The US international managed to clock up a total of 42 appearances in all competitions, bagging five goals and seven assists in the process.

Pulisic has managed to amass 12 goals and 20 assists in 97 appearances in total for the Bundesliga outfit, a great return for a player who is just 19 years old.
