Chelsea left full-back, Marcos Alonso, as revealed he doubted Christian Pulisic's ability to cope with the physicality of the Premier League.

The 21-year-old adjusted to the Premier League and produced top-quality performances which were unfortunately cut short by injuries. Alonso told Fox Sports he wasn't sure he could handle it in the beginning.

“I thought he was going to struggle a bit with the physicality of the Premier League, but he has done great,” Marcos Alonso said.

“He has missed a little bit of continuity to show even more and to keep improving but I think he is going to be a great player for Chelsea.

“Hopefully with this time off, he can come back stronger from the injury he had.”

The USA International joined Chelsea from Dortmund last summer in a deal worth around £55m and has scored 6 goals with 6 assists in 23 matches in all competitions so far.
