Frank Lampard considers Chelsea star Christian Pulisic to have “so much talent” and believes the United States international can get “better and better”
The 21-year-old put in another impressive showing for the Blues on Thursday as they helped to hand the Premier League title to Liverpool with a 2-1 victory over Manchester City at Stamford Bridge.
His performance just highlighted the talent that he has and Lampard has opened up and admitted that there is more to come from the American International.
He told reporters when quizzed Pulisic: “Christian came in last summer. Lot of talk about it. He didn’t really get a break when he got in the team. He was playing really well and gets a really tough injury.
“I wanted to protect him a bit against Villa, see that he could make an impact. He did that.
“I always planned to start him against Man City because I know what he can bring in these sort of games and he brought it. He did really well.
“He needs to keep working, he’s a young player but he’s got so much talent and he can get better and better.”
He added: “There is a clear gap and it won’t happen overnight with one or two signings. There’s a lot of work that needs to be done.
“Liverpool and City have been works in progress for a few years now and they are getting a lot of success, a bit of success now.
“I’m not getting carried away. We can get better. We can be better on the ball. We can have more possession.”
