Pulisic has come back stronger after injury issues blighted him earlier in the campaign.

Frank Lampard has been greatly impressed with winger Christian Pulisic after Chelsea cruised to a 3-0 victory over Watford on Saturday.

The United States international has been in fine form following his return from injury and helped the west London club regain fourth spot in the Premier League after Manchester United had leapfrogged them for a few hours with a 5-2 win over Bournemouth earlier in the day.

Strikes from Olivier Giroud, Willian, and midfielder Ross Barkley sealed three points for the Blues and Lampard expressed his delight with the development Pulisic is making at Stamford Bridge.

Asked by Sky Sports about Pulisic and his similarities to Hazard, Lampard replied: "They can both go by players and are great to watch. Eden did it here and was sensational.

"I don't want to quite get on that comparison, but at the same stage, I don't want to take anything away from Christian. What he's showing is a real natural ability, a balance, speed to dribble with the ball.

"The next step for him is a better end product, more goals, more assists. But since the restart, he's already shown that, which is great.

"He’s had injury problems this season but he’s a good one, a really good one. I'm very happy with him."
