Christian Pulisic came off the bench to set up a goal for Michy Batshuayi in Chelsea’s 4-1 victory over Southampton on Sunday.

It was his first appearance in the Premier League since the 2-2 draw against Sheffield United at Stamford Bridge.

Pulisic had recently revealed he was frustrated about his lack of game time at Chelsea.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has assured Pulisic he would have more opportunities 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.”
