Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has hinted at more playing time for hattrick hero Christian Pulisic on the back of his impressive performance for the Blues during the Premier League win over hosts Burnley on Saturday.

Christian Pulisic was handed his first start in the Premier League since August by Frank Lampard and the former Chelsea midfielder was repaid with three goals.

In his post-match press conference after the 4-2 win over Burnley, Frank Lampard revealed that he had to ease United States of America international Pulisic into the start of his career at Chelsea after he had just one week of rest this summer due to his involvement with his country at the Gold Cup.

Frank Lampard hinted that the American attacker will get more playing time though he was quick to point out that competition for places in the team is fierce.

Christian Pulisic made history with his hattrick as he became the youngest player to achieve the feat for Chelsea in the Premier League thus beating the record set by teammate Tammy Abraham earlier in the season.

Tammy Abraham scored three goals during the 5-2 away thrashing handed out to Wolverhampton Wanderers earlier in the season.

Chelsea have now won their last seven games in all competitions with the win over the Clarets.
