Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has opted to leave Christian Pulisic out of his starting XI over the past few games, with Pedro, Willian, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Mason Mount above him in the pecking order.

The 21-year-old is yet to show fans his potential at Stamford Bridge after impressing in Germany with Borussia Dortmund, and he is willing to stay and fight for a chance under Lampard.

The Mail on Sunday have claimed that that United States international will battle for a place in the team by trying to impress in training, but will consider leaving if he doesn’t see the right opportunity.

“I spoke to him two days before the Grimsby game and was very clear about the standards and we have to give him the fact that he’s moved country and moved leagues,” said Lampard earlier in the season.
