Chelsea boss Frank Lampard admits Chelsea missed Pulisic!
Thw Blues signed the winger last year and in his first season in England he has been highly impressive. He has been out of action for over a month now and Lampard has admitted that Chelsea missed their attacker.
“It is hard to answer [on when he will be back],” Lampard told reporters at the King Power Stadium. “We tried to get him out this week and step it up a little bit but we had to pull out of that. So the break might have come at a good time because it buys us a couple of weeks.
“I won’t have an answer till we’re back training. Yes, [we miss him] because he’s a quality player and was having a really good patch pre-Christmas. But others have to stand up too. But, of course, we’ll be happy to have him back.”
Lampard was also keen on praising Reece James.
“Yes, he was good,” Lampard added. “That’s not new, that’s been his recent form. He had a small injury and missed the game against Arsenal and Hull. But he’s a weapon for us. He can attack with his crossing but we need to get on the end of them more.
“And he’s also very solid defensively. When you think of his age, you can get excited about Reece. There is a lot more he can obviously do but I’m really pleased with how he’s developing at the minute.
