Some Chelsea fans have demanded that manager Frank Lampard hands a start to this ace after his impressive performance off the bench vs Southampton.
Some Chelsea fans have called for club legend and current manager Frank Lampard to reward summer signing Christian Pulisic with a start after his impressive performance after coming off the bench in today’s 4-1 win against Southampton.
The 21-year-old arrived at Stamford Bridge this summer in a marquee deal worth £58m, as per BBC Sport.
The former Borussia Dortmund star teed up Michy Batshuayi’s goal with an exquisite pass, I don’t think many of Chelsea’s wingers could split a defence like this.
Pulisic’s assist came just over seven minutes after he was brought on for wonderkid Callum Hudson-Odoi.
Take a look at how some Chelsea fans reacted to the American’s solid cameo:
Pulisic been on 7 minutes and already contributing to goals. Lampard you seeing this?

To be honest, Pulisic deserves to start some of the matches

Pulisic has the most assists for Chelsea this season yet can’t get any starts because ‘he needs to work hard in training and show us he deserves to start’. Okay lmao.

Pulisic didn’t have much time to come on and show something, but made it happen with that nice assist. That’s how you start earning more minutes

Pulisic has only started three games for Chelsea in the Premier League so far this season. While the ace’s performance was solid today, it seems as though Lampard has a real selection headache on his hands.
Young sensation Hudson-Odoi deserves to start for his boyhood club, although veteran winger Willian is still providing the goods for the Blues and it would be a bit harsh if he was to be dropped.
The Brazilian registered an assist as well this afternoon, the 31-year-old also scored the winner in Chelsea’s Champions League clash with Lille last week.
With Lampard focusing on youth and Willian approaching the twilight years, it would be wise for the Blues to give more starting opportunities to Pulisic from now.
