Pulisic proving to be Chelsea’s best summer signing for this obvious reason

Christian Pulisic was Chelsea’s only summer signing, so it’s hard to deny he’s also been the best.

But even if you look back to our previous windows, it’s hard to deny he’s done better than most upon arriving at the club.

WhoScored give him a rating of 7.42 for his performances in the Premier League this season, the 14th best in the whole league. After a slow start he featured little for Frank Lampard, before taking his chance to burst back onto the scene in the last month.

He’s unlikely to keep up this hot streak, which sees him rated among the very best in Europe this season, but he doesn’t really have to. Even allow for a serious slowdown as the campaign wears on, his strong start will count for a lot.

Jorginho has come good after a slow start, Davide Zappacosta is already gone, Oliver Giroud is out of the team. Considering the flops we’ve had over the last few years, we’d say that Pulisic is off to a very much above average start.
