Frank Lampard admits Christian Pulisic’s performances from the bench in recent weeks mean he is in contention for a starting role at Chelsea

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard says Christian Pulisic deserves a starting place following his “brilliant impact” from the bench in recent games.

The American winger, who was signed from Borussia Dortmund over the summer, has not started a Premier League or Champions League game since Chelsea’s 2-2 draw with Sheffield United in August, after which he wasn’t used in the next five matches in those competitions.

However, the 21-year-old has worked his way back into Lampard’s plans, making a positive impact from the bench in Chelsea’s last three games, including an assist for the goal at Ajax on Wednesday that extended their winning streak to six matches.
