Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has admitted that he’s confused on whom to start in our next game against Burnley at the Turf Moor on Saturday evening.
Lampard has had two sure starters on the flanks in Willian and Callum Hudson-Odoi, however Christian Pulisic is now staking claim for a starting position.
Willian and Hudson-Odoi have been awesome in past games, but it was Pulisic who turned the game around after coming in as a substitute against Newcastle and Ajax. Surprisingly, Willian and Hudson-Odoi were both missing at the Johan Cruyff ArenA.
Speaking about who to start among his three wingers, Lampard said as quoted by NBC Sports: “The way he’s played he deserves a starting place regularly in the last few weeks but so do others and that’s what I keep saying, it’s a nice problem that I have.
“It’s brilliant that he’s coming on and making the impact that he’s making and of course he’ll get his starts. It’s the reason he’s here.
“But we’ve got Callum Hudson-Odoi who’s top class against Newcastle last week at home. In terms of creation, Willian I think I kinda declared him our best player in the great patch that we had over four or five games.
“They are good options for me and Christian is getting stronger and more in the groove, and you keep seeing it with players, some you have to give them a bit of time, the young players. But he’s playing well so he’s certainly in strong contention.”
