Christian Pulisic scored a hat-trick against Burnley when they last met

The last time Chelsea played Burnley in October, Christian Pulisic announced his arrival with the perfect hat-trick, which he says “meant a lot” after a slow start to life in England.

The American scored with his left foot, right foot and his head when the Blues won 4-2 at Turf Moor to get off the mark for his new club in his first start in the Premier League since August.

Pulisic will miss the return visit of Burnley this weekend due to a tendon injury, but he reflected on his breakthrough performance a few months ago.

He told Soccer Saturday: “Absolutely [scoring was a release]. It was my first goal and first start in a while. I was really happy when that moment happened, all those emotions hit me and you could clearly see it on my face in the celebration what it meant to me.
