Oddschecker spokesperson Pete Watt: “Very few are in any doubt of the potential that Pulisic possesses, but these stats show just how highly rated he has become.”
“Frank Lampard has spoken during the off season about how the American could play for the likes of Real Madrid in the future and oddsmakers’ have fallen in line behind him, based on these figures.”
“After making the shortlist for Young Player of the Year last season – ultimately losing out to Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold – he is tipped to again be challenging for the honor this year.”
“However, he is also considered to be among the frontrunners for the main award, given to the best player in the league; in fact, only Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne have better odds to win the award that Pulisic – almost unthinkable this time last year.”
“And to cap off his quest for individual accolades, he squeezes into the sportsbooks’ top ten likeliest winners of the Golden Boot, given to the player who scores the most goals in the league.
