Chelsea boss Frank Lampard believes Christian Pulisic can get “better and better” as part of an exciting young Chelsea side following his brilliant performance in the 2-1 victory over Manchester City on Thursday night.
Lampard said: “Christian came in last summer. Lot of talk about it. He didn’t really get a break when he got in the team. He was playing really well and gets a really tough injury.
“I wanted to protect him a bit against Villa, see that he could make an impact. He did that.
“I always planned to start him against Man City because I know what he can bring in these sort of games and he brought it. He did really well.
“He needs to keep working, he’s a young player but he’s got so much talent and he can get better and better.”
