Michy Batshuayi and Christian Pulisic were second-half substitutes in Sunday’s win over Southampton, and the duo combined to score a beautiful goal in the 4-1 win against the Saints.

In the 89th minute of the game, Pulisic laid on a beautiful pass for Batshuayi, and the Belgium international wasted no time to score pass Angus Gunn from close range.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has reacted to calls for him to play Pulisic by insisting that everyone has a role to play.

Lampard said: “I get asked weekly ‘why is he not in the squad?’ and ‘why is he on the bench?’ when it comes to certain players.

“We need all of the players. You need the contribution of Michy coming on and getting his goal. He’s been training really well. Christian coming on with a great assist for the goal. Those players, absolutely we need them as the games come thick and fast.

“At the moment we are going well and keeping a similar core of the team. But we are going to need everyone and that means training at a level and being happy as a complete group when we come away and get a result like this.”
