Christian Pulisic tipped to be as good as Liverpool & Man City’s best & Timo Werner’s double in his final Bundesliga match

Leicester vs Chelsea

Chelsea, after their 2-1 win against Man City which confirmed Liverpool as champs, are back in action on Sunday in the FA Cup.

The Blues travel to the King Power Stadium to take on Leicester City.

In the Premier League, one point separates Leicester in 3rd (55 points) and Chelsea in 4th (54 points).

 

Christian Pulisic tipped to be as good as Liverpool & Man City’s best

In his press conference before the Leicester game, Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has sung the praises of American international Christian Pulisic.

Pulisic scored a wonderful solo goal against Man City last week.

Moreover, the 21-year-old also scored in Chelsea’s win at Burnley the game beforehand.

Now, Lampard has raised the expectations around Pulisic, as he’s claimed he can become as influential as Liverpool and Man City’s best players:

I think he can be a really big player. Because he broke through so young in Germany and he moves to us, people’s expectations rise, but we have to take his age into consideration.

There’s no doubt in his quality and you can see that. He is very keen to work and improve. He is particularly hungry at the minute because of his injury.

And if he wants to learn, and he does, on the training pitch and how he sees the game, he needs to look at the players he sees around him who have made that sort of jump like the Raheem Sterlings, Sadio Manes and Mo Salahs who are now producing numbers [of goals] from wide areas.

It is important that he understands the work he needs to do to do that because he definitely has the talent to do it. He needs to try and get to that level and I am delighted to have him at the minute. He works hard every day and he has to set his sights as high as he can.

 

Timo Werner’s double in his final Bundesliga match

He’s now on his way to Chelsea.

On Saturday, on the final day of the 2019-20 season, Timo Werner played his final match for RB Leipzig.

Leipzig beat Augsburg 2-1 on the road, and Chelsea’s Werner scored both goals.

Werner has now scored 95 goals for Leipzig, which is a new club record.

After the game, Werner interrupted the post match press conference of RB Leipzig’s Julian Nagelsmann as the striker embraced his manager in public for one last time.

Werner also expressed his emotions on leaving Leipzig in his own post match interview, while Chelsea’s new striker celebrated his Leipzig team mates on social media too.
