Last week’s episode of the Premier League Uncut featured Chelsea and USMNT star Christian Pulisic. In the weekly segment, top players are briefly interviewed and asked questions by the fans. Ben Black was the host for this one and he got Pulisic to react to his new Next Generation FIFA card.

Black had asked, "If you and Timo had a race, who would win?" Pulisic answered:

“I never like to doubt myself. I think it would be close [if I raced Werner], but to be honest, Timo is fast. I’d say his higher pace attribute compared to me in FIFA 22, that’s pretty accurate.”

“I think I do pretty well defensively. As an attacking player, it’s normal, but it could be higher. Our team, everyone defends very well. That seems a bit low.”
