Chelsea forward Christian Pulisic has revealed the need to replace Eden Hazard at the club following his transfer from German Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund.

In a chat with the official website of Chelsea, Christian Pulisic talked about his new club and Eden Hazard.

Christian Pulisic has linked up with his new teammates at Chelsea though it must be pointed out that his transfer from Dortmund was agreed during the winter transfer window in January.

The 20-year-old forward is the third most expensive player in the history of Chelsea after the West London giants paid £57.1m to secure his transfer earlier this year.

Only Spanish goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga and Spanish striker Fernando Torres have been involved in more expensive transfers.

On comparison with Eden Hazard, Christian Pulisic told the Chelsea website he felt the pressure to live up to the standards set by former talisman Eden Hazard who left the club for Real Madrid this summer.

Hazard has joined the Spanish La Liga giants in a deal reported to be around €100m.

Pulisic scored his first goals for Chelsea after he netted a brace for his new team during the 5-3 win over Red Bull Salzburg in a club-friendly played earlier this week.
