 22, has had a stop-start season so far this year due to injuries and little setbacks have been an issue during his time in the Premier league so far. 

But the £58million star (BBC) has shown some moments of brilliance since he joined from Borussia Dortmund, scoring 13 goals and supplying 10 assists in just 44 games across all competitions. 

The American speedster is a versatile attacker that can play anywhere across the forward line, but he’s particularly impressive operating from a left-winger position.

He’s started back-to-back games in the league and will now be hoping to build some momentum over the fixtures moving into the New Year.

Cascarino has singled out the importance of Pulisic to Frank Lampard’s side:

“Pulisic coming back is massive. I think he’s a fantastic player. I really think he’s a danger to most teams,” Cascarino told talkSPORT.

There are a host of talented individuals in the Chelsea squad that can make the difference in the final third, but Pulisic is the one player that can frighten opponents more than most when he’s running at them full tilt. 

Lampard does have plenty of combinations he can use in attack and has used many different variations already. 

But it would be great to see Pulisic get a long run in the side in his preferred role on the left, as he’s got the quality to light up the division.
