Christian Pulisic's Chelsea troubles: Frank Lampard admits to 'harsh' decisions

Christian Pulisic's Chelsea troubles: Frank Lampard admits to 'harsh' decisions”

According to various sources, Chelsea star Christian Pulisic is no longer an important part of manager Frank Lampard's plans at the Stamford Bridge - which is why he is considering leaving the club in January.

United States worldwide Pulisic hasn't played in four of his club's last five matches and has spoken of his frustration at not featuring as much as he wants to.

The 21-year-old has been an unused substitute for the last three Premier League games before being omitted from the squad entirely for the Champions League win at Lille.

Lampard placed his faith in Abraham as Chelsea's central striker and he has quickly emerged as one of the Premier League's deadliest marksmen.

"We can all focus on Pulisic, but Callum's the same". I'm working hard in training, I want to be there, I hope everyone can see that, so with moments like this I hope I can make a case for myself. "I want to be starting every game", Pulisic said.

Lampard also went on to insist that Pulisic's £58m price tag does not automatically make him a starter, as several players on the team have their own separate reasons for justifying a place in the team. 'Pulisic has a price tag, Ross Barkley is an worldwide player, Mason Mount is an global player, Callum Hudson-Odoi just signed a new contract, Bayern Munich wanted to buy him last summer. Ross Barkley is an worldwide player. He's an worldwide player.

"You have to be honest and the players have to react to that and Callum has now come on with two assists in the games that he's come on and that's what you want to keep pushing".

After making the 64-million-euro ($73m) move from Borrussia Dortmund this summer, Pulisic has struggled to make an impact at Stamford Bridge, with some commentators questioning whether he is the right fit for the London club.

Yet despite setting up another goal in the Carabao Cup thrashing of Grimsby has not featured in the league since August. But if Lampard can show him enough love to keep him keen and the player can grasp more of his chances, however fleeting, then he will not need to follow the path of Salah or De Bruyne.
