Pulisic scores 1st 2 goals in Chelsea uniform

Pulisic scores 1st 2 goals in Chelsea uniform

Chelsea boss, Frank Lampard, has exuded concern over his side's defensive struggles after the Blues shipped in three goals in their 5-3 win over Salzburg in Austria.

Chelsea fans must hope Lampard has more success on integrating Chelsea's top prospects into the first team.

"It was a big relief to score my first goals for Chelsea", said 20-year-old Pulisic.


The duo are now surplus to requirements at the club after struggling to nail down a regular starting spot and have N'golo Kante, Ross Barkley and Mateo Kovacic all ahead of them in the pecking order.

Lampard will have his first real test against Manchester United in the Premier League on August 11. The Spaniard scored it from a Barkley cross in the 57 minute of the game.

As the Europa League winners' pre-season draws to a close, Lampard has made a decision to sell midfielders Danny Drinkwater and Tiemoue Bakayoko, the Daily Mail understands.


Standing at just 5-foot-5 inches, it would have been an ask for Pedro to head the ball into the goal, the winger instead producing a backheel to remember, spinning to fire home past the keeper.

And Mourinho reckons the pair's quality demonstrates why Chelsea won't need to go shopping for reinforcements when their ban expires in 2020.

Jerome Onguene and a double from Takumi Minamino got Salzburg on the scoreboard.


Meanwhile, Michy Batshuayi scored a fifth in the 88 minute to make it five goals for Chelsea after RB Salzburg threatened to make a game with two late goals. Chelsea are so far are unbeaten in pre-season having beaten Barcelona, Reading and now Salzburg.
