Christian Pulisic admits he is ‘having fun’ at AC Milan after scoring his third goal of the season – as he overtook every player in the Chelsea squad in the scoring charts.

Raheem Sterling and Nicolas Jackson are the current top scorers for Chelsea this term, with both men registering two goals in what has been a poor start to the campaign for the west Londoners, who have won just one of six top-flight games.

While Mauricio Pochettino’s side struggle for goals, Pulisic has impressed at AC Milan and has scored three times already for the Italian side this season, most recently in Saturday’s 2-0 Serie A match against Lazio.

Chelsea sold United States international Pulisic this summer for €22m following four seasons at Stamford Bridge in which he registered 26 goals and 21 assists across 145 games.

Reflecting on his strong start at AC Milan, Pulisic said: ‘We pushed hard, in the second half we were more aggressive and managed to win.

‘I’m having fun and things are improving from game to game. I don’t have a target in terms of goals, but I will try to score many important ones like today’s.

‘We have a good chance of winning the Scudetto, but we have to think game by game starting from the match against Genoa.’

Chelsea, meanwhile, return to action on Monday night as they travel to Fulham for a west London derby.

Head coach Pochettino is already under significant pressure and some pundits have speculated that he must win his next two top-flight games to keep his job.

After the clash against Fulham, Chelsea take on promoted side Burnley at Turf Moor on October 7.
