Lampard told how to get best out of Pulisic

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has so far been extremely unwilling to use Christian Pulisic in majority of his matches.

Instead, he has opted for less capable players like Pedro who have been extremely poor. It seems Lampard has now been told how to get the best out of the USA international by his compatriot and former America player himself Kyle Martino.

‘There is a genuine interest here that measures higher on the excitement scale than any American playing abroad ever before. For Christian, I would imagine that has got to wear on him,’ Martino told Sky Sports.

‘Remember that this is a player who has played in massive games against Real Madrid and Bayern Munich where he has delivered. This is a very experienced player who was tossed into World Cup qualifying by Bruce Arena and ended up being one of the best performers despite having had no experience with the national team.

‘If you watched him for Dortmund, he is more often than not coming from the left with a bit of freedom and that brings a tremendous amount of threat in behind as we saw in pre-season. He is an excellent finisher and he is good with his dribbling at creating space for himself and others. He is cerebral so he reads the game well.’
