Lampard confirms Pulisic return and backs USMNT star to get best out of Havertz, Ziyech and Werner at Chelsea

Christian Pulisic, Chelsea

Chelsea are moving closer to a full-strength side after Frank Lampard confirmed Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech are both getting near to full match fitness.

American international Pulisic suffered a hamstring injury after scoring in August’s FA Cup final defeat to Arsenal, while Ziyech picked up a knee issuein pre-season.

“Pulisic is in the squad tomorrow,” Lampard said in his pre-match press conference. “He won't start the match because of the injury he has had and it has been a difficult injury. I am very keen to get him back in there so it is great to have him back, he is an important player for us. Hakim Ziyech is getting closer but not quite fit enough to be on the bench.”

Chelsea have had an anticlimactic start to the season following their huge summer transfer outlay but, with more pieces of the puzzle becoming available to Lampard, he is confident things are looking up.

“I think they will all bring the best out of each other,” Lampard said of his forwards. “Of course, it is a shame that we have not had Hakim and Christian at this time of the season. Christian has been with us for a year so he doesn’t have that bedding in period that he had last year.

“Hakim will bring something completely different for us. I think they will help complement not just Kai Havertz and Timo Werner, but the attacking players that we have because we will have to use different players over the course of the season.

“I am very excited to have those players fit. Timo and Kai don’t have necessarily positions themselves, but I have a clear idea of where I want them to play. At the moment injuries have not made that possible and they have had to be adaptable in those difficult times.”
