Here's what Christian Pulisic has said about Frank Lampard

Christian Pulisic says he had no doubts that Frank Lampard believed in him before his hat-trick in a 4-2 win at Burnley on Saturday evening.

Despite Pulisic's reputation as one of the most exciting young talents in Europe ahead of his move to Chelsea FC earlier this year, the United States international has found his opportunities somewhat limited since his move from Borussia Dortmund.

Pulisic started his first Premier League game since the end of August at Turf Moor.

The 21-year-old seized his chance to shine with a hat-trick inside 55 minutes against Burnley showing his talent with goals from his left foot, right foot and his head.

The summer signing opened up about working with Lampard so far this term.

“(Lampard) believes in me and he’s told me that,” Pulisic is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

“You have to keep working hard in training and earn my spot, that’s how it is at the highest level. I’m going to continue to do so. This is hopefully just the start.”

Chelsea FC have won their last seven games in all competitions to build momentum under Lampard.

The Blues are in fourth place in the Premier League table and four points ahead of Arsenal in fifth spot.

Chelsea will take on Manchester United in the Carabao Cup fourth round on Wednesday night.
