Lampard wants Pulisic to score more goals

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has expressed his delight with Christian Pulisic's efforts in their 2-1 win over Watford, backing him to "rack up" the goals for the Blues.

The United States international netted his side's second to make it four goals in two games to hand his side victory at Vicarage Road.

The 21-year-old found the target just after half-time to double his side's lead, finishing Tammy Abraham's low delivery from close range.

Though Gerard Deulofeu struck back with a late penalty, the Hornets were unable to deny Chelsea a record seventh successive away victory across all competitions.

Speaking after the match, Lampard outlined his admiration for former Borussia Dortmund man Pulisic's measured approach, as his side consolidated their top-four berth. 

"I love that Christian scored a goal from four yards out," the former Derby County boss, who is in his first season back in the helm at Stamford Bridge, stated.

"He could have decided not to go the extra mile and that ball flashes across the face and no one gets on the end of it.

"If he continues doing that sort of thing then the goals will rack up. His general performance was top as well."
