Christian Pulisic was left smiling after ‘a very special day’ as his hat-trick helped Chelsea beat Burnley 4-2 at Turf Moor.

The USA international, who had not scored in the Premier League before Saturday, bagged twice in the first half - both with different feet.

His final goal, a deft header, helped the £58million signing from Borussia Dortmund make a firm mark on the top flight.

The American told Sky Sports after the match: “It’s unreal, what a day for me, but we wanted a clean sheet.

“I’m not going to think about it too much as I sleep tonight but that’s always our team goal.

“It’s obviously a very special day for me.”

By scoring his treble, he became Chelsea’s youngest player to score a hat-trick in the Premier League while becoming the second American to do so - behind former Fulham midfielder Clint Dempsey.

It capped a remarkable appearance from the forward, who has only made ten bit-part appearances since linking up with the club in the summer.

Pulisic, who initially forgot to claim the match ball from the referee after recording his perfect hat-trick, added of the blunder: “I just didn’t think about it but my team-mates reminded me!”
