“I think I can play in a lot of the attacking positions within this team. [Against Juventus] I was in a slightly different role,” Pulisic said in his post-match press conference.
“I am not on the ball as much as I usually am or able to use some of my strengths.
“I think it is a position that I can play [false nine]. I can create a lot of space for my teammates and I am happy to play there as well.”
Though Christian Pulisic couldn’t score in their outstanding Champions League victory against Juventus, he looked rather lost as Chelsea dominated the Italian side.
It remains to be seen whether he will be deployed in the role more often but the American has all the tools needed to succeed.
