"I want to be starting every game" - Christian Pulisic shares Chelsea frustration

Tammy Abraham Fikayo Tomori and Mason Mount were all named in Gareth Southgate's England squad this week alongside Chelsea teammate Ross Barkley

Tammy Abraham Fikayo Tomori and Mason Mount were all named in Gareth Southgate's England squad this week alongside Chelsea teammate Ross Barkley

Despite his highly anticipated arrival, the winger has endured a slow start to life in English football and Lampard has warned the 21-year-old that his price tag is no guarantee of securing regular first-team football, citing the abundance of quality in his squad in similar positions.

The Chelsea legend had a hard start following the 4-0 thumping received at the hands of hosts Manchester United in the opening game of their Premier League campaign.

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has revealed where Chelsea will finish at the end of the current Premier League campaign. It is still early though and as was seen by his spell in Germany, the 21-year-old has plenty of potential so it would be risky to write him off immediately.

Pulisic is capable of developing into a World-class star and this was the reason why the Blues recruited him, initially in January 2019. Obviously I haven't been getting as many minutes as I would like. Pulisic was already tested at the highest level going into this season while the aforementioned trio were not.

When he signed, some hoped that Pulisic would fill the gap left by Eden Hazard, whose departure to Real Madrid was practically a foregone conclusion.

Murray climbs over 200 places as Djokovic stays top in ATP rankings
Murray took the top seed to a second-set tie break in Beijing before his challenge ended in a 2-6 6-7 (3) loss. He committed nine unforced errors as Thiem stormed to a 5-0 lead (this time majority came off the backhand).

But Chelsea boss Lampard insists Pulisic will get his chance as the season continues.

"What he needs to do is work, work daily, work to show within the group that he deserves to play".

Lampard said: "Sometimes I have to make harsh decisions and say something that I see can help their game but might not sound that nice because I want them to be the best, all of them".

"What I can say is to encourage him to keep working, because we know it is a new country, a new team, a bit of time of adaption is needed. Maybe that is why I get that extra special feeling, scoring here and the times I've played here I have won, so it's been a good place for me, but the main focus was winning and we did that", Mount told Chelsea TV.
