Pulisic are gearing up for the United States’ first three-goal match in World Cup qualifying that begins against El Salvador on Friday.

Captain America said: “Obviously this year has been up and down. Not exactly where I want to be and how I want things to be right now.

“I will keep going and it doesn’t affect me when I come here. So I’m very pleased to be here.

“When I came to the national team, it was ‘How are things going? Chelsea? ‘ and ‘What is this’ and ‘What is that.’ Really hard.

“I’ve learned a lot and I’m ready to hope to be in the next few games where I feel more comfortable.”

Pulisic has made 19 appearances for Chelsea this season and has scored three goals.

But he found it difficult to get the games together and has been moved to take on several positions – adding to his uncertainty.

Pulisic’s Clubmate Romelu Lukaku went public before Christmas with an unauthorized TV interview in which he claimed to be dissatisfied and uncomfortable with the playing system under Tuchel.

Lukaku was fined a week’s salary of around £325,000 for his betrayal and issued a public apology.

Pulisic’s comments are not too drastic and he does not claim to be unsettled at Stamford Bridge.

But the former Borussia Dortmund star is using international duty to try to relieve frustrations with life at Chelsea behind his back.

The US follows tomorrow’s game with games against Canada and Honduras before Pulisic reports back to Tuchel in London on February 4.

They finished second in the CONCACAF qualifying group with the top three going to the finals in December.

The winger said: “Going to the camps in the US did not affect me too much. I was ready to come here and do whatever I could to help this team so I didn’t think about it.

“I would say I have two sides, especially when people ask how you are. There’s football on one side and people on the other. That person is even more important to me and I’m fine in that sense. It is sometimes a lot”.
