GW32 Kings to watch: Christian Pulisic

The Scout says regular role has revived Chelsea midfielder’s prospects in Fantasy

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 32 of Fantasy Premier League.

Christian Pulisic (CHE) £8.2m

The Chelsea midfielder’s fortunes in Fantasy have been revived now that he has finally established himself as a regular under new head coach Thomas Tuchel.

Pulisic failed to start any of the German’s first nine Premier League matches in charge, with all six of his appearances coming as a substitute.

However, he has now started each of the Blues’ last three top-flight contests.

The US international has seized his opportunity, scoring three of his four goals this term in his last two outings.

That includes his season-high haul of 15 points in a 4-1 win at Crystal Palace last weekend.

Pulisic's first goal v Palace

The underlying statistics highlight Pulisic’s impact since he first started for Tuchel in Gameweek 28.

His six shots in the box and five shots on target both rank second among Chelsea players in that period.

Meanwhile, his three big chances and six key passes are joint-top with Kai Havertz (£8.2m) and Reece James (£5.0m) respectively.

Key figure

Pulisic's overall numbers since Tuchel took charge in Gameweek 20 further highlight his importance to the Blues' attack.

When selected by Tuchel, he has been involved in a team-leading 67 per cent of Chelsea’s goals.

And his average of 112.3 minutes per goal is also the best, with Mason Mount (£7.2m) next on 209 minutes.

A home encounter with Brighton & Hove Albion looks encouraging for Pulisic.

The Seagulls have struggled defensively on the road, failing to keep a clean sheet in their last four away matches.

With his growing influence on the Chelsea attack, Pulisic can take advantage of that weakness, helping him to have a decisive once again in Gameweek 32.
