Video – Chelsea impressive against Watford as Lampard singles out impressing Pulisic
Frank Lampard was full of praise for Christian Pulisic after Chelsea cruised to a 3-0 victory over Watford.
Goals from Olivier Giroud, Willian and Ross Barkley moved the Blues back into the top four after Manchester United had briefly leapfrogged them with a 5-2 thrashing of Bournemouth earlier on Saturday.
And Pulisic, who has been brilliant since the re-start of the Premier League season, has been dominating all the headlines, with many in the media claiming that he now has the ability to replace Eden Hazard at the club.
Lampard was not keen on comparing Pulisic to former Chelsea forward Hazard but is delighted with the progress the United States international is making after overcoming the injury issues.
Asked by Sky Sports about Pulisic and his similarities to Hazard, Lampard replied: “They can both go by players and are great to watch. Eden did it here and was sensational.
“I don’t want to quite get on that comparison, but at the same stage I don’t want to take anything away from Christian. What he’s showing is a real natural ability, a balance, speed to dribble with the ball.
“The next step for him is a better end product, more goals, more assists. But since the restart, he’s already shown that, which is great.
“He’s had injury problems this season but he’s a good one, a really good one. I’m very happy with him.”
