The player tipped to be Chelsea’s biggest star this year and it’s not Kai Havertz or Timo Werner

Christian Pulisic’s first season in a Chelsea shirt was a very impressive one and Blues supporters have tipped the American to go even better ahead of the upcoming campaign.

With the introduction of more attacking reinforcements – Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner and Kai Havertz – there are plenty of reasons to be excited at Stamford Bridge.

However, the man tipped to bring the Havertz, Werner and Ziyech era to life is Pulisic – with 45% of Chelsea supporters voting for the USA winger to be named the club’s player of the season.

In a survey conducted by Reach PLC, talking about the upcoming campaign, 30% also voted for Werner, with Ziyech gathering 20% of the votes.

Similarly, Reece James has been voted as the most likely to be the “club’s surprise package” with 41% of the votes.

Kepa Arrizabalaga – who is seemingly out-of-favour with Frank Lampard – received 39% of the votes to shock people during the 2020/21 season, with Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham also having 8% of the votes.

Chelsea have been tipped by many to challenge the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City for the Premier League title in the upcoming season.

48% of Blues supporters believe the club will finish the season as champions, and 45% of fans think the side may have to settle for a top four finish again.
