All eyes are set on Chelsea's new boy, Christian Pulisic, as he's got the task of filling Eden Hazard's shoes, and despite the American starlet asking not to be compared with the Belgian wing wizard, the fact is that Blue fans are expecting Pulisic to take Hazard's place in Frank Lampard's line-up for the coming Premier League season.

CPulisic has received the best endorsement ahead of his debut season at Stamford Bridge as former Chelsea No.10 Hazard believes Pulisic "can be one of the best."

The new Real Madrid player talked to The Associated Press, saying only good things about the player that would probably take his place at Chelsea. "He can be a star. Now he's at one of the best clubs in the world. He's a proper player. He can play football," were Hazard's words.

Pulisic arrived at the West London team for a club-record fee of $73 million. The 20-year-old winger has shown his skill and dribbling ability, and for Hazard, the US star can become a favourite of the fans.
