Frank Lampard was full of praise for Christian Pulisic after Chelsea‘s 3-0 win over Watford in the Premier League. The USA international has been in superb form since the return of the league in June, leading Chelsea to four victories in five games. Media in England are already comparing Pulisic to Eden Hazard, but Lampard isn’t keen on comparing the two.
“They can both go by players and are great to watch. Eden did it here and was sensational”, Lampard said when asked on the similarities between the two. “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.” Chelsea regained their fourth place in the Premier League with their win over Watford and the Blues now have 57 points from 33 games.
