Christian Pulisic has been in and out of the Chelsea team in recent weeks, and the young American seems to have lost favour again under Frank Lampard.

The Chelsea manager started the American international for Chelsea’s New Year clash against Brighton, and he was the first to be taken off the pitch, with the Chelsea manager introducing Callum Hudson-Odoi.

Despite having started the game against the Seagulls well at the Amex Stadium, the Blues lost steam in the second half and ended up playing a 1-1 draw with Brighton despite having taken the lead.

Pulisic has admitted that he should be playing better and also revealed that his side must learn to be clinical, experienced and know how to manage a game.

“It is both [mental and technical],” Pulisic said as quoted by Goal. “It is doing a bit more to keep going, attack and create chances and just have that killer instinct. We are missing that a little bit.

“I can do better as well. Just being more clinical in the final third, finding the right pass or shot and scoring the goals. After we scored the first goal it was just about continuing and just not stopping there, making it two or three and putting the game to bed.

“That was it, we said at half-time that we had the chance to kill the game and we just weren’t able to. We couldn’t get the goal and in the end they found an unbelievable goal. It was not just us that were tired, it was the same for them. It’s just about being clinical, experienced and knowing how to manage a game.”
