After Chelsea’s victory over Burnley 4-2 in the away field in which young American star Christian Pulisic brightly scored a spectacular hat-trick, Lampard said: “It’s worth helping Pulisic find the best for Chelsea”.
Pulisic got off to a rough start because the pressure to replace the departed star was Eden Hazard. In the midst of this, the American player was also burdened by the talent comparison that was commensurate with the record transfer fee of £58 million (the highest in American football history) when he parted from Borussia Dortmund to come to Chelsea in earlier this year or not, but will only play officially this summer.
Therefore, after eager to prove his ability but immediately met a staggering defeat early in the season when Chelsea was defeated by Manchester United (M.U) to 4-0.
After this match, Lampard coach almost did not use Pulisic, even making him could be forgotten because at the same time other young stars of Chelsea such as Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount or Callum Hudson-Odoi, Michy Batshuayi and the whole bridge veteran Willian is back to play great to help Chelsea recover from the defeat of MU
The American press therefore worried that his star would become a wrongful contract at Chelsea, and urged Pulisic to consider leaving the winter transfer window in order to get more opportunities to play.
However, Lampard coach actually had a plan to silently revive Pulisic, a player whom his teammates and the British and American press called “Captain America” based on the name of a hit movie. Lampard recently launched Pulisic back from the sidelines, and achieved his intentions as in the 1-0 win over Ajax midweek. It was Pulisic who helped Batshuayi to score the only goal in this match.
In the match against Burnley, Chelsea led 4-0 to 86 minutes, then suddenly the opponent took 2 goals back. Fortunately, the match time ran out so the home team could not turn the situation.
According to Lampard Coach: “These are 2 goals that came from our negligence. Of course, I will have to talk to my players about this incident, and make sure it doesn’t happen again. But this does not stop the assessment of Chelsea having a great match away from home, and the great shine of Pulisic.
