Chelsea manager Frank Lampard said Christian Pulisic’s performance in the UEFA Super Cup on Wednesday was just a taste of things to come from the American.
Pulisic made his first start for the Blues, who lost 5-4 on penalties after a 2-2 draw over 120 minutes.
Per Goal, Lampard said of his performance:
“Yeah I was pleased, and there is a lot more to come. The expectancy is right, he is a big signing for us but you have to remember his age. He’s 20 and come into the league, into this game, against Liverpool, one of the most intense teams in football.
“It took a bit of time early in the game to get his feeling. But once he did, you could see his confidence in carrying the ball and to create.
“I am really happy with him. There is lots, lots more to come. Again, [he’s showing] all the good signs for what he can be for the club.”
Although the goal didn’t stand, it was a reminder of what Pulisic can do on the ball and the trouble he can cause opposition defences.
