Chris Sutton sending warning to Chelsea attacker Christian Pulisic

BBC Sport pundit Chris Sutton has said that Christian Pulisic has to prove himself in order to earn a regular run in the Premier League under Frank Lampard. The United States international made a positive beginning to the season where he was handed with a regular starting role but things have become difficult as the campaign has progressed.

In the past four Premier League matches, Pulisic has been afforded with just 10 minutes of playing time and that has resulted from the fact that Callum Hudson-Odoi, Mason Mount, Pedro and Willian are all ahead of him in the selection order. Speaking on Radio 5 Live, Sutton said that Lampard does not have an agenda against the former Borussia Dortmund man but he is certainly not a favourite with the Blues boss.

Daniel Farke hails the talents of Chelsea playmaker Christian Pulisic

Norwich City manager Daniel Farke has hailed the talents of Christian Pulisic and believes the attacker has the credentials to become one of the best offensive players in the world. The USA international signed for the Blues from Borussia Dortmund in January but he only made the move this summer after he was loaned back to the German side for the backend of the 2018/19 season.

Speaking in a press conference, Farke, who was formerly a youth coach at Dortmund, said that he has a good knowledge about the qualities of the forward, who initially developed through the reserve squad at BVB, he told: “Top class player. I would take him but we had no chance. We worked together in Dortmund, not directly together because I was not responsible for the first team and at this time Christian was with the under-19s but involved several times in the first team. He will have a great career, I am pretty sure, and this big money move was totally deserved. For Chelsea a great decision to buy him. He is one of the biggest offensive talents in the whole world.”

Pulisic joined the Blues after a couple of games into pre-season and he was impressive for the club with a run of consistent performances. The same has not been replicated at the start of the real campaign with just one assist from three matches but the 20-year-old should find the mojo with more gametime on the playing field. Chelsea are scheduled to face Norwich City on the road this weekend where they will be aiming to secure the first triumph of the new season. The Canaries have a weakness in terms of the defensive play but rest assured, they will offer a strong challenge to the Blues, who are yet to preserve a clean sheet in any competition.
