Some Chelsea fans on Twitter have shown their appreciation for Christian Pulisic in preparation of their Carabao Cup showdown.

The official Chelsea Twitter account shared an article on their website in which the winger reveals the belief manager Frank Lampard has shown in the American.

This tweet then gathered a lot of replies from happy Chelsea fans who were keen to show their appreciation for the 22-year-old.

Here’s a sample of Chelsea fans backing Christian Pulisic:

In Pulisic’s previous game for Chelsea, he scored a sublime perfect hat-trick in their 4-2 victory over Burnley at Turf Moor (BBC Sport). Now, he has been given the nickname ‘Captain America’ from the Chelsea faithful who are now looking forward to seeing the winger potentially play in most games

One fan even stated that the midfielder reminded them of Damien Duff, which is a compliment in many ways as the Irishman was a very consistent player during his time at Stamford Bridge, producing 19 goals and 28 assists in 125 appearances.

What do we think?

The hat-trick against Burnley seems to have given Pulisic the confidence boost he needed. Now knowing that Frank Lampard has the belief and trust in him will also be a big positive to the winger without a doubt. It may be early in his Chelsea career, but there is nothing stopping the winger from kicking on and potentially following in the footsteps of Eden Hazard, with Roberto Martinez (as per Sky Sports’ Goals on Sunday, via Express) even stating that the American is exactly the same as Hazard in the final third.
