Pulisic, 21, was brought into the fold in the place of Callum Hudson-Odoi for the trip to Turf Moor, with Lampard acknowledging that he needs to balance out playing time ahead of tomorrow’s Carabao Cup visit of Manchester United.

”It’s a balance, I always think one, two or three games ahead,” Lampard said.

”But there’s an argument that we are doing okay, they are hungry, and I felt one change was enough today.

”It’s important we keep our feet on the ground. We played well but we can play better.”
