Back Pulisic came, but again a feeling in his hamstring kept him out of a couple of games earlier in December. He returned at Wolves and looked lively, and although things didn’t quite come off for him when West Ham visited the Bridge on Monday, there were plenty of glimpses of the elite ability he showcased after Project Restart.
‘It’s not been easy,’ Pulisic said.
‘I had a very tough couple of months coming back and forth from injuries, but I’m doing absolutely everything that I can to be on the pitch because that’s where I want to be playing. Right now I’m feeling great so I’m blessed and happy about that. I’m just hoping it continues.
‘In the last couple of games, I’m starting to feel like myself again and my confidence is getting higher so I’m feeling good.
‘My aims for the season are just to stay fit, be able to perform throughout the game and be available for my team in every single possible game that I can. If that can happen I think I can help my team and we can have a really good season.’
