The American was featured as a wing back in the game today against Arsenal
Chelsea ace winger, Christian Pulisic was handed more of a defensive duty today against Gunners, unlike his other games.
Tuchel is known for his ability to convert players into another position and handing them a situation easy to adapt.
Just like Hudson-Odoi who got the Wing-Back role, Christian Pulisic saw himself defending today by the commands of his boss.
But the player’s defensive abilities wasn’t that perfect as Aubameyang was always outrunning him to go deliver that superb crosses which always met an alerted Chelsea defense of Trevor, Zouma and Rudiger.

In explaining his decision to feature Pulisic in the role which is handled by Reece James and Cesar Azpilicueta, Tuchel told the media after the game;
“We wait for Azpilicueta and Reece [James] for this position, so we needed a solution for this position. So now is the time to see.
“There was the chance to give him minutes so that’s what we did.”
Cesar Azpilicueta is although back in training but yet to make an appearance for the pre-season but likely will be available against Tottenham Hotspur.
Tammy Abraham and Kai Havertz booked a spot on the score sheet while Timo Werner after failing to hit the net provided Havertz with the opener assist.
