Christian Pulisic has admitted he's enjoying life in his first season at Chelsea.

The American, who has been one of Chelsea's stand out players this season told ESPN that life at Chelsea has been fun under manager, Frank Lampard.

“I've watched him (Lampard) a lot and obviously respected him so much as a player," he said.

"Now to have him as a manager has been good, and I've just been taking it all in and learning, kind of seeing what he has and what he offers to this team.

“It's been fun to work with a lot of these young players as well. So I think it's been a really good mix. He's told me to just keep enjoying it and be myself.

“I'm still learning. It's my first season now, kind of halfway through, so I'm just kind of learning to take it day by day, game by game and just focusing on the next opponent and just getting ready and healthy for the next game because it's always right around the corner.

"It's just a lot of competition, I think, in every game, within your team, and for every game, it's just been great learning from some of my teammates. And yeah, just being here in London, I'm just kind of taking it all in.

“I think the soccer culture here is what I've noticed (the most). It means so much to these people, just in the country in general, just how your team is doing. Not to say that's the case in Dortmund because that was some of the most passionate fans I've ever seen, but just the culture of the whole country, what this game means even around the holidays.

"Everyone's always talking about football. That's definitely impressive.”

Pulisic is currently injured by is set to return to action in a couple of weeks.
