Chelsea boss Tuchel: Pulisic can be 30-goal a season player

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel believes Christian Pulisic has the potential to be a 30-goal a season player.

Pulisic, although a skilful attacker, has never been a prolific scorer challenging at the top of the goal charts.

The American's 11 goals for Chelsea in 2019/20 remains the best return of his career so far. However, the Blues boss believes he has the potential for much more ahead, if the 23-year-old can add a clinical streak to his game.

Tuchel said, "He's not that player who produced in the last three years 30 goals and it's a matter of time until he is that kind of player. We will push him to the limit.

"We're not pointing fingers but we struggle with over-performance in this area and our opponents have certain quality and efficiency on a normal level that is far beyond our level of goals and assists.

"Maybe we need to help in the way we attack, maybe we can help in the structure of how we attack. We will try to help. We are not blaming anybody, it's just a fact and we have to get our heads around it."
