I have to be more clinical, says Chelsea star Pulisic

London, January 2 (AFP) Christian Pulisic says that he and his Chelsea teammates should develop a killer instinct in front of the goal if they want to stop losing points as they did against Brighton on Wednesday.

The 21-year-old captain of the United States lost three golden opportunities in the 1-1 draw, although it was not too expensive in terms of the race for the Champions League places, as both Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur lost.

Chelsea, which ranks fourth, has a five-point advantage over United, while the Wolverhampton Spurs and Wanderers are one more drifting point.

However, Pulisic, who scored five times in his first season with Chelsea since his 58 million-pound transfer from Borussia Dortmund, says Chelsea must correct its lack of precision when the possibilities arise.

We said part time that we had the chance to kill the game and we just couldn't, said Pulisic.

We couldn't get the goal and in the end they found an amazing goal.

So now it's about doing a little more to move forward, attack and create opportunities and simply have that killer instinct. Just a little of that, we are missing that.

Pulisic, who earlier in the season became Chelsea's youngest player to score a hat-trick in the 4-2 victory over Burnley, says he is to blame as much as the others.

I can also improve with that, said the striker. Simply be more clinical in the final third, find the right pass or shot and score the goals. That is both mental and technical. AFP SSC SSC
