PREMIER LEAGUE RECORD: Christian Pulisic is Fastest American to 10 EPL Goals

The 22-year-old Attacker Reaches Double Digit EPL Goals in 30 Matches

Here’s something you won’t get tired of reading: Christian Pulisic made more history.


With his 93rd minute goal for Chelsea against Leeds United on Saturday, the USMNT attacker became the fastest American to reach 10 goals in the English Premier League. 



Just the fourth U.S. player to hit double-digit goals in England’s top flight, Pulisic did so in just 30 matches, smashing the previous mark set by two-time USMNT World Cup veteran Roy Wegerle.  who needed 49 games to tally his 10th with Coventry City on January 3, 1994. Pulisic was born four years later.


Since we’re talking about age, the Chelsea star is also the youngest U.S. player to the milestone. At 22 years, 36 days, Pulisic beat out former USMNT teammate Clint Dempsey who scored his 10th for Fulham on December 28, 2008 against none other than Chelsea.


Current USMNT general manager Brian McBride rounds out the list of Americans who have reached the 10-goal EPL milestone, doing so with Fulham on April 19, 2020 at Middlesbrough.
