Christian Pulisic made the BBC Team of the Week after his hat-trick in the 4-2 victory over Burnley.

Pulisic had struggled to make an impact at Chelsea until the game against Burnley.

“I said last week that Frank Lampard’s ability to bring on the youngsters at Stamford Bridge was starting to make an impact and I never even included Christian Pulisic,” Garth Crooks wrote in his column for BBC Sport. “The scream of delight after the United States international scored his first Premier League goal for the club told only part of the story.

“When he arrived at the club I thought ‘what’s the game coming to; we’re now spending £58m for an American!’

“This hat-trick against Burnley is starting to suggest that this was money well spent.

“As for Lampard, how many more of these impressive youngsters does he have waiting in the background ready to explode onto the scene?”
