Chelsea maintained their good form after the international break with a 1-0 win over Newcastle United to keep their bid for a top-four place in the Premier League.

Christian Pulisic came on and changed the complexion of the game, with his incisive movement and clever passing.

Frank Lampard was delighted with the USA international.

He said: “I’m really pleased for him. He’s a hot topic because of the price tag. Because of his status in his national team, and his world status through that. And everyone has got a little bit carried away with the short term.”
