​Pulisic says West Ham loss provided 'little boost' for Chelsea season

Chelsea star Christian Pulisic admits losing to West Ham United may have helped his side.

The Blues were given a reality check after losing at the Hammers, but they have responded since that game with two consecutive wins.

They are third in the Premier League and hope to maintain a top four position when the season concludes.

The Blues have picked up wins over Watford and Crystal Palace since the West Ham defeat.

"That West Ham game just gave us that little boost and say, 'hey, we've got to be focused every single game,' and we've got to be ready to go now and get results," Pulisic told Sky Sports.

"They're right on our tail now [Leicester City and Manchester United].

"But there's a lot of positivity.

"Finishing in that third spot is where we want to be, and we want to go on and win the FA Cup."
