Frank Lampard praises Christian Pulisic after Newcastle
Chelsea beat Newcastle United 1-0 in the Premier League on Saturday.
In a largely forgettable game, Chelsea won the match thanks to a second-half strike from Marcos Alonso.
American international Christian Pulisic played a key role in unlocking Newcastle’s defence for Alonso’s match-winner.
As a result, Frank Lampard took the opportunity to praise Pulisic after the game, saying:
I am really pleased for him. He is a hot topic because of his national team.
Everyone has got carried away with the short term but in the long term there is a lot more to come.
I am delighted for him. He will feel good about that and he should do.
What Christian Pulisic said after Newcastle
Pulisic spoke to ESPN after the Newcastle game, saying:
It was a really good game, happy for the team, had a strong performance, they defended really well, and I was happy to make an impact.
I was going to shoot last-second, but I saw Tammy wide open and then DeAndre made an unbelievable block, so maybe I should have shot it.
I just don’t have that scoring touch but I know it will come back.
Chelsea 1 – Newcastle 0
