Tuchel has taken advantage of Christian Pulisic’s versatility and sees the benefits of being able to fill a range of different positions.


A little about the topic

The Blues’ head coach defended his decision to play the American forward as a right-back, with the player being asked to play for many minutes while laying out the numbers the player deserves. The USMNT star more at home in a wide attacking jetty has seen its versatility in good use in recent weeks, with Pulisic providing cover for missing teammates on a regular basis. Christian Pulisic was deployed as center striker when Lukaku was out of contention, while an unfortunate injury to Reece James saw him cut into a defensive dock.


What did Tuchel say about Christian Pulisic?

The Chelsea boss can appreciate why questions are being asked about his decision to move Pulisic around, but Thomas Tuchel believes there are many positives to be taken by a player who has only three goals and two assists to his name this season. Tuchel told reporters when asked if an international from the United States holds too many positions, that yes, it is true that they moved it a bit, but in the end they want to play, and it’s good if they can play more positions.

According to Tuchel, they can always argue that he would be more consistent or better if he had one clear position, but maybe then they will have less minutes or you will face even more competition because they have two or three players in each position. Firstly, this is good, it was also a bad sign, because it means that they had problems with the left and right wings with injuries, and Christian Pulisic helped them there.

They are happy with the impact Pulisic is having. Christian Pulisic can play for many minutes, he needs to play for many minutes, he has physical abilities that can help them. According to Thomas, of course everyone wants Christian to have numbers, everyone wants him to be effective, and they can improve everyone, they can improve that. And from there they go, this is the situation.
