Since arriving at Stamford Bridge, it is fair to say the Chelsea support have been waiting to see exactly what our American signing, Christian Pulisic, can bring to the team.

The American international has struggled to make an impact and questions were starting to be asked as to whether he had the appetite for English football.

But, suddenly, things have started to click for the 21-year-old.

On Saturday, Pulisic provided the catalyst that saw Chelsea, finally, break down a stoic Newcastle defence.

Last night, as Chelsea sensed that Ajax were beatable in their own back yard, Frank Lampard decided to give Pulisic the chance to show what impact he could have and he did just that.

Driving forward Pulisic showed that the Ajax defence were fallible and one foray forward saw the American create enough space for a superb ball to be delivered into the six-yard area which saw another substitute, Michy Batshuayi, get the goal that gave Chelsea a wonderful victory.

Following the game, and as reported by The BBC, Frank had nothing but praise for the provider and the scorer of Chelsea’s winning goal, remarking:

“The subs were second to none.

“Sometimes the hardest thing is leaving someone out. But it’s great for the spirit of the squad when subs come on and have an impact like that.

“Christian’s assist is as important as the finish, and the fact the sub scored makes me so happy.”

Lampard now has a difficult decision to make, who, for the upcoming fixture against Burnley (a) this weekend, should he give the wide positions to?

Perm any two from the three of Hudson-Odoi, Willian and Pulisic it would seem.

But, who would you go for?

  • christian pulisic is an amazing player. i think the best of him will come from a consistent play, i think Lampard should play Pulisic and Odoi , mount should be a” Super sub”. UP BLUES!!!

    I think it’s crystal clear that the young lad called Christian paulisic has the potential,the synergy,chemistry and enthusiastic
    professionalism to exploits and gives more than our former player Eden hazard.
    I feel it’s time for the Chelsea super Frankie to start this young lad in his first eleven
    he has done it over and over again
    I must confessed the young lad is ausome and fantastic

  • I discover Hudson and pulisic are not really the same type of players, both bring different things to the table…
    Hudson is more of a winger, a little creative, pulisic is also a little winger but plays more like a number 10 from the wings.

    Fans world wide need to understand that he is still young and coming into a new team, country, culture. He has to adapt and improve. The potential is there, no doubt… He just need time outside limelight to come in… And so far lampard has handled him OK… But he still have to do more… If pulisic got the spaces and chances odoi had in the first have… The game would have been finished..

  • I think pulisic and odoi both should start right wing and left wing these young guys are explosive if given chance to play together,abit ageing willian was wasteful for the last two matches should come on as supersub. CHELSEA 4 EVER

  • Today, he got his first premier league goal and it was a hat trick… You can see his play, he is different from odoi though both are decent dribblers. To me, he is a better goal scorer than odoi…. He needs time… Just needs fans to support him, and not crucify him in the next match.
