Chelsea ace Pulisic: I can't compare myself with Hazard

Chelsea ace Christian Pulisic is eager to avoid comparisons with Blues hero Eden Hazard.

It's been suggested Pulisic was signed to replace Hazard, who left Chelsea for Real Madrid last summer.

But Pulisic told ESPN: "He's an incredible player.

"It is quite obvious what he has achieved in this club and I am not trying to compare myself to that. The important thing for me is to win matches and be able to influence.

"I am really happy that I have been able to do it lately and my style will continue to be attack-oriented and creative. I'm happy as long as I can help the team in some way."
