You’re not at Hazard’s level – Thierry Henry tells Chelsea’s Pulisic

Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry has told Chelsea star, Christian Pulisic he is not at the same level with Real Madrid forward, Eden Hazard.

He urged the US International to improve his performances against defensive teams in order to match the Belgian.

Pulisic was brought in from Borussia Dortmund as replacement for Eden Hazard who departed the club for Real Madrid in 2019 but is yet to fill the shoes of the Belgian.

Pulisic scored Chelsea’s second goal in their 2-0 victory over Lille in the Champions League last 16 on Tuesday evening..

However, Henry, Arsenal legend, believes the American can raise his game by ‘unlocking’ tight defences in the same way Hazard used to do for Chelsea.

“When I look at Pulisic and you see the clips, all of the clips [of his skills] are in transition,” Henry told CBS Sports.

“If you want to be big at this club, Eden Hazard could unlock something when the [opposing] team was low.

“And I haven’t seen that with him yet. He can do transitions, yes.

“But can he unlock it with a [Mohamed] Salah movement or, back in the day, Eden Hazard movement? I’ve not seen that yet,” he added.
