Despite coming off the bench in the second half against Liverpool, Christian Pulisic was Chelsea’s best player in our 5-3 defeat at Liverpool on Wednesday night.
The American international scored and provided the assist for Tammy Abraham’s goal.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was impressed with the performance of Pulisic against Liverpool and revealed the American will be a big player for the Blues in the remaining games of the season and also in future.
“He is hugely important,” Lampard said about Pulisic.
“He has had that impact. I was here for Eden’s first year and it’s not easy to come into the Premier League, even for Eden in that first year, and adapt to the Premier League.
“Christian has had his moments. Since mid-season he’s had a really good patch, since restart he has been in incredible form.
“Only the injury he picked up in the Norwich game has kept him out of the semi-final when he is flying. Today he comes on and has 40 minutes, with the injury, which is great to show the quality that he has been showing.
“He’s so young, he has such natural talent. He scores goals, he creates goals and he is a big player for us.
“Delighted to see him come through fit. Clearly he will be a big player for us in these next few games but going forward as well.”
