Christian Pulisic is pleased to put his injury troubles behind him.
He is finally starting regular games under Thomas Tuchel with a bit of his scoring form returning as well.
He has struck the back of the net three times in the last 2 league outings. Tuchel picks him in his best position which is the left flank with Kai Havertz and Mason Mount next to him.
Ahead of the FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City, Pulisic said, “I think it all has to do with confidence and the way you’re feeling in the moment. Streaks are definitely something that can be seen in a lot of different sports.
“I kind of went through one at the end of last season, I felt, and I hope that I’m catching a bit of fire now. I think it’s definitely something – it’s just a confidence thing where you see one ball go in the net and you’re feeling good about it, then things just seem to come more naturally. I think that’s really what it is.
“It’s been a tough year, for a lot of reasons. Obviously, having injuries has been tough because I’ve been doing everything I can to take care of my body, and just try to be right for every game, and it really does hurt when I can’t be out there to help the team. But I’m feeling good and healthy now, and I just want to do everything I can to keep it that way.
“I love this part of the year, when things get really important and every game can have a big influence on your standing at the end of the season. It’s the best time really, when everyone focuses up and the games are usually really good.”
