Christian Pulisic assures Frank Lampard, Blues fans as Chelsea face Arsenal in FA Cup final

Christian Pulisic has assured Frank Lampard and Chelsea fans that he is fully fit to face Arsenal in Saturday’s FA Cup final.

The American attacking midfielder has been in great form since the end of lockdown, scoring four goals and creating two assists to help his side to a fourth-place finish in the Premier League.

There were some fears he could miss the game against the Gunners, however, as he was substituted with 12 minutes to go of Sunday’s 2-0 win against Wolves.

But speaking to ESPN, Pulisic said: “I never had a real issue. I’m 100% fit.”

He also added that his side were making special plans to deal with the threat of his former Dortmund teammate Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has scored 28 goals in all competitions for Arsenal this season.

“I know him quite well,” Pulisic continued.

“He is incredible, the way he gets in good areas. He’s always dangerous, so we are definitely going to have to be cautious of that, and they have some other good players. But he is definitely one guy that you have to look out for.

“We’ll always be good friends. I played together with him for a long time. Right now, we are definitely focused and want to win. It is going to be a good battle; and not so much on the pitch, but we will always be friends off the pitch.”
