After their fourth-place Premier League finish and FA Cup Final appearance last season, the Blues enter the season led in part by U.S. Men’s National Team star and Hershey, Pennsylvania native Christian Pulisic, who starred during last season’s Project Restart with four goals, two assists and two penalties won in nine Premier League appearances. Pulisic, who’s currently recovering from a hamstring injury, will be joined in West London this season by several new signings, including Kai Havertz, Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech.
