Chelsea have been told they can’t afford to drop Christian Pulisic from the team regardless of their reported summer spending spree after his impressive spell of form. ESPN pundit Shaka Hislop was full of praise for the American youngster, who put in another good performance against Leicester City in the FA Cup on Sunday.

Pulisic is starting to find form after a turbulent first season at Chelsea.

The American winger has had to overcome multiple injuries throughout the campaign, and his first-team minutes have been restricted as a result.

But since the Premier League’s restart, the £57million signing has started to come into his own, with two goals in his first two league games back.

Against Manchester City, he capped off a brilliant performance with a terrific solo goal, as he latched onto a loose ball on the halfway line before outsprinting two City defenders and slotting past Ederson.

But Hislop believes Lampard needs to keep the American in his side next season, because he provides so much going forward.

Speaking on ESPN FC, the pundit explained that Pulisic is proving to be much more of an asset now than it appeared he was a few months ago when he was out of the side.

“They can’t [afford to lose him],” Hislop said.

“The one thing he brings, and brings in abundance, is pace from deep in Chelsea’s midfield.
