With Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic having been one of the Premier League's standout players since the season's restart, manager Frank Lampard has now compared him to Real Madrid star Eden Hazard.

The 21-year-old, whose first few months in the English top flight were inconsistent in form and plagued by injury, has become one of the Blues' key players as they aim to secure UEFA Champions League football for next season.

Lampard has now praised the USA international, comparing his first season with how Hazard started at Stamford Bridge.

"He's been hugely important. He has had that impact," the 42-year-old told Sky Sports.

"I was here for Eden (Hazard)'s first year and it is not easy coming to the Premier League, and even for Eden in that first year, it was adapting to the Premier League.

"Christian has had his moments of that but since mid-season, he had a really good patch, and then since restart he has been in incredible form.

"He is so young and he has such natural talent, and he creates goals and scores goals.

"(Against Liverpool) he came on and played 40 minutes, which is great for feeling confident about the injury and showed the qualities which he's been showing."

The American has been involved in 20 goals across all competitions (10 goals and 10 assists) for the Blues so far in this campaign, and has equalled the Belgian's Premier League goals tally of nine during his first season in England.
