Chelsea: Christian Pulisic's highlights vs Liverpool prove he's the club's new Eden Hazard

Christian Pulisic was electric when he came on vs Liverpool

Christian Pulisic is on course to become the first real superstar footballer to emerge from the United States of America.

Chelsea splashed £58m on the 21-year-old and it was initially feared that the club had overspent on the winger.

Oh how wrong all the doubters were. In his first full season in English football since arriving from Borussia Dortmund, Pulisic has 10 goals and 10 assists to his name in just 32 games.

Last night against Liverpool, the American delivered one of the best cameo performances seen in the Premier League in 2019/20.

Frank Lampard brought Pulisic off the bench in the 59th minute and within 14 minutes the lightning-quick winger had an assist and a goal to his name.

Chelsea went on to lose the game 5-3, but Pulisic reminded the world that he is already the Blues' main man and the heir to Eden Hazard's throne.

All in 35 minutes, what a player!

Even Jurgen Klopp was smiling when Pulisic fired the ball into the top corner to make it 4-3 on the night.

Players like the 21-year-old starlet are a rare commodity and his fearless, direct style with the ball at his feet is eerily reminiscent of Hazard at his best.

Lampard will now know - if he didn't already - that his team for 2020/21 must be built around his electric winger.

That's something the manager and the Blues' hierarchy are already actively doing thanks to the signings of Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech, as well as the impending arrival of Kai Havertz.

It's an attacking lineup that will scare the life out of opposing defences and if Lampard can fix Chelsea's leaky back-line and sign a new goalkeeper, we could be talking about a team capable of challenging for the title.
