The scintillating form which the North American forward is in has prompted some commentators to suggest that Chelsea no longer miss Eden Hazard. One of the pundits who Pulisic has impressed his former player Robbie Savage, who wrote in The Daily Mirror that Lampard is slowly turning Chelsea into a force to be reckoned with and a highly entertaining side to watch. "Frank Lampard is doing what nobody thought was possible – he is making Chelsea better to watch without Eden Hazard. He has already turned them into the most watchable side in the Premier League behind Liverpool and Manchester City.".

Savage went on to add, "I like the way he has put an arm round Christian Pulisic, telling the £58 million winger his chance would come if he worked hard, and has been as good as his word. Lampard has absorbed the blow of Hazard leaving – and turned it to his advantage by giving Chelsea’s youngsters a platform to shine".

The Chelsea boss has put his faith in the young, emerging talents at the club such as Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham - two players who have been setting the Premier League alight this season with four and eight goals respectively.
