    Lampard backs Pulisic to be among Premier League’s best

    Frank Lampard has tipped Chelsea playmaker Christian Pulisic to follow in the footsteps of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Raheem Sterling to become one of the Premier League’s top-scoring wide players.

    The USA international had a relatively slow start to life at Chelsea as Frank Lampard looked to ease him into life in the Premier League, before bursting into form with a perfect hat-trick in the Blues 4-2 win over Burnley at Turf Moor back in October.

    The 21-year-old has once again impressed following the Premier League’s restart, netting in each of the west London clubs outings, his goal against Man City a particularly fine solo effort.

    Speaking about the wide man, Frank Lampard believes the youngster ‘definitely has the talent’ to go on to match the levels of some of the most exciting forward players in the Premier League.

    “I think he can be a really big player, because he broke through at such a young age in Germany and he made a big move, obviously expectations rise but you have to keep the age in consideration,” Lampard said at his pre-match press conference ahead of their FA Cup quarter-final against Leicester.

    “There is no doubt about his quality, we can see that and he is very keen to improve. He’s particularly hungry at the minute because he missed some time with an injury.

    “If he looks at players around him that have made that sort of a jump, he has the ability like Raheem Sterling to produce numbers from wide areas, like [Mo] Salah and [Sadio] Mane. He understands the work that needs to be done to do that. He definitely has the talent, he needs to get to that level.

    “I’m delighted to have him at the minute, he works hard everyday, he has to set his sights as high as he possibly can.”
