With Eden Hazard having left Chelsea, the club will be looking to someone else to provide the goalscoring inspiration.
The Christian Pulisic was signed for a fee reported to be around £57.6 million back in January from German club Borussia Dortmund. The 20-year-old was at the time touted as a potential replacement for the Belgian, and after such a big-money move, Chelsea fans are getting excited.
The new season is just around the corner, and the club’s official Twitter account asked the fans how many goals and assists they thought the American international would get next season.
???? PREDICTION TIME ????
You’ve seen him in the #GoldCup and soon you’ll see him in Chelsea Blue…

Fans were full of optimism, with many of the Twitter users tweeting double-figure numbers in response to the tweet.
Pulisic is currently away on international duty, and so may miss the opening weeks of next season.
Here is a selection of tweets from fans, who clearly hold high hopes for the 20-year-old signing from Germany:
Will beat Pedro’s (9) and Willian’s (8) goal scoring league record for Chelsea.
