Frank Lampard was asked about Christian Pulisic’s future after he didn’t use the USA winger in Chelsea’s defeat to Valencia.
Pulisic was on the bench when Chelsea eventually lost 1-0 in their Champions League opener to Valencia, thanks to Rodrigo’s second-half strike.
Lampard said of Pulisic: "He is in the plans. We have got the squad and the wingers to choose from. With Pedro’s experience in the Champions League, it was a decision to make, but Christian is well in the plans.”
The 21-year-old signed for Chelsea in January but only joined up with his new team-mates this summer.
