Christian Pulisic has not scored in the last eight appearances but the American striker is not worried about that.

During the summer, American forward Christian Pulisic joined Chelsea in the English Premier League.

But he hasn’t scored in the last eight matches played.

“It was a really good game, happy for the team, had a strong performance, they defended really well, and I was happy to make an impact,” Pulisic was quoted by Metro.

“”I was going to shoot last-second, but I saw Tammy wide open and then DeAndre [Yedlin, Pulisic’s US team-mate] made an unbelievable block, so maybe I should have shot it.”

He explained: “I just don’t have that scoring touch but I know it will come back.”

“[Frank Lampard] told me to do exactly what I’m doing now, continue to train hard, when I get my opportunity I have to take it.”

“I am really pleased for him,” Chelsea’s coach Lampard said.

“He is a hot topic because of his national team.”

“Everyone has got carried away with the short term but in the long term, there is a lot more to come. I am delighted for him,” he commented.

“He will feel good about that and he should do.”
