With the departure of Eden Hazard to Real Madrid, Chelsea fans have compared US starlet, Christian Pulisic as Hazard's replacement for the Blues. A hard task in hand for the 20-year-old winger who has finally joined his new team after the 2019 Gold Cup.

Sky Sports talked with the American international in Japan who took the chance to appeal to Chelsea fans not to compare him with the Belgian forward.

"Eden was amazing, and he did so well for this club, as you could see last season and the whole time he's been here. He was an incredible player for Chelsea. For me, it's coming in as my own player, proving myself and doing the best I can to help this team. I'm not here to compare or anything."

The American signed with the Blues during the winter transfer window for a record $73 million deal becoming the most expensive US Soccer player ever but remained with Borussia Dortmund for the remainder of the 2018-19 season.

Pulisic made his Chelsea debut on Friday in the defeat against Kawasaki Frontale during the Blues Japan preseason tour. Their stint in Japan ends on Tuesday where they face FC Barcelona before heading back to London.
