Since Pulisic arrived at Chelsea last summer, he has formed a good partnership with Mount

England international Mount has been a top prospect at Chelsea since he was six and finally broke into the first-team this season.

American Pulisic, however, was just visiting the Blues, then bossed by Carlo Ancelotti, and only found his way back last summer after a £58million transfer from Borussia Dortmund.

And since the pair were reunited, they have formed a thriving partnership in Frank Lampard's young side.

The attacking pair were both nominated for Premier League young player of the season.

Pulisic scored 11 times and provided 10 assists in his debut season at Stamford Bridge.

He revealed the move was destined after releasing incredible pictures of his first visit to Jose Mourinho's Chelsea even further back, as a seven-year-old in 2006.

In a video posted by The Players' Tribune, Pulisic showed off snaps of himself as a wide-eyed youngster in awe, visiting Stamford Bridge for the first time.

Mourinho's side were well on their way to a second consecutive Premier League title.

And a young Pulisic could hardly contain his excitement.

Now a Chelsea star himself, he said: "The craziest thing is I remember going to Chelsea.

"I was very young, I was just going there to train with the youth Chelsea team and I remember being at the training ground, which I then a few weeks ago go back and see.

"I see the same thing and I'm like wow, it's crazy how full circle it came."
