Thomas Tuchel

says that the player needs more time to adjust after playing three games for his national team, although he finished the international break with the goal that he scored in the last match which shows that he is in good form.

Since Pulisic’s last game for USMNT was in the freezing weather of Minnesota and Chelsea’s next games will be in the warm weather of Abu Dhabi there have been concerns about the player’s form and Tuchel has talked about it.

"No, I just was aware of it today, I heard it today,"

Tuchel said.

"I understood it was a bit of revenge from the U.S. to the hot temperatures in Honduras.

"I don't know if I would have been out there coaching, I'm not so good in these kinds of temperatures and the chill factor was worse. So I am happy I was not involved – to scout this team was maybe even worse to be on the tribune.

"For him, to be serious, it is quite an adaptation now to go from -16 to Abu Dhabi and +24. And don't forget, him and Thiago Silva did not have a break so they've had some days off now. Christian will arrive tomorrow to travel with us and then we will see how he adapts to this extreme change."
