He has been first class, Lampard praises Chelsea attacker after recent win

Lampard heaps praise on Pulisic

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has heaped praise on Christian Pulisic following the Blues' recent 2-0 win over Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

The Capital outfit registered their sixth league victory on the bounce on Saturday and Pulisic scored one of the goals in the 79th minute with his head.

Lampard had previously praised Pulisic for making runs into the opposition box with the willingness to score and he was once again impressed with the attacker's eagerness to make the difference

"I always believe he had huge talent and that he would be a great player for us. He has been first class for us. Scoring in the six yard box is a huge thing for a young player," he told Sky Sports.

Pulisic has bagged five goals and five assists in the Premier League and only Mohamed Salah has managed a better goal and assist contribution in the top-flight this campaign.

The 22-year-old is now expected to head on international duty with the United States where he is scheduled to face Canada and Cuba. His nation need to win both of those games to top their Nations League group.
