Christian Pulisic scored a hat-trick in Chelsea’s 4-2 victory over Burnley last weekend.

Asked if Pulisic has become the main man now, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard told reporters on Friday: “Yeah I mean the thing with Christian was he pretty much started the season like that.

“He played the Super Cup, didn’t start at Manchester United, started the next few games. That’s the competition that we have.

“So people sort of seem to think that that was his debut against Burnley. It wasn’t. Far from it!

“He’s had input until then and he’s been a bit of a special case, as I explained after Burnley.

“Short break, big transfer, different league. But of course performances like last week give him the opportunity to throw himself in there.

“Let’s see him reproduce that sort of stuff.”
