Pulisic, 22, scored twice for Chelsea in their 4-1 win at Crystal Palace as he becomes the third-highest American goalscorer in English top-flight history.
And his USMNT teammates were at it too, plus the likes of Gio Reyna, Brenden Aaronson, Tyler Boyd and Luca de la Torre all put in impressive performances and Sergino Dest, Mark McKenzie and Yunus Musah all played significant roles from the start and off the bench.
Here we round up the American goalscorers from across Europe this week.
Pulisic scores two, pivotal in big Chelsea win
Christian Pulisic has scored three goals in his last two Premier League games and is back to his very best. He smashed home early at Crystal Palace on Saturday, then scored a late goal as he timed his runs into the box to perfection.
Take a look at the video above to see Pulisic in full flow.
Pulisic, 22, almost scored a few more too and the Pennsylvania native has shaken off his hamstring issues to become a key player as Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea push hard for a top four finish, plus UEFA Champions League and FA Cup glory.
USMNT and Chelsea fans everywhere are hoping that ‘Project Restart Pulisic’ is now well and truly back.
McKennie back with a bang
After not playing for Juventus against Torino last week due to sanctions after breaking COVID-19 protocols at his home with Paulo Dybala and Arthur, Weston McKennie jumped off the bench for Juventus and scored a few seconds after coming on.

McKennie, 22, raced clear of the defense and dinked home calmly for his fifth Serie A goal of the season, as his move from Schalke has gone incredibly well this season, even though Juve will not win the title.
Here is his latest goal, as McKennie has now been used as a sub in his last two outings and Juve have won both games to boost their top four hopes.
Daryl Dike can’t stop scoring for surging Burnley
That man Daryl Dike, 20, is in incredible form for Barnsley in the Championship, as he has now scored eight goals in 14 games for the Tykes.
On loan from Orlando City, Dike is attracting all kinds of attention as he continues to rip up England’s second tier as he has three goals in his last two games.
Dike sent home a diving header in Barnsley’s 2-0 win against Middlesbrough, as they have now won 11 of their last 14 games and have just one defeat in their last 16.
That has Barnsley in the playoff places with five games to go, and they have all the momentum in their unlikely push for Premier League promotion.
Young USMNT striker Dike is leading their charge.
