Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic is ‘too good’ for the club and is being ‘wasted’ under Frank Lampard.

That’s the view of former United States international Alexi Lalas, who is unimpressed with the standard of players Pulisic is playing with at Stamford Bridge.

Pulisic impressed during his first season at the club last term, scoring 11 goals in 34 appearances for the Blues.

However, his second campaign has been injury-hit and he’s struggled for consistency in an inconsistent Chelsea side.

But Lalas – who played 96 times for the US Men’s National Team – says his compatriot has shown he’s ‘too good’ for Chelsea and that the club need to sign better players to play alongside him.

‘I’m saying it now. Christian Pulisic is too good for Chelsea. His talent is wasted in this Chelsea team,” Lalas told the State of the Union Podcast.

‘In the loss against Manchester City last week, he was fantastic. He was the only player in Chelsea who tried.

‘He needs better players around him.’

Chelsea take on rivals Fulham at Craven Cottage on Friday, where Pulisic will be hoping to start.

The Blues have dropped to ninth in the Premier League, winning just one of their last five matches.

Lampard’s side got back to winning ways with a 4-0 win against Morecambe on Saturday thanks to goals from Mason Mount, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Timo Werner and Kai Havertz.
