Frank Lampard says he has Selection Problems

The dream of every top coach is to have a pool of talented players to select from whenever a match beckons and that is the dream Frank Lampard is living at Chelsea football club. During the post-match news chat on Sunday, the manager admitted that he is having selection problems.

The former England international stated this while acknowledging the brilliance of Christian Pulisic who came into Chelsea‘s match against Aston Villa on the 55th minute and became an instant hit for the club that was trailing.

Chelsea restarted the season that has been on suspension since March 13 on almost a losing note when they ended the first half of the match 1-0 courtesy of the 43rd-minute goal of Villa’s Kortney Hause. The goal of House didn’t justify the tempo of the game because Chelsea was the most impressive team but couldn’t convert their chances to the much-needed goals.

When the proceedings resume for the second half, Frank Lampard was condemned to do something extraordinary to change the look of the game. This was necessary because a loss would have put more pressure on them as occupants of the 4th spot on the league table.

Hence, the Chelsea coach introduced Christian Pulisic, an American soccer star who is gradually becoming a super sub at Chelsea. As Franky introduced him at the frontline; he also introduced
Ross Barkley and the game changed within 4 minutes.

From the blues, the captain of the side, Cesar Azpilicueta found his mojo and gave a pinpoint cross to Pulisic and the American soccer star made no mistake and ended it into the net to make it 1-1. In less than three minutes, Pulisic assisted Olivier Giroud who also made no mistake and buried the goal convincingly to give the visitors the desired victory.

The victory has further established Chelsea’s place in the top four on the league table as they are 5 points clear from Manchester United that are chasing the top four from the 5th spot.
