Chelsea manager Frank Lampard says there is “lots more to come” from Christian Pulisic.
The 20-year-old, signed for £58m in the summer, made his first competitive start for the Blues in Wednesday’s UEFA Super Cup final loss to Liverpool.
After setting up Olivier Giroud for his side’s first goal, Lampard believes Pulisic will deliver plenty more highlights for the West London club.
“Yeah I was pleased and there is a lot more to come,” Lampard said. “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.”
