Chelsea’s performance delights Lampard


Frank Lampard was full of praise for his team after coming from behind to get a win against stubborn Aston Villa.

The Blues went behind on the 43rd minutes at Villa Park, after the home team got a goal against the run of play, but Chelsea rallied back in the second half to give Lampard what the team wants. This win takes Chelsea to just three points behind third placed Leicester City who got a draw during the week.

Lampard has singled out Pulisic for more praise, “He was hungry, I know that and I felt for him. He has trained well. The ability to arrive in the box is a big thing. It is a difference between being a very good player on the flank and a top-class player. With Christian and Ross [Barkley] they both have trained well, I have selection problems, good ones. I had them on my mind to come on early in the second half”.
