Chelsea star Christian Pulisic received extensive praise on social media for his standout Champions League display against Lille on Tuesday as he scored the Blues' second goal to cap a strong night.

The United States men's national team player was used as a forward by manager Thomas Tuchel rather than the wing-back role he has often been deployed in this year.

In his natural position, Pulisic has thrived against French opponents, regularly breaking at pace through the midfield before delivering a 63rd-minute goal in a 2-0 victory.
