Asked by Sky Sports about Pulisic and his similarities to Hazard, Lampard replied: “They can both go by players and are great to watch. Eden did it here and was sensational.
“I don’t want to quite get on that comparison, but at the same stage I don’t want to take anything away from Christian. What he’s showing is a real natural ability, a balance, speed to dribble with the ball.
“The next step for him is a better end product, more goals, more assists. But since the restart, he’s already shown that, which is great.
“He’s had injury problems this season but he’s a good one, a really good one. I’m very happy with him.”
Pulisic himself was wary of comparisons to Hazard post-game, stressing he’s just trying to be his own player.
Lampard was impressed with the way his players responded to a 3-2 London derby loss at West Ham in midweek
