Pulisic identifies out two aspects that can make him ‘very dangerous’ player at Chelsea.

Pulisic identifies out two aspects that can make him 'very dangerous' player at Chelsea.

Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic stated he can be a “very dangerous” player if he develops in two aspects to complement the dribbling skill that he is bold of.

After an excellent form towards the end of last season, the 22-year-old USA international unfortunately picked up an injury that paused his energy.

However, Pulisic has not been able to replicate it this season as his output significantly fell from nine goals and four assists to just four goals and an assist in the Premier League this season.

While some would dispute that Pulisic has not started frequently this season, he has played just 80 minutes less in the Premier League than in 2019/20.

Pulisic himself appears to be conscious that he will have to upgrade in that department.

“I’d say really how clinical and my decision-making,” Pulisic told former Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard about where he needs to step up, in an interview for NBC Sports.

“Constantly making the right decisions and helping my team score goals in the small opportunities that I get and really make the most of them.

“I’m confident with my dribbling and my skills. If I just continue to work on those things and become very clinical, I think I can be very dangerous.”

Being clinical is absolutely one thing that Pulisic inches behind several of his teammates this summer.

According to Statsbomb data (via FBref), Pulisic is one of the only two Chelsea attackers that have underperformed their anticipated goals metric (xG). The other one is Timo Werner — who is unsurprisingly the worst in this class.

The American has scored just six goals from 7.2 xG in all competitions.

In contrast, Chelsea’s most clinical finishers this summer; Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud have scored 12 goals and 11 goals from 7.3 and 6.9 xG, respectively.

Mason Mount (nine goals from 8.0 xG) and Kai Havertz (eight goals from 7.6 xG) have also outperformed their xG, albeit slightly.

Werner by far has had the highest xG at Chelsea at 17.7 but only scored 12 goals in all competitions so far.

Last season was the first time that Pulisic bettered his xG, but it also hints that he can be clinical and, expectedly, be very dangerous again.
