Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic has struggled to replicate his Borussia Dortmund form at Chelsea and looked broken down while on international duty with the US team as he stormed to the bench and burst into tears after he was substituted during the United States’ 2-0 defeat to Canada.
Pulisic has struggled to break into the starting XI at Chelsea and seems to be frustrated with Chelsea boss Frank Lampard for the lack of playing opportunities.
Report now claims another Chelsea winger Pedro is reportedly growing increasingly unhappy after losing his place not only in Frank Lampard’s starting XI and even the matchday squad.
At the start of the season, Pedro was a sure name in Lampard’s squad and started the first two games of the season against Manchester United and Leicester City, but the World Cup winner has only played in one of the subsequent six Premier League games.
Willian has been preferred by Lampard, and the return to fitness of Callum Hudson-Odoi means Pedro’s starting chances will be limited.
Pedro failed to make the match day squad for our last game against Southampton, and Spanish newspaper Sport claims that the Spaniard is not enjoying his current predicament at the moment and is no longer ‘feeling good’ in England.
Lampard has recently admitted that he’s finding it difficult to pick his team each week.
“I’m sympathetic to every one of my players. Every game, every selection, I want a group that’s going to be successful over a period of time,” Lampard told the media.
“To analyse over one game or three games or five games or ten games is difficult for me because sometimes the team will do the talking on the pitch, like they’re doing at the moment. I’m sympathetic to all of them.
“They’re not easy decisions I have to make every Friday, every Saturday, as the week comes to an end. I’m always thinking of the bigger picture and that’s all the players, not focusing on anyone individually.
“I’m sympathetic, yes. Some players will make you feel you need to be a bit tougher, some the opposite, you put your arm round them. I want the best for all of them and then I have to pick my team as I see it.”
